Accept Vaiaku and Fongafale for capital of Tuvalu. Although Funafuti is the official capital of Tuvalu, Funafuti is just an atoll. Many times, Tuvaluans themselves refer to their capital as Vaiaku or Fongafale. Fongafale is an islet in Funafuti Atoll. Vaiaku is the administrative center of Tuvalu and is located on Fongafale islet in Funanfuti Atoll.

For future reference, break up the capital's name: Sri (from Sri Lanka), then Jaya (sounds like how it's spelt), then warden (thankfully an English word), then pura (again, sounds like how it's spelt), and finally Kotte. Or just type 'Kotte' and be happy.

There are not 196 "nations". What this quiz deals with is sovereign states. The "United Nations" is also a misnomer. The Kurds are a nation, so are the Inuit, Tatars, Tibetans, as well as German, Irish, Greek and Japanese. Conversely Vatican City citizens do not constitute a nation. Somewhat grey area, but contemporary usage is way off.

There are 193 UN members and 206 effectively sovereign states plus one sovereign entity. This quiz takes the UN members and adds the Vatican (a UN observer), Taiwan (an ex-UN member) and Kosovo (recognised by over half the UN membership). The remaining 10 are more controversial, either lacking recognition (Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, Nagorno-Karabakh, Transnistria, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, South Ossetia, Somaliland and Ashkelia) or not being fully sovereign despite having some UN recognition (Cook Islands, Palestinian Territories, Niue). The entity is the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta - which is a UN observer!!!

Can I respectfully request that the time be extended by a minute or two. This should be a test of knowledge not typing speed. As a two finger typist I just can't complete them all in time. For the periodic table of elements (118 elements) you get 12 minutes, which I can do with a minute to spare. Here there are 196 answers required in 12 minutes also (3.6 seconds per answer). I think 5 seconds per answer would be more reasonable.

Countries put their embassies in Tel Aviv for the same reasons that they call Taiwan 'Chinese Taipei': because if they don't, someone will get really really mad, even if they're obviously wrong. Tel Aviv should only be on there if Palestine is considered a country, which by Jetpunk's (and most of the world's unofficial) standards it is not.

It doesn't matter if Palestine is a country or not the point is that Muslims want control of Jerusalem and therefore don't recognize it as part of Israel. They've convinced large parts of the world that Jerusalem has been illegally annexed to Israel (though for some reason when it was conquered by Muslim Jordan that was legal and perfectly fine?).
