Actually, we've counted the Russian split of the Ural Mountains to divide Russia and form a marking of population between the continental sides. Since China is outrageously over-populated, beside many other Asian countries, as opposed to Europe, the country would be included on the top row, second-to-right, and not the bottom westernmost section of the quiz. Surprisingly, Bangladesh is more populated than Russia!

Got them all with over a minute to spare. The only hard part was Oceania. I got the first 3 pretty quick and after that it was just a matter of typing in all of the countries until I got the last two. Thankfully there aren't too many countries in Oceania.

These are some weird population figures. It seems like some are for city proper whilst some are for metro. If one travels from the City of Buenos Aires into Buenos Aires Province, there is no sudden wall where the city comes to an end - largely not even noticeable unless you're already aware that you are crossing the boundary. But put aside that objection for a moment, and the biggest issue here is the inconsistency. The City of Sydney, for example, has about 200,000 people - here it is given as 4 million, clearly a use of the metropolitan figure and not the city proper figure (which by the way is out of date, if you're rounding to the nearest million its 5 million now). At any rate there is talk at the moment of merging several New South Wales local governments. If the City of Sydney gets merged with others, will Sydney have suddenly doubled or tripled in size? Of course not. City proper is silly.

You're in the wrong quiz. Though: City proper is the way to go. It is a statistical value, that can be easily added or subtracted in every way it is needed for any purpose. With metropolitan etc., you're always dependend on the (often arbitrary) estimates of some source. You can't compare it with other figures, you can't just subtract or add it to a wider area, due to the inner inconsistency of metro area.

Urban area populations are bad but city proper populations are worse. For example, the city proper population of London is something like 7,000. Melbourne, Australia is about 100,000. Meanwhile, Louisville in Kentucky has a population of 700,000 because the "city" includes the entire county.

Well, first of all, you confuse the City of London with London, which are two different things. But anyhow, my point is this: You could always go and add the populations of the surrounding areas to that figure, so you can easily create a figure usefull for your purpose. If you are interested in the Population of the whole metro area - just add those numbers. While with urban area, metro area etc. you are allways depending on those analysis of someone, good or better, that may give highly inconsisten results in different geographic locations and in different times. Look at some "metro areas" in China - they include unpopulated area almost as big as whole states. You can't simply calculate smaller statistical values out of them, so they might be unuseful for many purposes.

Tanzania is going to come out ahead. The only question is have they already passed South Africa (probably) or will they pass them very soon. Also, Haiti kicked off Cuba, which is a very similar situation.
