*waynesymes - Some people obviously haven't heard of some of these countries before. You don't need to criticize and discourage them. One of the purposes of this quiz is to educate people and help them learn in a fun way, not out of a textbook.

Please increase the timing up to 15 minutes. i can do this without timing. eventhough all the nations are known , i lack of time. or create another quiz with the intention of only testing geography skills. this is not like a geography quiz it resembles the typing master software

Has anyone considered creating this same quiz but dating it for say... 1914 or 1940? It would be even more challenging!

So, let's say you need 2 seconds per country to write down, that makes 392 seconds in total. If you devide that by 60, you should come out at the minutes taken to write down all the countries, without any misstyping or thinking at all = 6,5 Minutes 6,5 Minutes just to write it all down. Let's say you are a real hero and you do it in 6 Minutes, for what reason ever.....but how can people do that Quizz in approx. 4,5 Minutes ?? They must have 2 brains and 4 hands. Bravo :))

Are they one finger typing? 2 seconds is way too long for the average. Do remember alot of these have short hand eg uk usa uae and congo gets two at once.
May 21, 2015
(12)
way too long....? So to be part of the hall of fame here I have to be not older than 7, typing perfectly with 10 fingers, need extraordinary geographical skills or photographic memory. Okdoky, I will work on it !
May 23, 2015

I have done some number crunching and using your conditions "... without any misstyping or thinking at all ..." I get the longest time to complete at 8m 55s. This is with 100% correct spelling as in the answer table, with one exception Sao Tome and Principe does not have its accents. This is based on there being 1693 characters (including spaces -'s and 's) and the average typing speed of 190 characters per second. Seen as you don't need to add spaces or special characters and the large amount of short cuts; like congo which completes both Democratic Republic of the Congo and Republic of the Congo saving 54 characters then this time will decrease dramatically.

First of all, there's 196 on this quiz, not 198. Second of all, you aren't 2 years old or you wouldn't know how to spell or speak or do almost anything for that matter (horrible troll) Third of all, you never completed this or you would AT LEAST be a Level 2, you are still a Level 1.

I've noticed several people have mentioned how difficult it is to see some of the smaller countries on the map. Just as a suggestion, if you hit ctrl and + your screen will zoom in; the bigger map makes it easier to see. Type it more than once for multiple zooms; conversely ctrl and - zooms out. ctrl and 0 will bring you back to your normal screen size from whatever you have it set to.

You should mark East Timor as micronation. Officially it is not but it's very difficult to see it on the map, same as Lebanon and Guinea-Bissau. Got 195/196 twice now
May 22, 2015

Hey folks, probably the hardest ones to get are the ones that don't show if you guessed them. I'm talking about nations so small, they're no bigger than cities, such as Vatican City, Monaco, etc. The ones that is difficult are the hard ones to spell. Those, I always miss!

I finally got it! The best way to get 100% for me is to try to memorize the ones I missed on earlier attempts. For example, I commonly miss Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, Palau, and Antigua and Barbuda, so I tried to memorize those, and then for the next time I would type those in first to get them out of the way. Also, for those who don't already know: at the bottom of the map, check the box that says "Show Dots for Micro-Nations" to show the small countries to make it easier to get all of them. Hope this helps!

It's taken me a long time to get better at this, but my high score is now 178. And I have gotten every country before... just never all in one attempt. I can finally confidently finish Europe with no trouble.

6:03 left. Finally passed with more than half of the time left. I've passed it many times, but never with more than six minutes remaining. Finally. I just do Africa, North America, Central America/Caribbean, South America, Oceania, most of Asia, the Arabian Peninsula and others surrounding it, the -stan countries, and finish with Europe.

How about taking "spelling 101"? Then move on to "grammar 101". And if they offer it, "punctuation 101". :-)

There's not enough time! I got 183/196. I had to go back and do ones again that I spelt wrong but still. If there were 5 extra minutes i probably would've done it. Good quiz though

Any chance of accepting "DPRK" for North Korea?
Jun 14, 2015

I find that the best way for me to do it is as follows: North/central/south america from north to south, then carribean, then europe, then asia west to east, then the island nations in both oceania and the indian ocean, then to africa.
Jun 15, 2015

You should accept dprk for North Korea

I've made this comment on other quizzes, but it's valid here. Why is Cyprus listed as Asia when it is part of the EU and its currency is the euro. Sorry if this point has been made before.
Jun 19, 2015

currency is a poor reason to accept a country as part of another continent. the Philippines uses pesos...are they part of North America because mexico uses pesos? or is mexico part of asia?
Jun 19, 2015

(40)
You are presumably joking. Cyprus use the European currency (euro), and they are a member of the EU (the European Union). And they are not thousands of miles away from the rest of the countries that use the currency and are members of that Union.

Politically it's considered to be in Europe; geographically it's considered to be in Asia. I think they're correct by putting it in Asia, as it's tectonically the same as Turkey, which happens to be more geographically Asian too.

I love this quiz. Time-saving abbreviations that work: USA, UK, UAE, CAR (Central African Republic), PNG (Papua New Guinea), Congo (both countries). Also, "St" for "Saint" (Kitts, Lucia, Vincent).

Yes! I have done this one repeatedly and have finally completed it with 43 seconds to spare. On my first go I only got around 130 so this has been a really good educational tool. Although I suspect I'll have to do it regularly if I want to retain the information long term

Mastered this in about four days. My method is to start with the Caribbean, then do Oceania, then do all the other micro countries and islands. Once only the visible landlocked countries are left, it's much easier.

I did this for about 1 month everyday at work. Here are my best times. This is how long it took me to finish: 6:54, 7:01, 7:21, 7:23, 8:08, 8:09, 8:16, 8:17, 8:25, 8:26, 8:34, 8:50, 8:57 So my best was all countries in 6:54 seconds! To be honest... I nail out the tough areas (The stans, The guineas, The little european countries, The 4 soviet satellite states in asia, the Yugoslavian pandemonium, The 3 B's [bahrain, brunei and bhutan] and lastly the African M countries). After all of these areas... The rest of the world I can now do in order and people at my work are amazed :) I think it's easy! This is an awesome quiz and I think has not only helped me keep my mind sharp in a fun way, but has also helped me learn the world! Also, every day I do the quiz I wikipedia one country I don't know much about and read up about that country and learn! Cool Beans and Good Luck to all!
