I'm not going to lie, for the Olympic medals, I typed all the numbers from one to eighty until I realised I should have probably tried zero first.

I loved that question, even if it's not exactly nice to Andorra... :-D

You could also ask: number of oceans Andorra has access to, or number of Nobel prizes, or number of astronauts.

Why would they do that? French is not an official language in Andorra and this is an English quiz

I'm curious, what did you tried? I know of ski and island resorts, and it's obviously not the latter.

Aaron is there a reason you haven't done a quiz about Belgium yet? I'm assuming you accidentally skipped it over.

I'm sorry Quizmaster if I shouldn't have marked this comment as "containing a correction or suggestion" but I would like to bring this to the attention of Aaron and I don't know how else I can do it :)

I'm not sure if I understand you, but if you're asking for a "Belgium Country Quiz", well there already is one featured made by alberici. But I generally have made quizzes about Belgium.

I guess this has been debated elsewhere and at length, but I'm still not entirely convinced that Catalan is a language, rather than a dialect of Spanish, but since Andorra explicit considers Catalan its official language, I understand why the quiz wouldn't accept Spanish as an answer.

Just wanted to say: you ain't foolin' noone, Andorra!

They're pretty similar yes. As a Spanish speaker I can read Catalan without too many problems, although there are some weird words/usages here and there. I found it impossible to understand people speaking in Catalan when I was in Barcelona though.

Catalan speakers usually find it easier to learn English than Spanish speakers, because Catalan has a wider range of vowel sounds than Spanish - not as many as English but way more than the very few that Spanish has. So pronunciation-wise it's a big difference.

Catalan is way closer to Occitan (romance dialects of southern France) than to standard Spanish (also known as castellano => originally the dialect spoken in Castile).

La parla catalana té trets propers a la dels espanyols car ambdues surten del llatí, hi és si fa no fa tan pareguda com ho pot ésser al gallec, el francès, àdhuc el romanès i en tot cas menys que l'occità i el piemontès. Car a eixes dues llengües sí que s'hi assembla força.

The words 'language' and 'dialect' can be as much of a political designation as a linguistic one

Gave up with 1:45 left on the clock and 14/15 answers gotten, then I thought "Wait, is it bishop of ____" right as I clicked Give Up. Whoops. This is why you be patient, people.

I've always found it funny that the President of France is randomly a Prince of Andorra too.
