That quiz requires less than answering all 196 countries though because, for example, "USA" gets 85/1,121 answers and so forth. So this one definitely kicks that one. I don't know how many duplicates work on this quiz, but obviously it's not a lot.
Very, very interesting quiz anyway.

Actually, the first-level subdivisions in England are the counties. England doesn't get administered at all as a single entity - it's covered first by the UK, then by the counties. (Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales all have their own parliaments, so I'd agree that those three countries are indeed fist-level subdivisions.)

You can type "Reykjavik" and it works as a type in for this one subdivision

Höfuðborgarsvæði just means "capital city region" in Icelandic, so if you type Reykjavík you get credit for it.

Head-borough-something. Can't think of a cognate for the last bit.

Edit: Turns out, after doing some digging, the closest related english word is swath(e).


I would not have come up with that last one without some research, English isn't my first language so it wasn't one of the first things I thought about. (my initial thought was more; things meaning to separate. Many words having to do with splitting and cutting ultimately come from the same root. Though usually they have an sk sound at the beginning (though in English not always)

Also thought of dividing in two, zweiteilen/zweiteilung (German), tweedeling (Dutch), the first part sounding close. But obviously the wrong route :)

Amazing quiz! I imagine this took a while to make. I'd love some more consistency in which languages are accepted though, and stuff like north vs northern etc. Maybe try to accept both the local names and english names where applicable? It seems like only the English names are accepted in some places and only the local one in others. And it's a bit frustrating when some places require you to type "north something" and others "northern something" (same with all the other points of compass). Might be good to also accept e.g. Belgrade and Beograd for City of Belgrade. Thanks again for the quiz!

In Macedonia (and I guess Latvia) and e.g. also Slovenia these are simply municipalities, not much different than in other countries, but small countries don't really need an intermediate division between national and local level. Or to be precise, there usually is, but only for specific purposes (statistics, courts etc), not with the whole government apparatus.

The letter for "ð" is not "o", but it is "d" (the uppercase version of ð is Ð), but with people being confused (your comment) of which letter it is, I accepted so that any letter can be accepted for it (the same thing I did with the letter "Þ", which is the letters "th")

Dec 7, 2019
Harder is not better. Sorry but I consider the municipalities of Slovenia as totally useless knowledge. Even for Slovenians it's useless to know them all. Do you think I know all the communes of Belgium? I don't. There are much more interesting things to study. What's wrong with me may be that I have varied interests and tastes and that I don't find funny to memorize tens of thousands of insignificant locations. So yes, the design may be nice and praiseworthy, but I think it's not an interesting list to know.

Jul 2, 2020
A lot ending in -hreppur (meaning county I believe) so I guess you would only have to remember Árnes. And if you are from (or have been to) Iceland that is not to hard I guess. And Arne is also not an uncommon first name in scandinavia, that would help. (árn means eagle I think)

I chose them (and also Gibraltar) to be part of the United Kingdom because:
  1. They aren't independent countries.

I know you've probably heard this a lot, but is there any way to shorten some answers? This would only be for countries with many regions, though. I had the regions for Iceland, Latvia, Russia, and Slovenia in a notes document, and even using copy and paste it took 15+ minutes to do all of them! This obviously makes it very hard to get even close to 100%, which is my ultimate goal. I think one possible short-cut is scrapping the 'reppur' for iceland and replacing it with 'r' or similar.

WTH? a country made up of 5 words?? couldnt they just pick one? (Yes I know, UK has more, but many people, outside of jetpunk I mean, wouldn't know or be able to reproduce the entire thing)
