How well do you guys know America? How's about Europe? And other continents? I started doing these after watching the Map Game episode of Game Grumps, in case you're wondering why the sudden interest in geography — although I've always been a geography nerd, I used to basically do cartography of the Minecraft server we were on once upon a time, and I also used to play Geoguessr a fair amount >_>

Anyways!!!! Here's some quizzes I did I guess:

There's probably quizzes for South & Central America and Polynesia too, and other local territories (Canadian provinces, English counties, Japanese prefectures, stuff like that), but I haven't done any of those yet.

As for how I did:
  • I, uh... got all 50 states on my first try... (map has spoilers) in less than a minute... I actually have them memorized... please don't beat me up and steal my lunch money...

  • I got 73% of Europe on my first try.
    I didn't really know where most of the former Yugoslavian countries were (Croatia and Bosnia were pure luck >_>), I mixed up Slovenia and Slovakia, and I also missed the Czech Republic which is shameful!!!! Also I completely spaced Moldova and Malta. Still, not bad overall.

  • I got 64% of Asia on my first try.
    Not too awful, although I didn't really know any of the -stans (except Afghanistan and Pakistan cuz they've been relevant to U.S. politics, but also I remembered Kazakhstan was surprisingly huge). Also I completely spaced Malaysia which is like, how

  • I got 27% of Africa on my first try.
    I'm completely ignorant about Africa as a continent. I assume this is because I am a dumb American.

Okay that's enough about me. How much of the world do you know?

Yeaaaah, no. I suck at geography so I won't even bother.

Sorry. :P

I did Africa because I figured it'd be the one I'm worst at: 87% 3:18

Worse than I expected :/

Goddamn, that's pretty good.

One way I remember which one is the Vatican is that I know the Vatican's in Rome, and Rome is closer to the west coast of Italy. I remember the shape of Kosovo pretty well, too, because it was pictured on the news constantly in the late 90s (there was a conflict there and all), plus it's on their flag.

I remember the Caucasus pretty well, for some reason. I know Armenia's the smallish one that borders Turkey (they have a history of conflict, including the very unfortunate and horrible Armenian genocide), and that Georgia's slightly larger and borders Russia (they had a conflict over South Ossetia in 2008). Then I should theoretically remember Azerbaijan through process of elimination, although I obviously did not when I last took the test >_>

I also remember Myanmar pretty well (it's the one that gets weird and wormy that's not Thailand) partly because of that one Top Gear special where they went there, but also because Myanmar might honestly be the most gorgeous country on Earth.

They certainly have one of the most gorgeous writing systems on Earth (alongside Thai, Devanagari, hanzi, and Georgian).

Asia: 100% first try, 1:35
Africa: 100% second try, 1:45 (blew the first try because I somehow missed the fact that Swaziland changed its name to Eswatini and started clicking all over the map)
Europe: 100% first try, 1:14
US states: 100% first try, 5:56 remaining

Nobody can beat me in geography :p
