AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS. Rather than physically taking you around in 80 days, we're going to do it virtually with this quiz! With all the countries in the world, can you find them on a map?

The world is made up of 7 continents. Although Antarctica is inhabitable, the other six house the world's 7.6 billion people. Within these 6 continents, you'd find 195 countries. While Africa has the largest number with 54, South America has the smallest with 12. With all 195 countries in the world, do you know where they all are?

When given a map of North America, could you decide whether Mexico or Canada are the northernmost country? While that might be easy for a North American native, what about when given South America? Could you identify the Central American country that shares a border with the continent? Flying over to Europe, it might be easy to pick out where Russia falls on the map, but could you differentiate between the U.K. countries of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland? Could you look at a map of Hispaniola and identify if Haiti falls on the left or right side of the island?

If you can answer these questions, you're ready for this quiz! Cover your globes and put away your maps! Can you identify these countries on a map?

Let's find out!
