ironic though that when asking for the full name of Hull, you don't have to type it all out. It just accepts it on typing "Kingston"

Why ask for the full name of Hull then only let us type 'Kingston'? It'd be like asking us for the full name of Sri Lanka's capital giving it to us after we've typed 'Sri'

If you know the Kingston bit then the "upon Hull" is pretty redundant when it's in the question!

One small nitpick aside the great quiz: Monaco isn't a micronation, it's a microstate. Microstates are internationally recognized (Andorra, Monaco, etc.) whereas micronations aren't (Liberland, Sealand, Conch Republic, etc.)

For the city in UK starting with I, it looks like the small letter L, so that threw me off. The question should make it clear that capital I is meant, not small L.

Lego is both a company name, and the contraction of the Danish words "leg godt" which means "play well." It should NEVER be capitalised. Furthermore, not only do they originally come from there, but they still (primarily) do. The amount made in any other country is minimal to their output. Fix your question.

Surprised that Chechnya is so low, since it’s the only war-torn Russian republic that I know of. Maybe it’s a spelling issue.

Well, personnally, I never heard of it in English. Only knew Tchétchénie in French... And then I blame the rest on my ignorance, cause I never knew where it is. Thought it was further away. (And didn't really think about it at all : only russian republic I could think of was Crimea...)
