Maybe say "Country where Lake Victoria drains into the Nile" because the Nile is also considered to flow into Lake Victoria in Tanzania. Other sources, though, state that Lake Victoria itself is the source of the Nile.

Conjoined twins Eng and Chang were born in Siam. An early name for conjoined twins was Siamese twins, named after the birthplace of Eng and Chang. Although Siam is now called Thailand, at the time of their birth, their birth country was Siam.

It would be better to say 4,300 km long and 350 km wide. "Tall" refers to height, and I think Everest is less than 9 km tall.

Agree, I was thinking of small countries that had the tallest mountains.

Even though I agree that "tall" is not appropriate, I think it is obvious that no moutains are 4300km high...

Yes, the clue is giving the country's length & width, while the word "tall" indicates height. And despite 73% getting it right, the description is still mighty awkward.

It does, however, potentially suggest a north-south orientation.

Absolutely! - I doubt that "Tall" is ever used to describe a country's length.

Maybe change the first clue to "long" and not "tall".
