This is a really awesome quiz but an extra 2-3 minutes would be appreciated. There just isn't enough time to think. I'd have to memorise all the answers if I wanted to complete it with the current time limit.

Unless you're including spaces... but for all other two-word countries, it shows two numbers. So it really should be 6, 6.
