Taking this again, I noticed "DC" and "Sucre" don't work. :)

Sucre works now, thanks. DC is the district where the capital, Washington, is located.

It's just that, if you're used to starting this quiz by typing "ottawa dc mexicocity"....

I just took a day trip to DC and I swear no one, visitors or locals, calls the place "Washington". It can pretty confusing with the state! What surprises me most, though, is that even though we were in the area, and everyone knew exactly which "Washington" was being talked about, everybody used the term "DC" or the rare "Washington, DC".
JetPunk is run by how the locals speak of a term. For example, Guatemala is accepted for Guatemala City because (according to Dan) people say "Guatemala" and rarely does one hear someone add the "city" part to it. 'The contrary, Panama City is only occasionally referred to by Panamanians. All I'm saying is you should add "DC" as a type-in. Simple as that. Don't even have to show it on the design!
Hope you take the suggestion,

I took them twice with both one mistake. I both missed Antananarivo and I dont know why. Then I noticed I kept on typing Antanarivo.

Wow, as of this posting, Ngerulmud is the only one under 50%. Koror would have been a lot easier to memorize - for the sake of quiz takers everywhere, maybe Palau can move it back? :)

Thanks for this quiz, so much harder without country prompts; forces visualisation. 186 as a first, strained attempt... will work hard on this!

I just checked googlemaps and it says Gitega is the capital. Try googling "Gitega new capital" and you'll see several other articles confirming this.
