NOTES - You begin with 20 minutes but can get TIME BONUSES for completing the entities of the countries at bottom left. A time bonus is given for completing each country's entities. Some dependent territories I divided to create a greater challenge. TWO Pacific island groups are labeled according to their collective name (be it a country, territory, etc) and also have labels for separate island groups within them. Markers are coded by color according to the five categories on the bottom right and Antarctic claims. Moving the mouse over an answer's marker will show its name and status. Countries are the 196 Sporcle sovereign states. Dep Terr are dependent territories. Adm Divisions are integral parts of countries, be they administrative divisions or Sections of a Sovereign State. De Facto State refers to a non-UN member state recognized as independent to some degree not included in the countries list. Other refers to a handful of special designations. Some of the entities may be disputed. I tried to make the typing easy by shortening the names unless a longer name is needed to accurately name the entity. IF AN ANTARCTIC CLAIM IS NOT NAMED TYPE (Country Name) followed by "Antarctica" to name the answer. If it has a name (other than so-and-so Antarctic Territory) you must type the name of the claimed Antarctic region. Antarctic claims are all below 60 deg South and DO NOT count toward any other category except Uninhabited. Uninhabited refers to entities which have no permanent settlement NOT INCLUDING a base of revolving inhabitants (i.e. there needs to be a permanent year-round population of the same people). UN Non Self Gov refers to territories on the UN's Non Self-Governing Territories List. ZOOMING TIP: Hold the SHIFT key while zooming with the mouse wheel to prevent the page from scrolling.
