Great quiz! Strange that Nigeria has the second most violent persecution of Christians considering half the country is Christian.

I was really surprised about that too, I guess it just depends on the region of Nigeria

Northern Nigeria is under Sharia law. Sadly, targeted mass killings of Christians there don't seem to get the attention in the west that they should. Boko Haram is a serious problem.

Yeah, I thought that was strange but I suppose if you focus on the northern, Muslim-majority part of Nigeria that might make sense. What confuses me more that the source says Colombia, a country where Catholicism is dominant, is the 6th most violent country for Christians. I'm guessing that maybe it has something to do with Protestants being persecuted? But I also know nothing about religion in Colombia so if anyone has an explanation please let me know.

As far as I can tell it's not sectarian. It's criminal groups who don't like christian messages which oppose their criminal activities.

Greatest human exposure to air pollution - I'm assuming that's on a percentage basis, with Qatar on the list, but China not.

Somehow I got stuck thinking all the answers needed to be an african country. I did get unstuck, but nearly got stuck again. Wasted too much time by then. Still managed to get all but 4 but could have done better.

Edit: all of which btw did have atleast one african answer, but had lost too much time allready. Not the first time this happened in a quiz like this, getting stuck thinking it has to meet certain extra requirements it actually doesn't.

Good quiz

Is Italy correct for having a capital with a higher urban area population than Egypt? Not sure what the source is but it doesn't seem right.

I was kind of disappointed when Tokyo worked for "capital with the highest urban area population". It's supposed to be a "Name the country" quiz... (Yes, I'm complaining about a freebie. I prefer earning my right answers, whether than them being handed to me.)

We accept Tokyo because many people think those questions are looking for the city, not the country

ARGH! I thought the Libya flag was under 33% black because the middle section has the Islamic moon and star, but the area of the middle is slightly larger than other flags.
