Thank you, JetPunk, for accepting: 1. the U.K. when I try to type in Ukraine ... 2. Guinea when I try to type in Guinea-Bissau ... 3. Niger when I try to type in Nigeria ... 4. Dominica when I try to type in Dominican Republic --- Quizzer6794

Caution: Niger is a country, but so is Nigeria. So, it will think you're trying for Niger, but it won't give you credit for Nigeria. It's best to type in the full name in this case.

The best way (for me) is to learn the countries in geographical order (so for central america, it goes mexico, belize, guatemala, el salvador, honduras, nicaragua, costa rica, panama etc.) instead of just remembering the names. It will help lock it into your memory a lot better and helps when learning the capitals as well!

Can anybody explain why the area of French Guiana is left unfilled on the map? Admittedly,it is not a country (so typing its name gives no result) but being a region of France it should be filled when "France" is typed in. It seems strange that after South America is complete there remains a small yellow spot at this location as if the continent is incomplete... Quizmaster..?

Good spot, but also notice (Danish) Greenland, (American) Puerto Rico and (also French) New Caledonia, East of Australia. They too are greyed out so my guess is that major protectorates/dominions what have you are in grey to distinguish from fully self governing countries. I do agree with you that they, also, should be coloured green, but areas in conflict such as Western Sahara (Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic) would still have to stay grey as they are recognised only marginally by the UN. This also goes for the Armenia backed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Russian backed Abkhazia and Russian Ossetia in the Caucasus region and so forth. So political geography is pretty hard to piece together but I think that they greyed out bits are just fine, and I hope I explained what they are for. Louis ;)

*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

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

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 !

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.

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.

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.
