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.

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.....

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!!!
