I dispute Libya. Granted, I am looking at 1 July 2013 estimates in Wiki, but Laos (6.581M) has almost 400k more people than Libya (6.202M). I just don't believe that the populations of two relatively small (population) countries would swing so much in just one year. Even if one were to suppose that Libya's population is dropping fast after its revolution, it was 6.469M one year ago according to the author, Laos was surely already over 6.5M with a relatively stable political situation.

Estimates can change quickly. Some countries don't have reliable censuses. I'm sure the quiz was correct at the time it was written. In any case, I've updated the quiz with newer numbers.

The only country that I could find that has "THE" as the official name of the country is "The Gambia". I believe there may be one other but all the rest are just the way we say the name of that country like The Netherland, The Bahama, The USA, etc.

Why give us DRC? Is it to stop complaints that DRC shouldn't count as a country beginning with D? Then to keep it consistent, you should give us DRC as an answer on this quiz: http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/22850/largest-countries-by-letter, on this quiz: http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/28954/southernmost-countries-a-z and on this quiz: http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/28954/border-countries-a-z

It may just be me but I hate it when some answers are filled in for us. Let us guess it or not but at least we've had the opportunity to give it a shot. And for those who would complain, they're going to complain anyway, so don't coddle them. Besides, the Countries of the World Quiz gives us the accepted common names used on JetPunk for every country so no one can claim to be surprised. Anyone unable to get the answer for D just hasn't been paying attention!

53 seconds time left over, no idea if there was any added or not. I don't think you should have time to go over all countries and continents in your head, the idea is to *know* which ones are big, not to try all possible countries. With too much time it reduces all country quizzes to the same thing: list countries and hope you hit the right answers.
