This quiz should have been named "The longest normal names of countries" instead of "The longest OFFICIAL names of countries" then. This quiz maker is absolutely ridiculous and just tells all critics to "go pound sand" when the quiz is quite contradicting. What a joke.

Then why is USA required on the official Jetpunk quiz, and not just US? Seems inconsistent to me. (I don't have any sand, will rocks do?)

When did the "A" in USA become optional or obsolete? Can we similarly contract United Arab Emirates to just United Arab, just because we can? If so, would be no less arbitrary of a decision.

Conversational contractions and actual names of countries are very different things. All sorts of shortened words and phrases exist in conversations because it's quicker and easier. I'm from Australian and nobody round here says Papua New Guinea in conversation it's always PNG. That doesn't mean the name of the country has changed, it's just a conversational language choice to say it faster. For the record, when I flew to Hawaii last year I told friends/family that I was going to the USA, because it is the actual name of the country and it's faster to say (three syllables) than either United States (four) or United States of America.(nine).

No one would say "I will fly to the United Arab Emirates" or to "the Federated States of Micronesia" either. It would always be to "the emirates" or "to Micronesia". The test is inconsistent as it stands.

Some of the names don't make sense. If Congo is the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Brazil should be the Federative Republic of Brazil.

The two Congos have to differentiate, so Republic of the Congo is actually the short form, as just Congo doesn't work.

If you include the full name of DRC and RC, you should also include the full name of the USA and that is longer than the UAE
