Nuku'alofa is the biggest city of his country, Tonga.

Great quiz.

Thanks! I was going to fix it, but I've actually just removed that clue entirely, since it's highly dependable on what population figures you look at. I think the new clues work better. The final answer for Blue is unchanged though.

Apia, and Samoa itself, are beyond the 180º line (the International Date Line), and so are in the Western Hemisphere.

Small objection to equating the International Date Line with 180º. The antimeridian runs for 12,440 miles from north to south pole, the IDL is ~41% longer, at somewhere north of 17,600 miles long, and crosses the Equator three times.

That's my fault, I've always known the IDL to be the 180⁰ line but never bothered to check whether that was actually the case. Thanks for the knowledge! :)

Should watch Johnny Harris's video about it, quite interesting (about the IDL)

I second this. I have always know it as Asmera and was surprised when it didn't accept. Tried Asmara and got it.

By chance, "La Paz" was the first answer I input for the yellow category. Filled that section out by just writing "La Paz" 4 more times in a row. Unexpected, but weirdly satisfying!

If you look at a map it becomes very clear that it is west of Dubai, envisioning it in your head though it's harder to tell because it surprised you

Always surprising how hard these are, surprised myself that i got all four first try (which I haven't gotten on any of these before). I think the best part is when you think you've got the final answer, type it in, then it doesn't accept it and you realise you've forgotten a clue. Always more thinking to be done

Indeed it does work for the 4th clue on Green. However it doesn't for the 5th and final clue since Jakarta is East of Dubai.

Great series Stewart, but it seems that there are quite a lot of questions based upon elevation. Personally, I don't know much about the elevations of capitals, so I am often tripped up on these clues!

I started the pink with Asmara, and just put it for every answer.
