30/30. O... M... G! I thought I'd never get Lahore; who knows regions of Pakistan anyway? I tried so hard thinking of any name, and then I tried Punjab although I thought that would be wrong.

I felt that "Punjab" was fair game because (a) this is an English-speaking website, India and Pakistan are both English-speaking countries, and anyone who knows the geography of either will be able to name that region; (b) Punjabi cuisine, especially if you count chicken tikka masala, is now ubiquitous throughout the English-speaking world, so some people will have heard of it that way; and (c) the quiz quietly accepts "Mogul" as an alternate answer (much the way it accepts "Aragon" as an alternate answer for "Catalonia"), and the Mogul Empire was memorable enough in world history that the name "Mogul" entered the English language with the definition "a powerful person".

Because I live in Pernambuco, I can tell you definitively that this is false. There is a small town called "Buenos Aires" in the interior of Pernambuco, but it is in no way the capital.

The only problem is for people who know it as Czech Republic or Czechia and type the whole thing out, before realizing it accepted Czech. The people from the Czech Republic/Czechia are Czech, not the name of the country. It is like accepting Irish for Ireland or Chinese for China. If someone were to type in Czech, they would get it correct 99% of the time by typing the rest of the name.
