CDMX is an abbreviation for Mexico City. The answer in this quiz is the State of Mexico, which does not contain Mexico City.

Acceptable type-ins should perhaps include Estado de Mexico and Edomex?

Since it's just a transliteration, please accept "Baluchistan" instead of only accepting "Balochistan" (it's the same letter in Urdu/Arabic alphabet).

North-Rhine Westphalia is very often shortened to NRW. That would be a relieving type-in.

I really enjoyed this quiz. Well done on getting featured. I just think that 12 minutes is a bit short. Luckily I am a student of India (Asian studies), so I got many of them, but it's still tough with so little time.

Thanks

Amazing quiz as always but can I know the source of the population for the Indian States?

Because Wiki and Citypopulation states the population of WB is 91 million while some other sources says it's 99 million. Where did you got the 103 million from?

I used a 2021 population projection using the 2001 and 2011 census. It's not 100% accurate but it was the best that I could have gotten rather than using a 9 year outdated data.

Great, but could you loosen the spelling? I tried "Rio Grande del Sud" and did not get points for Brazil. Granted, I did not have it totally correct, but I would expect "Rio Grande" to be a sufficient type-in; usually quizzes try to minimize how much you need to type in other languages.

For the Philippines, could you accept Region 3 / Region III for Central Luzon, and Region 4-A / IV-A for Southern Tagalog Mainland? By the way, Calabarzon should be written there cause "Southern Tagalog Mainland" is obsolete. Nobody uses it here.
