Federated States of Micronesia. If I'm wrong with that then Nauru.

No, I can identify SEVERAL in Europe, Asia, N. America, South America and Africa but only the real well known ones. I CAN identify each state though, and draw them

I won the geography bee in 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 12th and i was against all grades in my schools, and i could locate every single country on the map including capitals, cities and even suburbs. Africa was the hardest. I can only identify a couple of flags. I dont think everyone can identify every country on this forum
