I know my world countries like nobody's business, and I couldn't do this quiz, even if I had 10 minutes! Of course, I am a hopeless typist. But to actually complete this quiz you'd need to type at around an average of 3 to 4 countries per second! Is there anyone who can do this? Wow!

DollarBill2208 has asked "How do you know if someone is cheating, unless they admit it?". Usually you can't - if you want to inflate your score and grab extra quiz points, just write down the answers after you take a test, take the quiz again and copy the answers in. It's a bit like picking up your tee shot, dropping it in the cup and signing your card for a hole-in-one. But this quiz is probably unique on Jetpunk - it's the only quiz where you can post a 100% score and automatically out yourself as a cheat. By the way, I honor the amazing 66 you've gotten on this quiz with real typing.

Dec 15, 2014
The quizzes about 4,5 et 6 letter country names surely help, in addition to the few acronyms (UK, USA, CAR, UAE ; DRC is not interesting, it's better to get two answers by typing Congo). I only managed to get 49 by typing the shortest names, I know I can do a little better, but surely not more than 60. So, there seems to be a 100% and it's annoying because it's surely fake and it prevents anyone to get 5 points ;).

Aesthus and Dogman, the high score shown in the stats is not completely accurate. 0.1% of people have to get that score in order for it to show up. And rawe, nicely done! I just got 81 myself after trying about 10 times. I think I can get it up to at least 85 after a couple days of practice.

I didn't take it since December 2014, so still at 61, which beats 99,8% of takers... easy to go over 60? I don't think so, you have to be a fast typist. Fortunately, it's now possible to get 5 points if you beat 95% of takers, so I won't have to try to do better ;).

Got to 51 countries on best go - use countries with shortened names (UK, USA, UAE, CAR, FYROM, PNG, PRC, ROC). Congo gives two answers. Then I move to four and five letter countries.
