Interesting wee quiz! N comes before P though, and Guinea-Bissau has a hyphen

@Shade9099 you are probably wondering why I am featuring this quiz and not yours with the same name. The reason is that this one is 6 years older, having been first submitted in 2012.

Nice mini-quiz! I wonder if less people got Guinea-Bissau because the U at the end of that is pronounced like an O or Ow, while in all the others it’s a clear U? Sorry, it’s my linguist brain haha ;)

Yeah this quiz is definitely twisty since these countries don't all rhyme!

I think it's mostly because Africa has way more countries than Oceania or South America, and "Guinea-Bissau" is probably not one of the ones that jumps to mind first.

For me personally Guinea-Bissau didn't jump out at me because it never crossed my mind. I was going through the country and verbally saying the countries I came across and kept stumbling on ones that ended in "-ia". It was easier getting the other 5 because both Oceania and South America don't have many countries. Africa has over 3x as many countries.

Missed Tuvalu. Kept typing "Tokelau" a bunch of different ways before I realised it.

They have a good change of winning percentage of countries countries with a's and u's. (48 countries containing an a ánd u, yes I counted ;) hope I didn't miss any) 6/14 have a's and u's in Oceania, nearly half.

Europe has 6 aswell but 45 countries, north america has 8/23 only 7/48 for asia, but south america actually wins with 6/12. Africa has 15 but out of a total of 54.

Interesting how 3 of the continents have 6 countries with a's and u's. (6,6,6,7,8,15 ok that's enough numbers for today, I'll spare you the actuall %)

I got the Oceania and South America countries in the first 10 seconds and spent the rest of the time trying to think of Guinea-Bissau

Good thing there were categories. I made it with a minute left, without the categories I think I would only have gotten one country. And that has nothing to do with the obscurity of oceania or something, but due to the fact I would start to try and think of all the countries at once and my brain would be overloaded, and then I would see the time tick and wouldnt be able to think at all.
