I love this quiz because I've never stared so long at a blank space, convinced there is supposed to be a country there, but cannot work out what it is. Then I finish the quiz and realise that I'm going insane because there's never been a country there. Like some kind of Mandela Effect.

Would be nice if the quiz stated that none of the missing countries is smaller than (a given area), so people won't try to look for some small islands. Like Maldives, I'm pretty sure that Maldives aren't there.

12/12 with 1:30 left, by the way :)

I like how this quiz doesn't have countries missing where it would look like the world map is definitely wrong. Meaning that only experienced map-readers such as us JetPunkers would know where the world map looks slightly awry... the other quizzes like this one have, like, the US missing from the map, and it looks so weird
