No, but perhaps accept DE for Democratic Republic of the Congo. That would be more consistent.

You should accept more type in for the likes of Micronesia and Congo though. Amazing quiz, each time I set a new goal, first 350 then 375, now 400.

it’s actually faster to systematically list consonant-vowel and vowel-consonant pairs and then just type common double consonant starts of words like “sw”, “th”, etc until time runs out, than to think about which country/capital/state starts with what letters.

I think there should be a Jetpunk standard for Ivory Coast / Côte d'Ivoire. In some quizzes both are accepted, in some "Ivory Coast" shows up but not "Côte d'Ivoire". However, in this one "IV" doesn't work at all.
