Huh, surprising. I tried Stockholm, and then didn't bother trying Oslo/Copenhagen because I thought Stockholm was the most well known Scandinavian capital.

I did the same thing with Stockholm - then passed on other Scandanavian cities. I tried several "tester cities" in other areas. Since Buenos Aires failed, I figured no other South American capitals would be on the list. Likewise, since Bangkok wasn't on the list, I didn't bother with other Southeast Asian capitals since I figured Bangkok was the most well known

I know, right?! And no Bandar Seri Begawan or Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte. Hard to believe! On a serious note...I really was surprised to see Vatican City, since many people don't realize it's a sovereign nation.

Its country name is the same as its capital. That and the fact that its only city is Vatican City, makes it easy to pinpoint its capital. Also, the quiz has the countries as hints.

My strategy for this was just type in all the obvious ones. Although I guess my definition of obvious is a little different to some since the first one I tried was Ottawa. I wasn't expecting it to be right at the top, but I'm kinda surprised that it wasn't there at all.

Great idea. It's weird how so many guess the Vatican on the original quiz, but so few people THINK that people guess the Vatican. There are several other mismatches, though not so dramatic, as you work down the list.

It is more like, the countries arent prompted here. If you ask what is the capital of vatican city, most people would know. But in itself it is one easy to overlook.

Canada, the US, China, Brazil, and Russia are large countries. The rest of Europe is divided into many smaller countries, so it has more capitals for people to guess. (Somehow that made more sense in my head than it does looking at it now. I hope you get what I'm trying to say.)

I thought Australia and Canada's capitals would be on there. I was surprised when it wasn't. Also, most of the answers say the country on the left column, but it says Lisbon instead of Portugal for the answer of Lisbon.

Really shocked about Brazil. Since it isn't one of the principal cities of the country. I would have guessed Cairo, Prague, Warsaw. And would have wagered a sizable bet that Buenos Aires or Bogota were ahead of it in South American capitals

Considering most of the quizzes are very America oriented I am surprised to see Washington ranking only 5th... as well as by the absence of Kabul or Baghdad... I thought years of daily news had left a mark...

I'm also Mexican. Mexico is one of the few countries people in the US are nearly universally aware of, and a lot of people here are from the US :-)

And you ain't wrong. What i meant to say is that it might be more believable that people would have guessed up many other relevant financial and political cities for the world panorama rather than CDMX, as there are many people here in Jetpunk from way too different countries (specially europeans) who might have gone up to write down more cities from the other side of the pond. Even though, we can acknowledge that Mexico is indeed at the world spot as this nation is the lovely backyard for american people. I guess many of those who guessed our capital were unaware about the sole existance of the city, rather they just tried on to put "Mexico City" to see if that answer was available. I've met plenty people who have tried typing down every single country's name adding a "city" at the end, like "Nicaragua City", "Indonesia City" "Eritrea City". Saludos desde Veracruz.

Or a lot of people around the world have learned geography and history with a Eurocentric bias. Not that a lot of people here aren't either North Americans or Europeans by birth, culture, location or education. Which kind of repeats the point above.
