I like these kinds of quizzes a lot not just to test myself and learn new information, but also to see what other people know.

If you’re wondering how to get 100%, here’s the trick. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:First-level_administrative_country_subdivisions Just find each country and it flies by in no time (alright maybe some time)...

Do People Cheat?
Probably, but they're really only cheating themselves.

It would be easier to cheat by splitting your screen, showing the answers on one window by clicking give up immediately and then typing those answers in on the second window

Does Rapa Nui (Isla de Pascua, Easter Island) belong in this quiz too? Think it might if Galapagos Islands and Falklands Islands are being included. It wasn't included in the Oceania quiz from this series. Also, what continent is South Georgia considered to be part of?
+1

Easter Island is part of Valparaíso Region, South Georgia is not permanently inhabited.

Hi, when you type in Misiones, it considers the Argentinian one but not the Paraguayan one.

The issue is when you type Missiones. For some reason it works for Argentina, but not Paraguay.

Maybe its just me, but the type-ins on this quiz seem very unforgiving compared to other continents/individual country subdivision quizzes.
