I was kind of hoping for scores from Scrabble, but I like this way too! Maybe that'll be my next quiz.

Zambia doesn't add up to 48 either. Please check your math again...

Thank you. There was an error in my code. It should be fixed and up to date now (both this and the highest scores).

I'm being very annoying now, but, technically, a name score of 50 is not a name score under 50

Duly noted. :)

If you just guess some of the shorter country names, you are in good shape

Officially 'The Bahamas' so maybe that should be discounted as well - although it may be the case Bahamas is not recorded with a "the" on Sporcle?

Why Kyrgyzstan doesn't fit this quiz!!

It's interesting how some letters can just drag some countries out of this quiz (
, the 'z' in 'Belize'), and how even short country names, by virtue of having later letters, won't count (
, Niger, Palau, Peru, Togo, Sudan).
