It's kinda cool to think what would happen if 20 random countries just disappeared off the face of the planet. How the map would change, with big countries like Canada, Russia,

the US, and China gone, and how that would affect politics and the world in general.

I love this quiz. I won't even say how many times I've taken it, but I've only managed 100% three times. I can't believe that I can stare at the map until time runs out and not see the fact that a major country is missing (Italy). It's understandable to miss Malta or Belize, but Italy?!

Reached a plateau on shaving off any time for this one. In order to have a new challenge using the same quiz, now I look at the map and write down all 20 missing countries before I start it. The goal is to get the fastest time typing them all in when I already know what they are. After I've set that personal record, I'll start with only 19 pre-identified, then 18, etc. Did I mention I like his quiz? :D

Thanks to the warning in Italics at the top of the page, the South Pacific and African island nations aren't that hard because I know to keep a special eye out for them. But countries like the UK, Japan, and the Netherlands? Miss them every time. (I missed perfidious Albion three times on the road to 20/20!)

Not sure if this subject has been addressed before, but it seems that there are a few countries that disappear more frequently than others. Haven't keep count, but after having taken this quiz over 7,000 times (yes, I'm obsessed - I see how many I can do in a row under 45 seconds), I seem to have Gabon and Burkina Faso, for example, missing more often than a lot of other countries. Maybe I'm just going blind after so many attempts . . .

Love this quiz. The random factor makes it fun to replay over and over and race against one's own personal best time.

My only complaint is the choice of nations that are included vs not included in the set of countries that can be missing. I understand the choice to exclude micro-nations like Vatican City or those of the Lesser Antilles... but why include Malta or Nauru and not Cyprus, Lebanon or Singapore? Why not include East Timor or Qatar? Some of these are visible lands at this scale.

I would like to see East Timor, Lebanon, Cyprus, and Qatar included, if not all micro-nations highlighted like Seychelles, Nauru or Maldives.

How are we to know if the islands are missing or not? Sometimes the shaded light blue emptiness suggest it is missing. I type in its name and presto nothing happens, other times it is valid...
