One question: how it's possible that the closest capital to Jakarta is Singapore and the closest to Singapore is Kuala Lumpur? It's a bit nonsense, isn't it?

This quiz is about sovereign nations. The 50 US states have capitals in their own rights too.

..... Here we go again with the people from the UK that don't live in England. Listen, if you want to be considered a country, then get your independence. In the meantime, the capital of the WHOLE of UK is LONDON.

Or you could be like me, who gets that concept but only tried Jakarta for Singapore, and only tried Kuala Lumpur for Jakarta. I even started trying to spell Brunei's capital that takes me like 6 tries to get right, so it wasn't laziness, just stupidity.

Djibouti was the one that got me. 19/20. I tried Sana'a for Oman, then found that it was Abu Dhabi but I never would have got it for Djibouti, but I suppose it makes sense, as East Africa is very close to the Arab Peninsula.
