Singapore is in the top 10 in HDI, so there isn't a unique answer to the HDI question.

Fantastic series! Just to clarify things for me, Qatar's maroon flag is considered red?

Level 83

Yes, I consider maroon to be a shade of red. I figured there would probably be arguments no matter which way I went on that one, but counting it as red feels more right to me.

These are good suggestions. I've thought about adding maps to my quizzes previously, but I have never done so. Hopefully one of these days I will stop being lazy and spend some time figuring out how it works.

This is a great idea. Bahrain stumped me as I couldn't see it, luckily it was near the end so I managed the rest of the answers and came back to it. Thanks for making it!

Great Quiz! Couldn't Taiwan count as one of the founding members of the U.N since the Republic of China was one of the original members before being succeeded by the P.R.C?

Also, how do you classify a rainforest? I think you could argue some countries (Laos, Vietnam, etc.) have rainforests.

It's been a while, but I *think* "rainforest" was based on this map, which was the source for the "Tropical Rainforest Countries" quiz.

Addressed the issues raised by WolfCam and FactoFanatic (thanks for the feedback!). Fixing Syria was a big pain (thanks a lot, Man Assad!), but I got it eventually. Also adjusted one or two other clues that were somewhat questionable in the process.

For the future you need to think of other clues for China and South Korea. Maybe switch the positions and do "that has a city which hosted both summer and winter olympics" and then "which hosted both summer and winter olympics".

Yup, I'm aware. I'll cross that bridge when we come to it. At this point a cancellation/rescheduling of the 2022 Winter Olympics seems unlikely, but I'm not sure we can take anything for granted at this point.
