I'm curious to know what strategies are used on this quiz. Assuming most who are doing the 1 minute sprint have already aced, or are at least well familiar, with all 196 countries -- do Jetpunkers generally type the countries in alphabetical order from memory, try to type the shortest countries first, use the map, something else?

I always start with USA, UK, DR, DRC, and then I just go for shorter countries like India. When I'm trying to find shorter countries, I'm continuously typing things like Germany and Algeria.

I know the 'best' way to do this quiz is by typing the shortest names, and that's how I always try to start (USA, UK, UAE, Congo for two, CAR, Cuba, etc) but then as time goes by I start panicking and just typing whatever countries I can think of...so I get Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan and New Zealand and a bunch of other long ones...anyone else end up this way?

Alright, I went through the list of accepted typeins and tried to get the bare minimum of characters to see if this quiz is theoretically possible. Nobody actually cares about the process but you'd need about 266.6 WPM minimum. Apparently the world record is around the 270-277 mark, so I guess it's technically doable?
