Netherlands Antilles was dissolved in 2010, creating the new countries of Curaçao, Sint Maarten and Aruba in the process. They all remain in free association with the country of the Netherlands, a bit like Marshall Islands is with the United States. The remaining parts of Netherlands Antilles (Saba, Sint Eustatius and Bonaire) have come within the country of the Netherlands. To make it more confusing, all of these states are all a part of the broader Kingdom of the Netherlands - Netherland's answer to the British Commonwealth, perhaps?

"C" is an infuriating letter. It can sound like "k", "s" or "ch", so unlike the other country by letter quizzes, there is not one specific sound associated with the letter. I always mess up this one. Gah.

I don't agree with a lot of what people are saying here, but the way you've done this quiz, I think Cote D'Ivoire shouldn't be on it as the way people who speak English say it, it is almost always Ivory Coast

They are, actually. New Zealanders have to have a passport to enter Cook Islands, and they do not have the right to reside or vote there. The Cooks have their own parliament, prime minister, flag, are members of several UN agencies (though aren't a full member), and even its foreign policy is, despite its free association status with NZ, independent of NZ as well. That places it at clear arms length from NZ, compared with Micronesia and Marshall Islands, which are both more closely tied to the United States.

Cook Islanders are citizens of New Zealand. Cook Islands rely on the New Zealand government for Foregin Affairs policy as well as defense. And the Cook Islands parliament was formerly a hotel. To claim to be an independent nation is just silly.

I was going to say maybe it was the CH that through you, but it sounds like you got Chad and Chile so.... As far as Ivory Coast, I think most people miss that one. It really doesn't belong on this quiz. How would a person who doesn't speak French ever come up with that. I speak French, and I missed it. Never even crossed my mind. :)

Re: Cabo Verde and Cote D'Ivoire. Both of these countries have issued official statements declaring that these are the names by which they would like to be called, which is why the convention is to call them by these names. Cabo Verde's was very recent (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/12/131212-maps-cabo-verde-cartography-science-cape-verde-africa/). It might be outside the scope of this conversation to discuss why they feel so strongly about that, but, in any case, the governments of Cabo Verde and Cote D'Ivoire have specifically stated they do not want to be called Cape Verde or Ivory Coast, respectively.

No. The official name of the country is the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire. Ivory Coast is only a translation. These quizzes use official names (short or long forms). You say Ecuador, not Equator ? It's the same : some countries have chosen a non-anglophone official name !

A recently deposed Prime Minister of my country once referred to Canada as Canadia. Of course he was an idiot, but he was a democratically elected idiot. Just keep that in mind USA, as the Trump mobile gathers steam towards the White House. But then, Trump is not really stupid. The contradictory statements, conflicting moral viewpoints and apparent confusion are all a part of his campaign strategy. Michael Moore may well be right when he says that only satire can bring him down(of course, he is a satirist), and that brains and logic are useless against him.

Curacao was never part of Venezuela. Liberator Simon Bolivar fled to Curacao when the tide turned against him, but the island was never owned by Venezuela. There is a refinery on the island (Isla) that refined Venezuelan crude oil, but I think that even that has now been sold.
