Minor quibble - if it's okay to list the CDC as Atlanta (nearest major city), then why isn't it okay to list the US Pacific fleet as Honolulu?

Same, except European bank (I was going around all the cities of western Germany but ran out of time). I know this is an American website, but nearly half being American for a world quiz is a bit much.

Why? The Academy is almost 4 times as far from Washington as the CIA campus in Langley. It is at least a 30 minute drive to the Academy without traffic from central Washington. At least, Langley is inside the Beltway.

Should've gotten the FBI one too, I've watched enough Criminal Minds or other police series. Got CIA just because of that. Also a bit peeved of thinking "Strasbourg" all the way, but writing down "Salzburg". Yes, it's a different city. My bad. Got 15/20.

Yeah, not knowing the local area at all, there's no chance of making that mistake. It's just an abstract name heard in TV and movies.

If you want Den Haag to be accepted then create the quiz again in Dutch.

^ If Den Haag is not acceptable for The Hague, then you should also translate Strasbourg into Strasburg and Luxembourg into Luxemburg.

But it‘s a point that needs to be addressed. Italian and German cities do always have the English and local expressions accepted, whereas I‘ve never seen Den Haag or Warszawa for example accepted in a quiz.

Slightly embarrassed to have forgotten West Point. I just suddenly drew a complete blank. Also had no idea about Interpol, but in that case I just flat out didn't know.

I tried Petropavlovsk-Kamtchatsky for the Russian Pacific Fleet base, because it's the only city I could remember on the East Coast of Russia.

West Point is not a city; it is the name of the U. S. Army Academy. The nearest city would Highlands, NY.
