Well, fun quiz, but I believe the capital of Palau is actually Ngerulmud. I know is on Melekeok island or something like that, but in the Capitals of the World quiz and in all the other capitals quizzes where Palau is mentioned, is Ngerulmud the answer.

Thanks for your comment. I've changed it so now Ngerulmud is accepted, too, but since I used a different source for the list of capital cities I'll leave Melekeok as the answer. I wish there was someone from Palau to explain us what really is the right answer!

Hi Scambigol, Great quiz! Ngerulmud doesn't work yet, however. Also I think BSB is closest to #14a rather than #14.

Should have fixed both things now, thanks for spotting the mistakes!
