Spent too long trying to type capital cities that ended in 'O' before I remembered that the country was the required answer, not the city name.

I don't understand the 'sovereign country' one. Did you mean that became sovereign then? I thought all independent countries are considered sovereign.

The rest were not sovereign since they were controlled by another country (mainly European ones). I think

The others were all colonies of European countries. Most became independent in the 1960s.

Interestingly, Ethiopia was independent in 1900, was captured by Italy in the Second World War, and is now independent again.

Had no idea for the forrestation, income and altitude ones. Could make some educated guesses, but it would really be more guesses than educated..

It is. The city has to *end* with an O, not start with an O.

Yeah, but it doesn't end in an ''O'' I guess you're thinking about that, right?

hey I just wanna say that Somalia has the largest coastline in Africa so therefore it should be in the quiz

Somalia just fails to make it at 2,440 km. It's got long coastlines but they're primarily straight and not curvy, meaning they account for less than they appear.

Where are you getting that number? I just did a quick search and everything I saw said Somalia’s coastline was >3000km. I know coastlines can be difficult to measure, depending on the length of measurement used, you could get wildly different answers.

Using JetPunk's own data, which Quizmaster believes to be the most accurate currently available online. See it here: Countries by Coastline. However, since this is so close to the cutoff, and other sources have it higher as well, I'll allow it as a typein.

Who else, when they got to "containing a 'W' in its name", took the ethically questionable approach of employing "Ctrl + F" to ease the task? :-P
