Your URL not found

Gimme a world map and I can name every country, but I might mix up a couple island nations in the Carib or Pacific. Without a map probly can list all from a mental map. A few capitals I haven't caught up with. Don't consideer flags worth learning, might get half.

I'd say 90% of capitals and flags and no country not heard of.

Pretty stupid quiz. Israel isn't recognized.

I did get 115 countries. If I could type faster, I would have had far more.

I use Sporcle for quizzes. I’m able to get all 197 countries, though there are still a few capitals I mix/mess up. When it comes to flags, I don’t pay nearly as much attention to those, so there are a lot that I’m unaware of.

For national subdivisions, I can name the following:

All US states and territories
All Canadian provinces and territories
All Australian states and territories
All Mexican states
All Brazilian states
All Malaysian states
All UAE emirates

I got a 106/195 for countries in 10 min. I missed a lot of the "stan" countries that are north of Iran, and a lot of tiny countries and islands.

I didn't bother with the capital quiz because I don't know capitals that well outside of the famous cities.
