I know it’s Vatican City but I said Vatican anyway just in case. Some quizzes on this website accept it as the name of the country. Fun.

They accept it as a type-in but in a quiz like this you need to use the correct name. So the quizmaker is correct.

It would be like accepting Edinburgh on a quiz for cities ending in g, (well it is worse than than, because "The Vactican" is actually something in its own right and has a different meaning from Vatican City)
