I don't care if I know Transnistria is not on this quiz, I am still going to take the time to type it in.

Timor Leste is commonly regarded as East Timor, especially on every quiz on this site.

Please note the instructions. Timor-Leste is one of three countries (the others being Cabo Verde and Côte d’Ivoire) that are the same in every language. Check Timor-Leste's government website and you'll see that in both Tetum and Portuguese, the country's official languages, and in English, it's Timor-Leste. You could always write to the Timor-Leste government and tell them that they'll have to change their name to align with what a quiz website thinks it is, but that would be a bit like being introduced to Juan and you saying that's John in English so I'll call you John to keep it simple.

Relax Jerry928, not everybody reads the instructions, though I keyed in Timor-Leste first!!

It will be nice if the correct countries guessed are in a different colour.

Also a wee bit more time....

THANK you, Jerry928! - I am so sick of this website insisting that it's the authority on country names. I see that it had no problem in immediately embracing Eswatini and North Macedonia though!
