This is doable if you work on it. Its not really a test of your ability to name all the countries just speed at entering a variety of letters. I didn't do very well but what I did get was just entering, ae, as, at, al, au, and so on.

I think just the opposite; it's not about how many you can name to me, its how fast you can think of the name. I looked at the countries and entered the first two letters, and even if i waste my time entering the first two letters of only one country, like rw (versus the first two of many countries, like you did) I would still do pretty good.

You just have to develop a system for catching the ones you always miss.

So, the description is actually fallacious. Unless you take the pairs of letters and combine them to make other, larger words you have to type at a speed of over 60 wpm. It is definitely faster than 23 wpm, because taken as individual pairs they must each be considered a single word. My best so far is 159 and that is after 25 tries. Stating the obvious, but this quiz is quite challenging.
