My first thoughts when starting: "Ok! Gotta get the quick ones. Equatorial Guinea! No, no any other one. Mozambique! Cote d'Ivoire! Zimbabwe!" Needless to say, I might need a little practice with these quick quizzes. Also, does it surprise anyone how DRC and the Republic of the Congo have different percentages even though you can just type "Congo" and get both?

Because some people type DRC and get credit for just one of them.

Exactly my thougts. But it's still good to get the slower ones because that way you type something all the time without trying to think too much about the quickest ones.

And here I am, five months later, still trying to get a 100% on the quiz. I look in the comments, see the first one, and exclaim, "Hey! I was thinking the same thing!" Took me a while to realize it was me who said that. I think I need some rest...

I don't know if this means anything, but (apart from the longest name, predictably last), the bottom 5 are the five small island countries.

Actually, it seems to be helpful (at least to me) in this quiz to type the island nations first. I always type them together in the Countries of the World quiz so I am used to remember them together, and at the end of the quiz it's helpful if there are some big countries left on the map. I reached 48 after a few tries.

Sao Tome isn't last because of its long name; you only need the first two words to get it. It's last on the countries of the world quiz as well...which is why I always get it.

50/54 on the first try. And yes, I'm a geography nerd. What's weird though, is that I got 5 points even though there are people who typed more countries than me.

Quizmaster recently redid the points system to level out the geography quizzes (we got too good!). Here are the points tables:

% CorrectPointsPercentilePoints
100%5 points95th5 points
90%4 points75th4 points
80%3 points60th3 points
65%2 points50th2 points
50%1 points25th1 points

Your points are whatever is highest. So you can get 5 points as long as you beat 95% of people OR if you get 100% correct answers.

So that's why my level jumped from 50 to 51! Please note, I wasn't anywhere near level 51 when this happened.

It's nice that 5 points now kicks in at the 95th percentile. On this quiz, that means you'll get the full 5 if you score 42.

Right then, so this quiz requires you to think of the countries - and later on also think about the ones you've already said so you don't duplicate - and type them in in just over a second for each one - And there's people getting all of these. I have no idea how that is physically possible, unless you've got a list of the countries next to you and you're just copy typing.
