This quiz is great, Jerry!! I'm surprised V got up to 7 letters; every other letter stops by 6! And in case anyone is wondering, the shortest answer on the longest country names a-z quiz is, of course, Oman :)

In all Jetpunk quizzes that I have done, including countries of the world, Burma and Myanmar are mutually acceptable. I think its one of the Jetpunk rules. Therefore Burma should be accepted here

Level 47
Mar 21, 2017
That simply isn't true. Burma is accepted as a type-in but never as the legitimate answer.
+2
Level 48

Burma WAS the legitimate answer while Myanmar was just a type-in, until the Quizmaster changed his mind and swap their roles.

Great quiz, however I think it would be even better without the amount of letters shown in the answer. So, if I type in Libya and it isn't accepted, then I know there must be a 4 letter answer.

It's technically a country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands but it's not independent therefore isn't an acceptable Jetpunk answer, similar to Scotland's relationship with the UK.

Geodude, I advise you change your name.. ;) It actually is a country, one of the 4 countries that makes up the Kingdom of the Netherlands (one of the others is the country the Netherlands.

It has its own constitution, government, prime minister and ministers and elections. It is not part of the Netherlands and therefore not a member of the EU. Defense ís handled by the Kingdom (as is the case for all the constituent countries, including the Netherlands), but they are internally autonomous.

like mentioned before The Vatican = the holy see, not a country but like the governing body of the catholic church

( hard to explain in a different language while not being catholic, but I think I phrased that correctly. In layman's terms, "something churchy" ;) )

Kenya somehow was slightly tougher, because everything that is a K in my language becomes a C in english, so it is harder to spring to mind. Got it fast this time though, but I remember another time I had a hard time coming up with it (might be this quiz or another that gave the first letter). Egypt is indeed very surprising, one of the easier ones for me.
