日本 can be both Nihon and Nippon. I deliberately chose the less known one. >:D

Great quiz! I thought this was going to be impossible, assuming that what we were going to be required to do was type in the official name based on the colloquial English one... but, going in reverse I found it to be quite easy. Given another minute or two I think I would have gotten 100%. As is I only missed Estonia and Croatia. I should have gotten Croatia! I found out doing research for my common surnames 2 quiz that Horvat is the most common last name in Croatia, and it basically means "person from Croatia."

Excellent quiz! I only missed Jordan. Arabic names are cool but rather too complicated.
