In de "Libya" square, The dot for Cairo is visible, but apparently not accepted. Is that on purpose or missed?

This one is actually rather tough with there always being a square with some tiny island nation with a capital you only heard about on jetpunk.

Agreed, it's one thing to memorize all the capitals of Oceania, but it's another thing to determine which island nation is actually shown and what the corresponding capital is.

Brunei is rather easy as you just have to type Bandar i think, but Palau is truly hard. Ngerulmud has like 300 inhabitants according to Wikipedia.

Since when Colombo has changed to Kotte for Sri Lanka ?

Level 68

Colombo is de facto economic and legislative capital, but Kotte is the official and administrative capital. See this from Wikipedia:

Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte, commonly known as Kotte ([kɔːte]), is the official, administrative capital of Sri Lanka. Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte is a satellite city and located within the urban area of Sri Lanka's de facto economic and legislative capital, Colombo.
