Know Your Countries?

I’ve stumbled upon several more weird internet tests over the last few days.  I found this one kind of intriguing.  It is pretty basic.  You just try to name as many countries as you can in 5 minutes.  It doesn’t sound too hard but the frustrating part is that you actually have to know how to spell them.  I managed to get 51 out of a possible 270.  The percentage isn’t great (19%) but I didn’t feel too bad about it.  I should really only count 50 though because I was trying to type in Dominican Republic when I accidentally hit enter after “Dominica.”  Apparently that is a country too.  Who knew?

Can anyone out there best my score of 51?  Bring it on!



  1. Well, I’d done this quiz a few months ago, but this time I got 69.

  2. dang it, I only got 61… it also requires you to be able to type fast enough…

  3. Wow. I thought maybe you guys who were getting in the 60s did better because you had a chance to prepare. I tried it again. I got exactly 51 this time too. I guess those are just the countries I know. This time I lucked out again. I got Niger when I was trying to type Nigeria.
