Nice quiz. Jandals took a while to think of the American name, but otherwise pretty straightforward. A lot of Kiwis would probably struggle for some of these like Tokelau too, it's good that you included those.

Thanks! I‘ve spent a lot of time informing myself about New Zealand! Because jandals are called flip flops in America, Canada and the UK I thought Kiwis might know this expression. Do you always call them jandals and have never heard the term ‚flip-flops‘, dear Kiwis?

Say "flip flop" to a Kiwi and they'll think it means changing your mind. If you point to footwear and say "flip flop", they might just understand what you're trying to say, but we never use that term here..

Oceania is NOT a continent, it is just a region of the Pacific. Also, NZ technically IS on a continent called Zealandia which is mostly underwater :)
