Awesome quiz! Some suggestions in case they are helpful:

Some of the missing countries have data on citypopulation:

Paraguay: Asunción, Ciudad del Este, San Lorenzo, Luque, Capiatá

Peru: Lima, Arequipa, Trujillo, Chiclayo, Piura

Syria: Aleppo, Damascus, Homs, Latakia, Hama

Maybe you don't want to mix sources but worldpopulationreview.com has the other countries:

Burundi: Bujumbura, Muyinga, Ruyigi, Gitega, Ngozi

Panama: Panama City, San Miguelito, Tocumen, David, Las Cumbres

Qatar: Doha, Ar Rayyan, Umm Salal Muhammad, Al Wakrah, Al Khawr

I might be wrong but for China I think you've listed provinces. I believe the cities should be Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzen, Tianjin, according to citypopulation

Perhaps use Seville for Sevilla (as with Naples not Napoli) and allow Belize as a type-in for Belize City (as with Mexico, Kuwait). Also, maybe use the modern name Nur-Sultan for Astana.

Anyway, just suggestions! Again, great quiz!

Firstly: Wow, thanks for all that feedback.

Secondly: Burundi, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Qatar and Syria has been added

Thirdly: China, Seville and Belize City has been fixed

Fourthly: I am aware of Nur-Sultan, but as Quizmaster said "we're not in a rush to bend over backwards because of some third world despot."

You're welcome :) Happy to make a small contribution to a great quiz. Don't know if you saw but apparently Quizmaster has finally relented and bent over backwards... All Hail Nursultan! (Not saying you need to change it, just found it amusing).

Some pretty restrictive rulings on names, particularly Arabic transliterations. Also note in Czechia Pilsen is the German name - the Czech name, which is more widely used, is Plzen.

Thanks for the Plzen mistake. Which city/towns do you think were too strict?

Thanks! Another, smaller correction in the same vein: the Ukrainian city is officially known as 'Dnipro' now (though of course Dnepropetrovsk should still be accepted...) Also Cyprus: Limassol

Ones I thought might be relaxed a bit: Argentina: Tucuman, Azerbaijan: Sumgait; Bulgaria: Ruse; Cambodia: Siem Reap; Iran: Mashhad; Iraq: Erbil (I know Kurdistan a bit so knew its alternative names like Arbil and Hawler). I used all these fairly standard transliterations/ versions and got knocked back.

There's another issue with large metro areas, to which there's no ideal solution. For Oman you've used the constituent bits of Muscat metro area, while for other countries (Taiwan, Philippines) it's the whole city rather than the very large component parts, some of which are larger than the 'core' city (New Taipei, Quezon City).

There's also one area not covered - Palestinian Territories. It's probably doable without starting arguments about the status of Jerusalem!

(concludes)

Here's one definition for Palestine http://worldpopulationreview.com/countries/palestine-population/cities/ but I've seen much higher figures for Gaza city and Israel also claims East Jerusalem.

You've done an amazing job on this quiz! You've put a lot of effort in and it's interesting and challenging. It's told me some stuff I didn't know (for instance, I'm sure most non-Sri Lankans like me would be surprised that Kandy, the non-Colombo city most of us have heard of, is smaller than several others!).

Thanks and appreciation to you.

Ok, everything is added except Palestine. The reason Palestine isn't add is because of Jetpunk Standers doesn't include Palestine

Hey! I love this quiz, except maybe accept Almaty instead of Alma-Ata? Its the generally accepted name, very entertaining otherwise :)

You should accept Karagandy for Qaraģandy, its also an accepted spelling
