ChineseChen, I know I shouldn't say that here, but take a look at the "Presidents of Brazil" quiz! I gave you an answer

This is a good quiz for the most part, but some of these statistics seem crazy. For example, not having cities like Akron or Riverside, while also including Johnson City, which is a little town in Tennessee with about 100k people in its metro.

Riverside is in the Los Angeles urban area and Akron is in Cleveland. As for my source, it's citypopulation.de, and is what a lot of people use. The link is here .

Literally never head of Johnson City and after looking around I have a *very* hard time believing it has 500k people in the metro area unless the metro area is literally all of eastern TN

Yeah the Johnson City urban area is basically all of northeastern Tennessee. According to Wikipedia, the population of the three counties of the Johnson City Metropolitan Statistical Area is about 195,000, but that's not the same as urban area. The urban area may be smaller or larger depending on the size of the urbanized area around the central cities. See CringeDragon's blog if you need a better explanation.

Great Quiz! 87/105. I would've never thought these urban areas could be so large

Charleston WV- City proper, around 46,000

Greenville SC- CP 58k

Johnson City CP 63k

yet they still make it here.
