The missing 1% comes from people who quit the quiz without writing anything, either because they got here by mistake or because they clicked "random quiz" and didn't want to do this.

No, if you don't type anything in then it doesn't count as you playing it. I open up Countries of the World a lot to make some of my quizzes and still have an overall percentage of 100%. On my stats, it says that I've taken that quiz four times even though I've clicked it and hit "Give Up?" about twenty. So even if they didn't type anything in, it's not going to change % guessed correct. The missing 1% at the time was probably from people purposely not typing it in or skipping it and not coming back to type it in later.

I don't know whether it would have helped much but what is the context for these country codes? Postal, internet, telephone? Who assigned these codes and what are they used for?

I had to google to find the answer - I had no idea an International Organization of Standards even existed. It was formed in 1974 and there are three subdivisions - current countries, subdivisions within those countries (such as states or provinces), and former countries. The codes are voted on and maintained by a ten-member panel based in Geneva, Switzerland. Five members are from the USA, France, UK, Germany, and Sweden, and the remaining five are representatives from various UN or international agencies.

Kept trying different kinds of "Arab Emirates" without the "United". Maybe you should accept "Arab Emirates".

No, it's actually from Dutch: Zuid Afrika. Afrikaans is Suid Afrika. We couldn't use SA because Saudi Arabia already was.

I was so convinced that "CH" would be a country that started with those two letters. Even still, the only one I could come up with was China. And then I got Serbia on a total fluke...

That's kind of ironic as they have four(?) official languages, of which Latin isn't one
