This is probably the toughest of the continents so far to get all of them. Took me 4 tries to figure out a good system. Probably 5 seconds more would make it immeasurably easier.

Agree. It's tough because there's quite a few long ones that are you are required to type such as Philippines. There's also no easy way to get South Korea or Turkmenistan.

Okay, I'm quite a bit late but here's the Taiwanese lowdown. Taiwan (which was then called China, at least by many Europeans) used to be where China is now. Then China up and happened via a lot of historical events everybody kind of remembers and ran Taiwan out of the place and onto their island. China proceeded to claim that not only had they not taken over the mainland from suddenly-Taiwan, Taiwan didn't exist at all. At first it was kind of funny. Then China became a world superpower and, well, nobody wants to make them angry. Nowadays, then, most countries don't formally recognise Taiwan to avoid getting on China's bad side, but otherwise they act in every way like Taiwan's a real country. (The alternative would be to consider Taiwan part of China, which simply doesn't bear out if you go to the place.)

Singapore has two borders, Indonesia and Malaysia, but yet is not being counted when i type them in.

By habit from the world version, I type both indonesia and malaysia separately to get Brunei, East Timor, and Singapore along with it. This quiz is not counting singapore unless i manually type singapore in.

I think it's Jetpunk policy to consider Singapore an island nation, and thus not view it as bordering any other countries. I think that's a bit debatable seeing as its northern border is a river and not a sea, but so be it...

My strategy uses Afghanistan instead of Turkmenistan. Both get most of the stans, and china is almost necessary anyway.

If you're typing Bangladesh, just type India to save time. Same with Laos instead of Cambodia.

There’s actually a tiny bit of land between Singapore and Indonesia (very thin strip) that a roadway was built on. However, if you look under the round, there is a tiny portion of land, so Singapore should be filled in when you type “Malaysia.”
