I found this to be much quicker than the Asian version, without studiously counting, I think there may be more double ups of first two letters.

Western Sahara is not Morocco. Free Western Sahara, the last colony of Africa illegally occupied by Morocco. Viva Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic!

We couldn't agree more. Hopefully soon Western Sahara will be added to the Countries of the World quiz and everywhere else, but for now, Dan likes featured all geography quizzes to have the same country answers and he doesn't use Western Sahara as a country answer. His published benchmark is that if a country is occupied then it ceases to be a country, but if it "controls" its own borders then it counts as a country. Western Sahara, controlling as it does about 25% of its territory to the east of the ceasefire line, qualifies in the same way as Georgia and Cyprus do. (On the other hand, Liechtenstein and Monaco do not control their own borders either - Switzerland and France could wander in and take over any time they feel like it - but that's another story). By the way, not one country has recognised Morocco's annexation of Western Sahara.

Why is "Sao Tome et Principe" out of alphabetical order?
+1
level 49
Mar 28, 2019
Possibly because it starts with "sã". And if I understood well, letters with diacritics come after "u" in the alphabetical order

Wow. Great quiz, didn't expect to be able to finish it. I feel dumb though; I already did Lesotho and kept typing "LE" for Rwanda and wondering why it wasn't working. Got them with 1 second left.

Surprised myself there, got 46, without looking at the list :)

Once the time started I freaked out though and started randomnly spilling out countries haha, while my plain was to do it neat and in order, total panic... so with that I am very happy with 46 as my first go :) (let's see how many takes it takes. 5 maybe? or there could be that one that allways escapes your attention (and then alternates that role with other countries..)

It went 50,53,51,47,54. Something had broken my concentration after the 53 one and it was hard to get back. But yay :)
