Canada is bigger than China. Now the real dispute is either China is in 3rd or the US is 3rd, due to multiple sources(mainly the CIA World Factbook) taking in the US water area(not inland water), but not for any other country. And for China, well the only thing that migjt change China's size are the disputed territories(mainly the Spratly islands and Taiwan). There is no dispute if Canada or China are bigger

Excellent quiz once again, although could I suggest a time bump? As (at the moment) No one has actually completed this quiz and I only got 1/3 of them going at a pretty reasonable pace.

sorry about that - I am changing in new quizzes because I usually refer to the 'countries of the world' quiz on jetpunk, and in that quiz Burma has been changed to Myanmar

Great quiz, for those like myself that can point out all the worlds countries but have not memorised them alphabetically it is quite a test. I was bogged down with Myanmar for a long time, then Afghanistan ...... watching that clock tick down is not the best of occupations........... good quiz.

After about fifteen tries I finally got them all!! With 0:42 left ... At first I didn't think it would be possible but when you start to memorize series of countries, it gets a lot easier.

Level 31
Nov 23, 2020
That is how the country of Cote d'ivoire wishes for the country to be spelled and pronounced, though this is also true for Timor Leste, even though no one takes that one into account

I think it should be updated for a few names (North Macedonia, Eswatini, Ivory Coast...) and maybe add 5 minutes because tiny countries are a pain in the ass.

Cote d'Ivoire is the proper name for the country, and this should also be updated to fix Timor Leste
