Countries Forgotten With an Empty Map

I ranked all the countries by percent guessed in the original Countries of the World Map and compared it to the rankings on my Empty Map version. Guess which countries saw their rankings fall the most, i.e. the countries that people forget when they played the empty map version.

I typed it because I thought of Greenland, but I meant Denmark. Not sure why so many people forgot it in the blank map quiz though.

Iceland is far away from Europe, while Madagascar isn't the focus of Africa. aBut then again, how do people remember Seychelles, Comoros, and Mauritius, and remembering the Maldives but not Sri Lanka?

Yes, it is by the drop in percentage once the map is taken away, not the actual percentage on the quiz without a map.

A majority of quiz takers forget the Netherlands, Vietnam and Cuba?

But they remember Benin, Chad, Kosovo, South Sudan and Eritrea? Amazing!!!!

This is because it's easier to miss coast countries or islands when you have an empty map, if there's a gaping hole in the middle of a continent you can tell that there's a country missing most of the time. Personally I tend to miss countries like Chile because you don't really see that it's missing

Benin, Chad, Kosovo, South Sudan and Eritrea don't have very high percentages in the original Countries of the World Quiz.

Funny to see/think about which countries are the most forgotten of the forgotten countries and who are the least forgotten.

surprised to see the netherlands and ireland, who doesnt type ireland after they did the uk?

besides those two I missed lebanon and liberia, Indeed I forget about liberia in empty map quiz, but lebanon is paired with jordan and israel for me. Hardly ever miss/get one without the others. (have many things in pairs, not on purpose, it is just how they stay in my head. Liek I allways do, estonia lativa lithuania, and hungary, bulgaria, romania,. And obviously norway sweden finland, but I think most do.)

No. Liechtenstein and those other countries have low scores to begin with, so the drop isn't as significant.

The quiz isn't about the most obscure ones, it's about the countries with the highest changes in a percentage, between the countries of the world with a world map, and countries of the world without a map.

You don't understand. This quiz isn't the most obscure ones, it's about the ones that are forgotten most, without a map. Without a map, it's the islands that are gonna be the hardest to remember.

People probably miss Vietnam a lot because Vietnam is so thin.
