Never thought Cyprus was in Asia.

That is a matter of contention in every quiz that differentiates between Europe and Asia. This website consistently considers it part of Asia, but it causes lots of arguments.

Missed Brunei. I knew that Bandar Seri Begawan is a capital of some country starting with letter 'B' and hence, I ended up trying Bahrain and Burundi which are not even in Asia.

Another point of contention - the name change (as well as the change of capital to Naypidaw from Rangoon/Yangon) was at the behest of the ruling military junta, which is not a fluffy hugs and bunnies government. Many people refuse to recognise the change and continue to refer to the country as Burma, though most agree that the de facto capital is indeed Naypidaw.

I'm befuddled by the fact that I got all but one correct (blanked on Bhutan for some reason), but only ended up in the 81st percentile of quiz takers, when so many of the answers have results in the 30 and 40 percent range. That seems mathematically impossible to me.

the more stats link up in the Scoring box might help you out. As of this writing, 18.6% of all quiz takers have scored 100% on this test. A mathematical improbability, perhaps, but not an impossibility (those 18.6 percent make up over half of those who knew Manama). This would seem improbable at first glance, but regular users of this site have probably learned the capitals for/from the world capitals quiz, which requires you to know all 196. After being able to ace that one, this is a walk in the park.

The Island of New Guinea is located on Australia's continental shelf. The rest of Indonesia is Asian, however.

All of these categorizations are arbitrary, but Oceania might be defined as the area in which Melanesian, Micronesian, and Polynesian people are indigenous. So that would include the entire area usually referred to as Oceania, as well as the eastern portion (vaguely defined, I know) of Indonesia, including the island of Timor - and thus East Timor as well. For the sake of simplicity, perhaps, Indonesia usually gets tossed into the Asia basket. Because there's not a White, Christian "continent" at stake, few people tend to get worked up about this, unlike the angst over the identity of Russia and (especially) Turkey.

Has anyone ever counted the number of times that a Jetpunk quiz claims that the cap of Israel is Jersusalem (not Tel Aviv)?

Aug 15, 2016
According to the Constitution of Israel, the capital is Jerusalem, but many countries have their embassies/consulate offices in Tel Aviv.

Aug 30, 2019
I doubt anyone has counted, but expect that JetPunk "claims" that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel as often as it "claims" that the capital of the USA is Washington, which is to say every time the matter arises, and for the same reason.

I agree. The capital is not called 'male', it is the capital of a country and deserves to have its e-acute. Please change it to 'Malé' if possible, as can be seen on other quizzes.

Well, if we're going to nitpick, the standard way of writing the capital in the Maldives is Male' - with an apostraphe, rather than an accent. At least some there believe that it signifies an abbreviation. There's no consensus on this though.

Kazakhstan renamed their capital to Nur-Sultan, but Astana would still be a great type-in
