Nice! I wonder if you could try and keep the number of letters "hidden" but you know in each section there's an answer for each length from 4 to 12, so that as you go along you get a hint on the length of the answers that are left. I think Turkmenistan/Ashgabat need to be swapped; also I thought Andes are longer than Himalayas. I wonder if "UralS" is more correct?

Thanks for the series!

Lol! Mountain has been edited. But I don't see anything wrong with Utah's adjectival form, Utahn.

It's like saying "French" for France or "Spanish" for Spain. "Utahn" for Utah.
