Great quiz. I missed 3 in Africa. I thought Canberra would be on here but it turns out its only about 110km inland.

150 km actually, but still not far enough to make this quiz.

It is the capital in all but name. The parliament, government and central administration are all in La Paz. Only the Supreme Court is in La Paz.

You might want to edit that. I assume you mean Sucre in the second sentence.

Those are all near misses, with distances in the 180-190 km range, from the Gulf of Guinea, Mozambique, Thailand and the Black Sea respectively.

Sucks to miss both countries that (technically) have multiple capitals because you guessed the wrong one. Oh, well. Next time.

In my head Tehran was much deeper inside Iran than it actually is (less than 100 km from the Caspian coast). Was surprised Ankara didn't make it, but I see it's a near miss.
