Interesting to see that according to ISO, and the United Nations short-form country list, that what Jetpunk calls "Republic of Congo" appears simply as "Congo".

But it doesn't even include spelling for the most part? You don't have to spell out Herzegovina and I for sure spelled Kazakhstan wrong for sure. Typing 'Congo' is sufficient for Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo haha. As well as 'CAR' and 'UAE'

After constantly just running out of time for the last three weeks finally got 196 out of 196 with 1 min 41 seconds to spare! A proper strategy to finish each continent at a time in a particular order and then the islands worked and made sure nothing gets missed.

It took me a few tries to have the ability to do this, but try taking a slow run now that you know you can get all 196 just to know exactly where each country is located. That way when youre trying to get a better time you can just click on the "show missing countries" button and quickly realize what you missed.

Quizmaster I was wondering why Northern Cyprus, Abkhazia, Artsakh, South Ossetia, Transnistria, and Somaliland are not on the quiz. I can understand that Palestine and Western Sahara have bad border control, but all of these contries have border control. Not to mention Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and Northern Cyprus has some recognition.

Perhaps having an interest in world geography is a hobby. And calling everyone liars is low, not classy at all. It really isn't that hard to learn these, with a bit of time. Or is a little hard work too much for you and you give up?

Can we have an updated map please? Samoa, Tonga and Tuvalu are in the wrong place. Samoa and Tonga both lie east of the 180 degree meridian, so should appear at the far left of the map. Tuvalu is due north of Fiji, not north-east, and has a reasonable size - its islands cover a spread of 700 km / 440 miles. At the moment it has a small Nauru-sized dot, as if it was a single small island. (I posted this last year, but nothing's been done yet!)

The map's edges are not on the 180 degree E/W meridian: Samoa is not further east than the extreme easterly part of Russia, so its place on the map here is correct (and likewise with Tonga, which isn't quite as far east as Samoa). Tuvalu looks to be in the right position too - it's showing as due north of Fiji (maybe it's been changed recently).
