If you know all the capitals of all countries recognised by jetpunk, it's quite an easy starter. Lots of jetpunk quizzers know this stuff.

Same. Even though it's pretty accurate, I was hoping it wouldn't be accepted. I'd rather not get the point than have it refered to as being made from mud.

I think "Greenwich" should be considered for the Prime Meridian. There are even multiple prime meridians on Earth, not just the GMT one.

This quiz was much to easy. Having all the neighbouring states be asked and then ask things like Sahara and Sahel, which seem to be a part of the "JetPunk-Basic-Knowledge-Starter-Pack" doesn't leave much room for in depth questions on Mali.
