Really? I thought that the English spelling is identical to the Spanish. Ah! I get it! You must be a Basque. Do you want the quizmaster to accept Iruña as an alternative?

I found the question: "Iran," very confusing. Could you maybe change it to: "The former name of Iran." Otherwise, great quiz! Thanks!

The official name of the currency of the UK is pound sterling and "Iran" is kind of vague for the Persia question. And I'd appreciate it if these quizzes were less focused on the US (Puget Sound & Potomac seems a little too specific compared to the other questions) and more about international geography. Apart from that the quiz is really good!

No one is going to stop you from cheating, but the spirit of the site is to test your knowledge. What do you gain from cheating on a site like this one? It's more fun to see how you compare, learn, and test your knowledge on the next quiz, or the same one later.
