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

That simply isn't true. Burma is accepted as a type-in but never as the legitimate answer.
+1

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.
