Oct 20, 2017
If you start in America, and work to the right--guessing more people are here and we read to the right in English--the last you come to is Oceania, so when you run out of time, that's undone--adding to lower numbers for Oceania. We all probably spent time working up to having them all memorized too, so what's undone is what's last as you think and think... These are typing races for those of us who never really typed (not enough classes if you were college prep in my day). So, although I'm getting closer when I practice, I sure have pulled down Oceania's ratings!

Why? Most of the government buildings are in Yaren, so it's practically its capital.

From Wikipedia: Yaren is usually listed as the capital of Nauru though this is incorrect; the republic does not have cities or an official capital. Yaren is accepted by the United Nations as the "main district".

Vatican City is four quarters of its country's area. Last I checked size relative to the country doesn't have anything to do with ability to be the capital. It's just that Nauru is really, really small.

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.

Accept New York for the capital of the U.S. Although Washington, D.C. is the official capital of the U.S., the District of Columbia is not a state. Many times, Americans themselves refer to their capital as New York. New York City is a city in New York and is the administrative centre of New York.

168. Also didn't cheat. I got Kingstown by luck because it was a type-in for Kingston. And yes, YOLO, except not according to a video that said a boy once said "in my past life I was murdered by an ax". The boy brought his family to a village and said "this is where it happened". It turned out there had recently been a murder there with an ax, and the village officials had not found the culprit. The boy gave a description of the man, and he was found. The man confessed to committing the murder. So maybe you don't always live once.

The latter is right, you spelled Jayawardenepura wrong. Just type in Kotte--- it works.

Sep 20, 2017
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.

Distinct lack of Ramallah. Of all your 'Worlds' quizzes and all the disputed territories you include as sovereign nations, it really sticks out that you choose not to put in Palestine. *Other* quiz sites do...just saying.....
+3
level 53
Aug 24, 2017
That's because Quizmaster is of the belief that Palestine isn't a country. And I heartily agree. It would be fine if they had just taken one of Israel's five attempted two-nation systems, but no.

level 15
Jan 28, 2018
This creator is probably from the United States and the United States does not recognize Jerusalem as Palestine's capital. The US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Palestine claims East Jerusalem as the capital while Israel does not recognize Palestine therefore recognizing all of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

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.
+2
level 55
Jul 8, 2017
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.

Keep practicing. You get quicker bit by bit. I used to run out of time but I've just done it with 2 mins to spare. I'm also now a much better typist! Try bunching things together. For example, there are 6 "Ports" so just rattle these off. And just typing "Ouagad" and "Kotte" and "Bandar" etc works.

Honestly, Tel Aviv should be considered right for Israel, seeing as Jerusalem is not widely recognized as its capital.

Sep 20, 2017
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?).

I know all the capitals by heart. Obviously when I'm running through them I can have brain farts and it takes me a second. Still, I know them pretty well. And I finished this with 9 seconds left. Part of the goal of things like this is to learn. Hard to learn when you don't have time to practice retrieving the information. This is a typing quiz, because there is no way anyone who doesn't already know the capitals cold gets through it. Let people work on their memory aids and take a breath between each one. Just my opinion.
