About This Quiz

A country is a region or space that is identified as a national entity with its own unique political system. It may be an independent sovereign state or a part of a state as a non-sovereign entity. There are approximately 195 countries in the world, some of which have their own languages and cultures.

We have all seen the map of the world and the vastness of some countries in relation to other countries at least a dozen times, but when we see them, it is usually accompanied by their name, their capitals, and their large cities, as well as the countries which border them. 

Every country has a distinctive shape with peaks and inlets as well as islands off the coast. Some of the countries which people can easily identify include the United States, Italy, Mexico, Greenland, Cuba, Australia, Japan, Greece and Russia. 

How well do you know the outlines of the different countries of the world? Will the geography that you learned back in high school help you in this quiz? If you would like to test your knowledge and see how well you do, then you need to take this quiz!
