Good fun! I think you should allow for Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, and Saba as type'ins for Caribbean Netherlands. Also, I'd add a few type-in so you don't have to type islands every time.

OK - Saba, Sint Eustatius and Bonaire have been added as type-ins for Caribbean Netherlands, and you don't have to type "Islands" anywhere any more.

I agree with top comment, I kept trying saba and bonaire and sint eustatius thinking I had spelled them wrong. Also could you accept just Falklands and Turks and Caicos. Good Quiz!

How about accepting "American Virgin Islands" for "US Virgin Islands"?
+1
Level 74
Dec 7, 2014
I'd never heard of that, and have just done quite a through online search and everywhere it's US Virgin Islands. Do you have any inside knowledge you can share on that one?
+3
Level 64
Apr 2, 2016
Mainly in Spanish because we say "Islas Virgenes Americanas", which means American Virgin Islands, if translated to English, literally, but in the English language, then I don't think so.

Virgin Islands are also commonly known as British Virgin Islands, just fyi.

D'Oh! I'd assumed they were the US Virgin Islands and wondered why BVI nor British Virgin Islands worked - assumed they were beyond the 242!

When I started I was thinking more along the lines of places like Transnistria, South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Tibet. But good quiz! :-)

Level 69
Mar 5, 2016
Right. The list is taken directly from a source, so this is not a criticism of the quiz or its maker, but probably none of these has the autonomy of Somaliland (25 years of effective independence), for instance. It's mostly a list of colonial holdovers.

If you are going to go off of citypopulation.de as closely as you are, where are Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and Akrotiri and Dhekelia?

Neither are in www.citypopulation.de's 242! Maybe a fourth-tier quiz Countries 243 to whatever is starting to emerge here?
+1
Level 80
Sep 7, 2015
The Islamic State enjoys greater autonomy and sovereignty than any of these. Also what about Puntland, Somaliland, Abkazhia, South Ossetia, Northern Cyprus, Chechnya, Adjara, etc... some of those also have a lot more sovereignty and independence than, say, Puerto Rico.

Svalbard does not appear as nation at citypopulation.de. It's an integrated part of Norway.

Jul 28, 2020
Yes it does - we just re-checked, and it's still there.

Level 77
Jul 28, 2020
I've tried to find which part of citypopulations.de you're talking about but failed. Looking by continent, some are there, some aren't. Typing in the search field, Christmas, Cocos and Norfolk are missing, but Jan Mayen, Northern Cyprus, Akrotiri&Dhekelia and Antarctica are there.

It is (like Bonaire and st Eustatius) an integral part of the Netherlands. They voted to be less independent instead of more. It is now considered a special municipality of (the country) the Netherlands.

Unlike Curaçao, Aruba and Sint Maarten, which are countries of the Kingdom the Netherlands (together with the country the Netherlands, which is the only one of the 4 to be considered sovereign)

It's been moved to the Countries 197 to 205 quiz - its international recognition level is enough to promote it to that one!
+2
Level 70
Apr 8, 2017
not really countries, more a list of the more important dependant territories. No way will Svalbard ever be independent for example, while some of them might be one day. Why Christmas island and not Easter Island? Most of the states of limited recognition - Transnistria, Turk Rep of N Cyprus, Somaliland etc - have greater effective sovereignty than the place on this quiz, And finally, Norfolk Island is no longer even self-governing, it has been absorbed into Australia proper.

But it's spelled Guyane in french. So is the difference really that important ?
+1
Level 31
Dec 26, 2019
English is probably the only language, that spells it with "I". Native French, as well as for example Spanish or German use "Y" instead. So I also think it might be accepted.
+1
Level 74
Dec 27, 2019
English, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Russian use "I" (Russian uses "И" to be exact); French, Dutch and Spanish use "Y"; Polish and Estonian use "J".

Apr 19, 2020
It is an interesting distinction. Not the usual romance/germanic language split. The word(s) has a long history
+1
Level 77
Jul 28, 2020
I think it's more relevant to note which languages use different spellings for Guyana/Guiana.

Dec 17, 2018
Amazed at the small amount of comments here. I was expecting a world of angry comments frustrated people and hatefull messages. Quite refreshing (as in other threads, there only has to be one controversial country and there is a 150 messages long argument only about that "country" and only a few messages about the rest of the quiz)

Where would Catalonia fall under these categories? I know with the attempts to vote for independence it sees itself as a stand alone country from Spain, but until that happens will it just be completely undisputed and unrecognized?

That doesn't appear at citypopulation.de yet, so wouldn't qualify for this quiz. But good point though, and we've added it to the Countries 243 to 250 quiz.

I think this is easier when you are form the UK, US or France. But atleast this time I got 14 and was about to type svalbard, I saw last time I got 2 haha (can't remember it, but got isle of Man I have always found that an insteresting case)

I'm surprised that you haven't included Somaliland, despite the fact that it's probably the only part of Somalia that has a functional government

No "Anguila" for Anguilla?
+1
Level 65
Jul 17, 2020
A few more write-ins to add: Burmuda, Fakland, and there were several that I put "island" instead of "islands" that didn't count. Also, having some sort of hint, like what continent they are associated with (could have "none defined") or who currently controls them (could have "disputed") would be helpful. Great quiz!

So you've got Tokelau, but not Niue and and the Cook Islands?
+1
Level 74
Jul 28, 2020
Yes, Cook Islands and Niue both became independent from New Zealand, in 1965 and 1974 respectively, and appear in the Countries 197 to 205 quiz. I've always maintained they deserve listing in the Countries of the World quiz. Tokelau is a New Zealand territory, and in referenda in 2006 and 2007 they voted on becoming independent in free association with New Zealand, and both votes failed to pass. Here is an article on a new referendum proposed for 2025.

Level 74
Jul 28, 2020
Thanks for pointing this out - reading about it has uncovered an awful story of people being kicked out of their homeland for no good reason. The basis for this quiz is the country list at www.citypopulation.de, and Chagos, and BIOT, don't appear there.

You really should remove the five overseas departments of France, and I don't care what you can find on citypopulation.de...
+1
Level 74
Jul 30, 2020
We don't care what we find on citypopulation.de either. But some of the quizzes we make use www.citypopulation.de as a source, and this is one of them.
+2
Level 80
Jul 30, 2020
That's not a good choice. Most of the answers are clearly not sovereign countries but most of them have at least some autonomy. The overseas departments don't (that's why they are departments and not collectivities). It's like putting Hawaii in the list, same thing.
+1
Level 74
Jul 30, 2020
We agree with you that some of these "countries" aren't countries, and for the reasons you give too. Our original instructions before it was edited for featuring made this clearer, although that is just our opinion, as is yours.
+2
Level 80
Jul 30, 2020
I don't really see the point in such a quiz, sorry. citypopulation.de may be a useful website, but it's clearly full of mistakes. By the way, you don't even refer to them explicitely in the title, rather saying "reference sources"... and I don't understand that either if you really want to honor them with this quiz (that they in fact don't deserve).
+1
Level 58
Sep 10, 2020
Came to make the same complaint. This quiz isn't clear to me. What are the "reference sources?" Why are the territories above included but not: Swahari Republic/Western Sahara Taiwan (can't join the UN, can't fly its flag) Palestine Aruba Greenland Curacao Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland (reference source, FIFA) And so many others
+1
Level 74
Sep 10, 2020
These is only one reference source involved: www.citypopulation.de. The instructions originally stated explicitly that this quiz was about places referred to as countries by that website, but that text was edited to "reference sources" [sic] by Quizmaster Dan when this quiz was featured.
+1
Level 74
Jul 31, 2020
Spelling: explicitly. We agree with you about the vagueness of "reference sources". The original instructions specified www.citypopulation.de as the source for this quiz, but it was changed to "reference sources" by Quizmaster during the featuring process.

Level 80
Aug 1, 2020
Ok... I'm not a native english-speaker, and my spellchecker is in French. I like good spelling and grammar, and I do my best. I spend quite a time to make understandable comments on these quizzes, but of course, I make mistakes. I often use a french-english dictionary, but I can't check every single word... just to explain those two mistakes, we spell "indépendant" for independent, and "explicite" for explicit. I will try to remember those two differences. But I'm also a sensitive person, and I feel that you are making fun of me or trying to unwind because my arguments annoy you. But I'm not saying all of this to bother you, don't I have the right to disagree?
Sorry but for me, it's a question of basic understanding of geography, and there are more ambiguous cases than this one. The French overseas departments are constituent parts of France, have very few autonomy, apart from that needed due to the distance with the mainland, and have very little chance to become independent soon.
+1
Level 74
Aug 1, 2020
I think you are missing the point here. This quiz is simply a list of the countries that are named as such at www.citypopulation.de. It does not seek to agree or disagree with their list. If you disagree, complain to them, not to us.

Aug 2, 2020
I wrote a reply yesterday, but just to say the same thing again and again... You seem to be a bit obtuse about this, so I'll just say that I disagree with the basic choice made for the quiz, thus I'm sorry but I have to rate it 1 star (not that it matters...).

Ou of curiosity, why are Sint Maarten, Niue, Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Akrotiri and Dhekelia not on this quiz?
+1
Level 74
Sep 10, 2020
The first four are a part of the Countries 197 to 205 quiz. Akrotiri and Dhekelia have never been considered independent by anyone, and having been to both halves of that territory, I can see why - as you drive into and out of it from the Republic of Cyprus, it's border is completely unmarked and un-signposted. It is as good as invisible, and life continues within its borders exactly as in the neighbouring republic. The terms of its creation, when Britain granted Cyprus its independence, are explicit that it is not an active territory in the way that, say, Gibraltar is.
