If you Google "countries with no income tax," you will probably see some lists that include Andorra. Andorra used to have no income tax, but they established one in the 2010s.

Great quiz- I really love these. A note on Marx- he lived in Brussels, Paris, Cologne and London, the latter for the longest time, so maybe the question needs to be more specific.

More specific how? Only one of the 4 countries containing those cities is still available by the time you get to that question.

Maybe come up with a different clue for Ireland. It won't be long before it's incorrect. Catholicism is rapidly on the decline in Ireland and the church nowhere near as popular as it once was.

Looks like there's a census coming for Ireland in 2022 (was supposed to be in 2021 but got delayed due to you-know-what). If that census shows Catholics are no longer the majority, I'll change the question. I would be surprised if it happens, though; that would be a pretty sharp drop from 78% in the last census only 5 years ago.

How does Poland have multiple cities with over 1 million inhabitants? As a Pole I can assure you that it's only Warsaw - the second biggest city, Krakow, is estimated to have 850 thousand inhabitants.

"Any reference to city population refers to urban agglomeration population according to citypopulation.de"--citypop has both Warsaw and Katowice at over 2,000,000 for urban agglomeration population.

that is a lie. City of Katowice has around 370k. Katowice + other cities around that city (for example Chorzów, Sosnowiec, Zabrze, Rybnik, Gliwice and many more) add up to this 2 milion. How can you count population of mulitiple cities as population of one city?

From the CityPop glossary: "(Urban) agglomerations and metropolitan areas include a central city and neighboring towns (suburbs) forming a connected region of dense, predominately urban population. Their population is economically and culturally linked to the central city (e.g., by commuters)." The Katowice urban area seems to fit that definition to me.

If I find time to look into it, I'll consider changing it, but the current clue seems correct to me.

So you have to change it from "multiple cities" to "multiple agglomerations" because now it's false. The caveat is not enough.

If you're counting urban area and not city proper, Greece has multiple 1m+ cities too.

Great quiz, but my ipad doesn't like the settings for some reason I have to scroll up and down to see each question and type my answer. Bloody frustrating as you waste more time doing that than answering.
