The Most Difficult Geography Quiz You'll Ever Take

No borders. No landmarks. No context. How many countries will you be able to recognize?

Here's how this works. I give you a the outline of several countries together, without borders or any other context, and you guess which countries you're looking at. So when I ask what five Eurasian countries are pictured here...

...you'd answer: Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, and Romania! Easy, right? (Wrong.)

  1. We'll start off easy. What three Northern Hemisphere countries are pictured here?

    Tanner Greenring / BuzzFeed
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    That's Canada, Greenland, and Iceland!

    Okay, maybe that one was TOO easy. We'll ramp up the difficulty a bit on the next one.

  2. A bit more difficult now. What four South American countries do you see here?

    Tanner Greenring / BuzzFeed
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    That was Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and Brazil!

    Maybe you recognized the middle of South America there, maybe you didn't! Now things are starting to get a little more difficult!

  3. Which five big Asian countries are contained in this landmass?

    Tanner Greenring / BuzzFeed
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    That was Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, China, and North Korea!

    That's a tough one, unless you spotted China's coast on the right.

  4. Now for a few smaller countries. What four tropical countries are these?

    Tanner Greenring / BuzzFeed
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    That was Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Guatemala!

    Pretty tricky without El Salvador in there to make Central America more recognizable.

  5. What five European countries do you see here?

    Tanner Greenring / BuzzFeed
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    That was Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, and Belgium.

    A veritable league of beer-brewing nations!

  6. What four countries are pictured here? (Hint: Two of them are in the Middle East.)

    Tanner Greenring / BuzzFeed
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    That was Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran and Iraq.

  7. What seven coastal African countries do you see here?

    Tanner Greenring / BuzzFeed
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    That was Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, and Benin!

    These seven countries make up the Southern coast of West Africa.

  8. And finally, what four Asian countries are pictured here?

    Tanner Greenring / BuzzFeed
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    That was Bangladesh, Myanmar, Cambodia, and Lao People's Democratic Republic.

    South Asia represent! (Some of it, at least.)
