About This Quiz

AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS! Rather than going around the world physically, we're going on the trip with these 50 questions. From Mexico to France to China, could you identify these countries from their picture on a map?

Around the world, you'd find seven continents, six of which are habitable. Between Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America, there are 195 countries around the globe. Just how many of them could you recognize?

Within the 195 countries, they vastly vary in size. Vatican City, the smallest country, has a population of fewer than 500 people. With its small population, Vatican City's area isn't even listed as square miles. The country is comprised of only 109 acres. While this country might be harder to recognize, the largest country's shape, Russia, is probably easier. Russia has a population of over 144 million people that cover the span of the 6.6 million square mile country.

From Vatican City to Russia, can you name the country from a single picture? If you're from the United States, recognizing its borders would be extremely easy, but what about the neighboring countries of Canada and Mexico? Could you recognize the island of Cuba or the outline of India?

There's only one way to find out! We're making our way around the world with this quiz, and we want to know if you'll be piloting your way to a perfect score.
