In order to get Dominican Republic, the auto-correct system gives you Dominica. The same thing happens with Jackson, Mississippi on US cities quizzes when people are trying to type Jacksonville.

I couldn't get away

A beam of light comes shining down on you

Shining down on you

The cloud is moving nearer still

Aurora borealis comes in view

Aurora comes in view

… And I ran, I ran so far away

I just ran, I ran all night and day

I couldn't get away

… Reached out a hand to touch your face

You're slowly disappearing from my view

'Pearing from my view

Reached out a hand to try again

I'm floating in a beam of light with you

… And I ran, I ran so far away

I just ran, I ran all night and day

We don't say dr Congo, its the official name, we just say Congo as everyday use. So if dr Congo is accepted, dpr Korea should also be in the list

We typically say DRC, seeing as there's another Congo right next door. Be horribly inconvenient to call them both Congo, wouldn't it?

In French, we call them Congo-Brazzaville and Congo-Kinshasa. Not only does it settle the debate about what letter they begin with, it also helps for the Capitals of the World quiz!

What I'm saying is: French is clearly the superior language.

Level 43
Aug 23, 2021
I call them Congo and D.R. Congo because Congo has usually always been called a variety of Congo but D.R.C. was called Zaire.

Why is "Democratic Republic of the" given? Since this quiz is about countries that start with D, I think D or (DR) should be the blank instead of the C.

Micronesia is an acceptable type in for the 'Countries that start with F'. Burma and Swaziland as well can be written in different letters.

I disagree about Micronesia starting with F, and two wrongs don't make a right! Burma and Swaziland are acceptable type-ins, not official answers.

If we're counting Congo what about DPRK (North Korea)?

Level 75
May 15, 2020
If that was done for every country there would be no end to it - Commonwealth of Australia, People's Republic of China, Federative Republic of Brazil, etc. There are two countries with Congo in their names so the full names are used to differentiate.

If you are going to use 'Democratic Republic of the Congo' in this quiz then it should be the format for every country that is a so called 'Democratic Republic' The very fact that the quiz already has 'Democratic Republic of the ......' given is testimony that jetpunkers would not usually use that part of the country's name.
+10
Level 76

The difference is that the DRC is always known as the DRC to distinguish it from the Republic of the Congo. North Korea might officially be called "The Democratic People's Republic of Korea", but everybody calls it North Korea because there are no other countries called North Korea.
+1
Level 69
May 14, 2020
Agree. This is messy. So DRC is going to be removed from the C’s – not to mention reordered in the literally dozens upon dozens of quizzes where DRC is considered a “C” country. But “Republic of Congo” is going to stay in the Cs, despite it really beginning with an R?

Quizmaster works very hard to keep country references very standard here. So is this how you want it?

Whatever I do people will whine. These countries by letter quizzes have been ordered this way since the earliest days of the site. I'm not going to change after nearly a decade.

Story time. Once upon a time, on our Oscar Best Pictures quiz, we used the year the movie was made, not the year of the ceremony. I got so many complaints that I changed it to the year of the ceremony. Did the complaints stop? No, of course not.

What I've learned from this episode is that, when there are multiple possible interpretations of the data, you will always get complaints. The worst thing to do is to twist in the wind, tinkering with the quiz to try to stop the complaints. Because you won't. It's impossible to please everyone.
