Yeah, me too. Seems a bit hardh not to allow the abbreviated form, given that's how they are commonly known. At least a line in the intro saying only full names would be accepted.

I'm not so sure. We do ask for the first two letters of each country, rather than the first two letters of any abbreviation it might have.

Excellent quiz! - Please leave Cyprus where it is as that's where it belongs. Also, the common use of abbreviations should not alter the FACT that the UAE begins with Un(ited) Arab Emirates. I am so weary of lazy people who just can't be bothered to learn! Is it any wonder that our schools are graduating a generation of the "truly lost".

Needed to be quicker, but what is Cyprus doing in there?

level 72
Jun 10, 2017
By virtue of its geographical location; its closest neighbors are Asian Turkey, Syria and Lebanon, and of course Northern Cyprus is very Turkish-aligned. Continental boundaries are pretty arbitrary, they aren't subject to agreements of countries in the same way that national borders are, so there's no "right" answer to that one. You could just as easily include Cyprus in Europe by virtue of its membership of the euro, European Union, and general historic ties.
