It's virtually impossible to do all the world's countries in 4 minutes. And it makes it more difficult to suddenly think of them alphabetically unless that's the way you learned them in the first place. I learned them by continent and smaller geographical groups.

@RPHXX, Except that you have to delete (backspace) every incorrect answer. So even people who could type all countries in 4 minutes would find it extremely difficult if not impossible to type all countries and finish this quiz.

You don't have to delete wrong answers with backspace. Just hit CTRL-A or COMMAND-A to select all. Your wrong answer will be highlighted and the next letter you type will replace it.

Dec 10, 2014
There are two "Congo" countries (Democratic Republic of the Congo and Republic of the Congo), so we had to distinct them by using their official names. Here, we only refer to the People's Republic of China as "China" since it is the only country using "China" as part of its common name (the Republic of China is referred to as "Taiwan").

I think it is just because we think of Latin America as a smaller place since so much happens in Europe and Europe is so densely populated. Another thing is the Central American countries are small relative to the monsters of Canada, USA, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, And Brazil, also Colombia and Venezuela. Also our one story view of poverty in these countries makes us look at them as smaller in size too.

Which makes it all the more puzzling why the quizmaster had to specifically designate Greenland as an "overseas territory" which is just plain wrong. Denmark is constitutionally defined as a unitary state that just has devolved powers to two parts of it (Greenland and the Faroe Islands). Not counting Greenland as part of Denmark is similar to not counting Scotland as pat of the UK because it has autonomy. Granted, Greenland has slightly more autonomy than Scotland, but not much, and the constitutional situation is similar. Just let people type in Denmark if they don't know the DRC is bigger, no need for including it in "overseas territories".

So, the situation is not the same, because there is Democratic Republic of the Congo and there is Republic of Congo, but China, is like South Korea because even though the full name is Republic of South Korea we count it as "S".

Dem. Rep. of the Congo is unfair. I was bashing my head thinking of a country that actually starts with D. Why is Kazakhstan under K? It's official name is "Republic of Kazakhstan" let's be fair.
+1
level 80
Mar 28, 2017
So by that logic, Australia starts with C, Brazil, Ethiopia, and Germany start with F, Honduras, India, Kazakhstan, Niger, Peru, Yemen, and Zambia start with R, Libya, Oman, and Qatar start with S, Mexico and Tanzania start with U, Saudi Arabia starts with K, and Venezuela starts with B. Yeah, makes sense to do it that way.

JetPunk logic: There are two "Congo" countries (Democratic Republic of the Congo and Republic of the Congo), so we had to distinct them by using their official names. Here, we only refer to the People's Republic of China as "China" since it is the only country using "China" as part of its common name (the Republic of China is already referred to as "Taiwan").

May 15, 2019
"The" is not part of the official name of the United States. A closer parallel would be filing South Korea under "R," Mexico under "U," China under "P," or North Korea under "D." But as there are two Congos they do it to differentiate the two.

Missed Niger and Saudi Arabia. Now that I think about it, those two should have been more obvious, because Norway, Nigeria, and Nicaragua are all smaller than Niger by a long way (but what about Namibia?) and Sweden and South Africa are likewise smaller than Saudi Arabia. I was surprised that Hungary is smaller than Honduras!
