You mean Funafuti, Tuvalu isn't one of the top Oceania answers? It's so fun to say...almost as much fun as Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

Thing is the capital city of Sri Lanka is known as 'Colombo' to the rest of the world, but they give it the native name on jetpunk which is really annoying.

Panama City is there now, but Guatemala City still isn't. I was surprised to see Havana there, but I guess that's because most of the quizzers on this website are from the USA

Somehow I feel these results are more representative of the population as a whole, rather than the geography nerds here on Jetpunk. I'm still surprised at how low some of these are though.

South Africa has actually managed to pick three capital cities without naming their biggest city as one of them. Pretoria, Cape Town and Bloemfontein are all capitals of South Africa, but Johannesburg isn't.
