All Countries of the World by Area, with map and as many letter hints as possible

List all world countries in order of size: at the end of each answer you are shown some letters of the following one. You will be shown as many letters as possible so that the possible answer isn't unique! Occasionally this will mean that no hints at all will be given (eg for Qatar as the Q would be enough to give away the answer; for the smallest country beginning with A etc).

First country begins with R!
When you guess a country, at the end of its name you will be shown the inital letter of the following one; dots after the initial mean the country's name is made up of more than 1 word
Area data from wikipedia, country names from 'Countries of the World Quiz'
Short time limit so you can practice until you learn the order very well!

This is great, took me a while to figure out why no hints were showing up for some countries.

It looks like the dots after initial for multiple word countries isn't working. Or I am not understanding that hint.

Maybe change 'Swaziland' to 'Eswatini', and 'Macedonia' to 'North Macedonia'

Thanks for the quiz

I don’t see how a short time limit helps you to learn. If like me, you’re mainly playing on your phone, you’re barely going to get halfway through, even with minimal thinking time, so this becomes yet another test of typing speed (which Jetpunk definitely has enough of and will be handy if I ever apply for a secretarial job). You’re not going to learn the material if it’s not revealed until after you’ve inevitably run out of time. This obsession with time limits (“I named every capital city of the world in 3.14 secs!”) is annoying at best, allowing too many people to confuse superior knowledge with superior typing speed, and at worst, alienates potential users who, through age, access to equipment, disability or language barrier, aren’t able to complete quizzes that they may well know how to answer otherwise and perhaps deter them from the site.
