La Paz is a functional Capital (if not official) and widely accepted as well on jetpunk.

You are right. I added La Paz as an alternative answer with Sucre. I know they are separate cities, but usually on JetPunk you have to know only one of the Bolivian capitals.

I tried that too but that's right, in English, it has six letters (and since I love Ultravox, I don't mind). The list would be slightly different in any other language (for example, in french : Juba -> Djouba, but Beijing -> Pekin).

Spanish does throw out a lot of extraneous letters. British English likes to add more in.

A technical tip for you, if the missing left-hand border bugs you - if you add a blank column to the left of that leftmost column (within that same block), then set that new blank column's borders to zero, the left hand border will reappear - goodness knows why!

Thought of Amman and dismissed it as too long without trying it - the two Ms make it look longer than it is. Should have just typed it anyway!

A good one to get a start on learning all the capital. I scored low on this list compared to others ( though I felt I did pretty well before I saw the results haha)

After seeing the answer I recognise several, with different levels of familiarity. But could have gotten atleast 5 more (dakar, tunis, hanoi, vaduz (kept thinking about it, but thought valduz..) and perhaps quito, and on a good day also kabul)

Yaren is not actually a capital, it is just the largest city in Nauru, which as no capital
