Level 65
Feb 13, 2016
They can't make a answear right in all languagers, Eire is Irish, not English, soo.... like me as a Norwegian, would write Irland, neither Ireland or Eire.
+1
Level 74
Jun 8, 2018
But it is more than reasonable to allow the name of the country in the language of that country. After all, that IS the right answer, not an English translation.
+16
Level 71
Jul 3, 2018
This quiz is in the English Language and therefore the answers not surprisingly are in English. Likewise if I go on a French Language quiz I expect (and am proved correct) that the answers are in French e.g. In a World Countries in French Language the answer for Ireland is 'Irlande' not Eire or Ireland ....
+7
Level 59
Jul 20, 2018
Hardly any people speak Irish. If you allow "Eire," you might as well allow the Polish for Ireland because there are about 200,000 native Polish speakers while there are only about 100,000 Irish speakers.

No because while it is Ireland as gaeilge few irish people call the country by that name on a regular basis.

+4
Level 56
Feb 17, 2015
USA is listed as 71 degrees North. The lower 48 stops at the so-called "49th Parallel", so the part of the USA which makes it count on this quiz is undoubtdedly Alaska.

Level 48
Jan 28, 2016
Even though parts of Barrow, Alaska are slightly farther north than Knivskjellodden, Norway, Spitsbergen is much farther north, as is Russia and Canada, evident from the coördinations given in the quiz.

it looks close, but if you look up the latitude of the most northerly point in each country, you will see that the Ukraine just barely edges out Mongolia for the last spot on the list

Some of the claims on these quizzes seem a little far fetched at times. Somebody claimed to do this one in 31 seconds. Really? I mean come on, seriously! Even if I had the list of countries right in front of me it would be a trick to type all 20 in 31 seconds.
+3
Level 59
Jul 20, 2018
I did it in 41 seconds and I wasn't even typing that quickly. It depends on your typing speed and knowledge of the latitudes of countries. It's not that surprising considering the amount of geography fanatics here on JetPunk.

There are some people that think it is cleverer to win by cheating than to actually have the knowledge:

Level 59
Jul 20, 2018
I can't tell if you're implying that Instrumental is cheating or just trying to point something out.
+2
Level 69
Jul 20, 2018
I think this is just a misunderstanding of an idiom and not realizing that Instrumental just has these things committed to memory at this point rather than having them literally written on a lock.

Level 66
Sep 4, 2018
@Silver, in this case it doesn't. @kalbahamut, I would be interested to have a reference to a textbook that says a comparative is the same thing as a superlative (an English one, as I know they are in some languages). A superlative is an adjective or adverb describing the highest degree of something, whereas a comparative describes one thing as having a greater degree of a certain quality than another.

Just a personal thing ... I'd make it so Holland and the Netherlands both count. Cus there's no right or wrong answer there as far as I'm aware.

Level 63
Apr 14, 2016
Holland is not a country. North Holland and South Holland are provinces IN the Netherlands.
+2
Level 70
Feb 15, 2017
...but the name Holland is pretty commonly used as a pars pro toto for the Netherlands. For instance, the song 'Hup Holland Hup' doesn't exclude the other 10 provinces.

Do they allow " the 13 Colonies" for the U.S.?

No, because Holland is only one province of the Netherlands
+1
Level 76
May 10, 2017
So you presumably insist on the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland?
+1
Level 59
Jul 20, 2018
There's a difference between shortening the name of a country in the name of simplicity and just including regions and provinces as type-ins. If Holland were allowed, the amount of arguments for each of the 50 states to be type-ins and for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to be type-ins for their respective sovereign states would be astronomical.
+1
Level 55
Jun 17, 2022
lol chill down mate. we know holland is a part of the netherlands but we also know it's a very common name to refer to the whole country. yes it's technically wrong but so what, don't be so pedantic

You are missing something, and that something is that the Faroe Islands are not a sovereign nation.

Quiz suggestion: Find out what the latitude of the average square mile in a country is in relation to the North pole. Then, use this info to make a quiz. I would not know how to do this, so I'll give my idea to you.
+2
Level 66
Sep 4, 2018
There are a few ways to define the exact centre of a country. You can find the point inside it furthest from a border or coastline (in maths this is called the incentre). Alternatively you can try to find a centre of mass (centroid) assuming an equal distribution of mass. This will heavily depend on what you count (e.g. including French Guiana as part of France will move the centroid possibly into Spain?)

So everybody seems to accept Ukraine is that far north as to make it on this quiz?! It's on the damn Black Sea, which makes it practically Mediterranian! Took me a bit to guess that one. And still it makes it further north than Mongolia. Yep, signing up for club "Mongolia, you are further north than that, right?".
+1
Level 80
Feb 17, 2017
What kind of logic is this? USA and China are partly in the tropics, and Russia is on the Black Sea/Mediterranean as well. Ukraine is not that small and despite having nice warm beaches in summer, it has evry cold winters.

I think part of the confusion is that the Mediterranean is further north than one would think. NYC is south of Rome, and the beaches at Odessa are further north than Minneapolis or Montreal.

I live in Manchester, which is on the same latitude. The other side of the problem is having to get up before the sun rises in winter. I've never really noticed much difference in other countries I go to, possibly because I more often go on holiday in August (where there isn't as much difference), possibly because the furthest south I've been is only around 35°N, and possibly because I get up later on holiday anyway.

I love all the people disputing the answers to this, especially the 'But Mongolia is north of China!' crowd. Objectively that is not the case, Manchuria, specifically Heilongjiang, is more northerly. If you really don't believe it, Google Maps or Google Earth can display the latitude of any point. It's very easy to check.

I never really look at both sides of Asia at the same time, and think to myself to compare how high up Belarus, the Ukraine or Kazakhstan comes compared to the likes of Mongolia, Japan or South Korea... I could eventually figure out everything here - but I tried a lot of wrong things first.

Without checking the map, I suspect that Mongolia is on the whole higher than Belarus or the Ukraine, just not quite so far North.

Mongolia ranges from 41 degrees to 50. Ukraine from 45-52 (44 if you count Crimea). And Belarus is north of Ukraine. So they're more northern both in average latitude and northernmost latitude.

I think you need to specify which definition of 'northernmost' you mean. It became clear from the answers that it must be based on how far the northernmost point of the country is, but 'northernmost' can also be defined by things like how far north the country's median latitude is or how far north its southernmost point is, or how far north the population is on average, and it was not clear from the title which of these many definitions was intended.

North Korea is nowhere near this level. I think it goes to about 41, whereas the lowest country on this list is 52. Japan, too, is only about 45. Belgium is close however. Mongolia is somewhat close, I think it goes up to 49 or 50 (but might be closer than I think).

To author: you should make an explicit statement that overseas departments of France do not count (St Pierre and Miquelon borders northern province of New Foundland, Canada). Either that, or include France and drop Ukraine.

And no these overseas departments are NOT colonies or territories like Puerto Rico, they are an integral component of France. This is the reason why France's longest land border is with Brazil (another interesting factoid).

St Pierre and Miquelon is not an overseas department though, it's just a territory. All of France's actual overseas departments are further south than mainland France.

Even if you include overseas territories, France would not be included. St Pierre & Miquelon is considerably further south than the northern part of metropolitan France.

I cannot agree with this, as an American. Before Alaska became a state, then I may agree with this, but Alaska is part of our fifty states, so therefore it is our mainland and not an overseas territory.
