Czech Republic? I know we typically use "Czechia", but its actual name is the Czech Republic.

Level 80
Nov 17, 2020
"Republic" has a "u."

Level 54
Jan 22, 2021
No, we didn't. The Government has adopted "Czechia" as an acceptable substitute to be used in official capacities, in the hopes of making the name more acceptable to tourists, but "Czech Republic" the proper, legal name.

I mean, the official name of many countries isn't what we use, do you say "United Kingdom" or "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland" for instance?

Togo's own website: https://www.republicoftogo.com/

But I take your point, and great idea for a quiz.

My favorite anti-whiner (whinger?) idea for a quiz.

Level 68
Jan 22, 2021
Fair criticism isn't whingeing. Quizzes about world history, for example, usually have more questions about the USA than any other country, even though it's a young nation with relatively little history to its name.

So where is the "Countries Free from The United Kingdom" quiz? The USA is not the only country in the world you know.
+9
Level 24
Nov 18, 2020
It says in the description of the quiz that this quiz was made because they find JetPunk to be too "U.S. centric", which quite frankly I agree with. I don't see half as many quizzes about the United Kingdom. If you want to make one, go ahead, though it wouldn't be as hard since not THAT many countries use the letter "K". Also, even if you did make a quiz like this but with the U.K., there aren't just two countries you know. ;) If you wanted this to be "fair" then we need 196 "Countries Free From X" quizzes.

Level 57
Nov 18, 2020
I made this quiz back in 2017, when I did not know much of JetPunk, so it wasn't made to make a point about US-Centric. It just took 3 years to catch the eye of QM and feature it :)

Just wondering, is the official name Cote d'Ivoire or Ivory Coast?
+1
Level 64
Nov 18, 2020
The official English name is Republic of Côte d'Ivoire.
+5
Level 89
Nov 18, 2020
Jetpunk officially uses Ivory Coast.
+4
Level 55
Dec 9, 2020
Even though they shouldn't because Ivory Coast has been asking to be called Cote d'Ivoire by everyone
+1
Level 67
Jan 22, 2021
@qatari a better phrase is jetpunk uses Ivory Coast. Using the word official in that sentence gives the false impression Ivory Coast is the official name (instead of Côte d'Ivoire.)

In all other quizzes referring to Africa you accept Congo so why not this one?
+2
Level 44
Jan 22, 2021
The quiz says it only uses official Jetpunk English names. Just like how on most quizzes, UK is accepted for United Kingdom or Czechia is accepted for Czech Republic, Congo is accepted for both the Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but Congo is not the official Jetpunk English name for either of those countries.

It was harder than it looked and missed Montenegro like most people. I cannot believe how many people have queried why certain countries have been omitted from the list despite clearly having either a U, S or A in them. I couldn't understand why a couple of my efforts were not accepted but realised that I must have been wrong, which I was

What I liked about this quiz is it was a fun way to acknowledge that many feel JetPunk is too US centric.Love Jetpunk but this is true. Sport is a particularly frustrating section as nobody outside the US has any idea about the NBA, NFL, Baseball. Still the best quiz site out there though.

As for the quiz itself, a good idea but a lot of flaws as already pointed out.
