In all fairness, it does say "Name the capital cities of the world's most populous countries", "Enter capital city here", and "When you guess the capital, the country will appear".

Oh, and the title: "Capitals of Most Populated Countries" not vice versa. Though that would be a cool spin-off...

I just wanna say that the UK is now a more populated country than France so the quiz might need updating

I really believed it should be Ho Chi Ming City and not Hanoi. No? Also it really is Islamabad and not Karachi, huh? Who would have thought? At least I knew Ankara (not Istanbul) :)

Is that Ho Chi Ming the Merciless? I think Flash Gordon, after snorting a couple of lines, kicked his arse, so that city doesn't exist any more.

Just did some back of the envelope math. If the world were as densely populated as Dhaka, the global population would be around 70 trillion (give or take 10s of millions). It's a big goal, but I think we can do it if we really get busy... ya know, gettin' bizzay.

I think Pakistan has passed Brazil, but that may be based on estimates and not raw data
