If you find mistakes (location/cities missing/wrong names/type-ins...) please tell! I've left information in the answers (population, coordinates...) in case people want to use this data for similar quizzes

please accept "DC" and "NYC" as those are the their local names :)

Could you accept just Juarez for Ciudad Juarez? And perhaps La Mochica Baja should be Trujillo?

It would also be nice if you accepted Komsomolsk, especially since Nikolayevsk is accepted.

Awesome quiz. Kind of like the Shetlands, Kelowna is the biggest city in the Okanagan region (Western Canada). I believe there is a similar distinction needed for The Ruhr, but I'm not so sure what it is.

DC might be too short, but NYC is usually accepted in Jetpunk. Cluj should be enough instead of Cluj Napoca, Lvov for Lviv, Joburg for Johannesburg (even official website is http://www.joburg.org.za/)

and Koror for Koror State (if it's even included as a city)

Also some countries aren't spelled out in the results.

Something like that: http://www.jetpunk.com/search?term=top%20five%20countries%20category I don't know, if that is possible :) Also, a small error on this quiz: Shetland would been Lerwick, though that doesn't have more than 10.000 inhabitants.

It's too bad that the time limit can't be 30 minutes. I got 40%, but I didn't even get to Asia before time ran out.

Took it again just for Asia (plus the rest of Russia) and got 19%, so probably about 58% if I had enough time to do it all at once. Got four that were at 0% in the answer stats: Zamboanga, Kirov, Anadyr, and Banjarmasin.
