I’m not, it’s a pretty small country. It helps that I always think of it as being paired with Nepal.

Yeah, another who missed it despite trying a few different spelling combinations. Not sure if I typoed or not, but I was trying the spelling I normally use (that I though was correct, obviously not) and it has been accept on all other quizes. Did you import Jet Punks type-ins, because it looks like you're a bit stricter on what is acceptable than a lot of other quizes. Fine if that's intentional, just a tad frustrating.

The spelling "Kyrgyrstan" is accepted in Countries of the World, but not on this one. I missed that one too, because of spelling.

It touches a few stans. Interestingly at the point where the west of China borders Kazakhstan, there is a four hour time difference. All of china runs at the same time as Beijing.

Level 67
May 15, 2020
71% currently, but it is the least guessed one. Maybe because as some pointed out previously normal type ins arent accepted? I haven't tried out what works or not though. It could be that currently it is standard type ins again.

It's that little piece of Afghanistan that sticks out at the top and stretches eastward. That part borders China. it's actually part of the ancient Silk Road, though currently the main pass is closed on the Chinese side.

Fun Fact: The border between Afghanistan and China is the largest single time-zone jump in the world, as China only uses one timezone. The difference is 3 hours and 30 minutes!
