Why no Russia?

Because Russia is classed as European on the Countries of the World quiz, and we are being consistent with that. Most of Russia's population, and arguably its identity, is in Europe, although most of its land area is in Asia.

Thats good. I can probably manage that :) 1,5 min too, but 1 I start messing up, cause you cant make a single typo or miss 1 second.

Nice quiz! You include the PRC type-in for China, yet DPRK isn't accepted for North Korea and the ROK isn't accepted for South Korea, though some of the new quizzes do include this type-in. Also, scroll mode, please

Who calls the Koreas that? (Only diplomats!) Are you sure you're not trying to wangle a point with 3 or 4 keystrokes instead of 10?!

People who shorten countries names as much as possible when doing 1 minute sprints of Asian countries?
+2
Level 23
May 30, 2018
People normally call the Koreas that to shorten names on fast paced quizzes like this. For instance, typing Congo for both Democratic Republic of Congo and Republic of Congo in the Countries of the World Quiz. Writing CAR for the Central African Republic.

To be fair, who calls china prc?? I have never heard anyone calling it that. "He guys I am going on holiday to PRC".. No (thought you never can tell the weird habits of certain countries, it is allways surprising how sometimes things are so alike, yet so different)

I think the only ones that in real life conversation are called by their abreviations are the UK and the USA not even UAE I think, though I don't have enough info on that one to be sure (havent had/heard many conversations about it, but it feels weird to say.)

@Sifhraven I've never heard anyone say the full name of the UAE in real life, although it's not exactly a frequent conversation topic

To be fair quite a lot of people call it DPRK, maybe less so ROK for the South...

Not that I would want to because that would be like copy pasting answer, so cheating. But that wouldnt work for me. Neither on my laptop or tablet will there be spelling suggestions.

Got 'em all with two seconds to go. Pro tip: Get the three and four letter ones and the small countries (like Singapore) out of the way so you can crank out the 10 letter ones.

if you're going for all of them what difference does it make which order you do them in?

Level 52
Jul 27, 2017
I just go (generally) west to east; having some sort of geographic order makes it easier for me to remember which ones I'm still missing and helps me transition between them more quickly.

If anything I would do the longer ones first. Because as time progresses I start fumbling more and more, and at superspeed I can still throw out the short ones, but the long ones are getting a mess (plus more places to make errors)

If you're only going to give us a minute to do this in... could you please finally accept KSA for the KSA, DPRK for the DPRK, ROK for the ROK, and maybe ROC for Taiwan. I think PRC is already accepted for China but that only saves you two letters, unlike the others which are significant.

Except for the way that says it's in Europe, which is wrong. At least, it is on Jetpunk, and also everywhere else that's logical.
