WOW! This quiz proved to be rather difficult. When put on a timer its funny how fast the brain shuts down and renders a person unable to think. Angus D. Glasgow, SCO.

Shouldn't the answer for Moldova be Micronesia?

I think Micronesia technically starts with an "F," since it's the Federated States of Micronesia.

I've never understand why we do this distinction for Micronesia and not for other countries: French Republic, Federal Republic of Germany, Swiss Confederation, Kingdom of Belgium, etc. which are the official names of those countries...

siocnarfus: I'd say a more relevant comparison is to the name of the USA - sometimes just called America or the United States instead of its full name. But I do see where you're coming from.

Absolutely - regardless of these comparisons, the quiz clearly specifies that it uses the Short Name according to Wikipedia, so Federated States of should be dropped and just leave with Micronesia, as per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micronesia

The country in the Pacific should be alphabetized as "Micronesia, Federated States of", IMO. Just as it should be "Macedonia, Former Yugoslav Republic of". Just as it should be "Gambia, The". Just my 2 cents.

Wouldn't that be similar to alphabetizing the USA as "America, United States of?"

Very hard. Could have used about three more minutes. It seemed much easier to think of the countries which came immediately after.
