Nothing is ridiculous here. The quiz is not a matter of opinion. It's a matter of fact. Aside from continental drift and political boundary changes, these distances do not change.

551 km / 342 miles. One of the next generation of countries deserving of full statehood, if only the nations (Iraq/Turkey/Syria/Iran in this case) hanging onto them will let go and let their inhabitants decide their future.

My eyeball says Egypt and Russia are almost exactly the same distance. I assume the quizmaster did the homework to confirm Russia is just a hair closer.

Did them all first try, only 50 secs remaning though. Russia caught me out a lot, wasnt expecting that. You need very good geographical knowledge of the countries around there otherwise I dont think anyone would be able to get them all

no you didn't i don't believe many people went 22 for 22 on the first try it is a travesty that people come on here and lie they achieved 100 percent on the first try , i have been looking at geography my whole life i achieved 20 for 22 on my first try and astoundingly only better than 40 percent of test takers , an utter travesty that people take the quiz over and over and over and over to get a perfect score then brag about it , ok maybe you did but i am highly suspicious of these Geography whizzes here yes there are some but , to say that I stack up at 40 percent with all of you is utter nonsense

Only the first tries are recorded in the stats, although you can repeat the quiz to improve your own points tally. Unusually for this series, this quiz gives you a generous 4:00 to complete it. Most of these quizzes only give you 2:30, so I'm not surprised so many are getting 22/22 here.

I have personally considered Palestine to be a country for many reasons, including from personal observation on a trip there in 2016. When quizzes are featured, they are edited to align with this website's editorial policy to not recognize Palestine as a country. The reason given for that is that a nation with much of its area under occupation, as Palestine is, that "doesn't control its own borders", does not qualify as a country.. If you disagree with that approach, contact the website through the Contact Us page.
