Still so many countries (and places) with a z in its name not in this quiz, and they choose one where the answer is basically in the question allready. I am referring to Czech-Czechia

I guess some might appreciate a freebee, but it would not have been my choice. So much more interesting questions could have been used instead of that one.

Plus, my own mistake, I was looking for a term for a country with cantons, unsurprisingly I could not think of one haha

About Czechia: I think that's there to educate people that you can use that as an answer, instead of having to type all of Czech Republic. ;)
