About This Quiz

Grab those maps and head to the friendly skies. While you might think your geography skills are up to par, there's a chance that it's localized to your region. Right now, you're going to have to step out of your city, state or country to take a trip around the world. Rather than traveling around the world in 80 days, we're hitting up some of the world's countries in 30 questions. Can you prove how well you know them?

The world is made up of many things. While you have your oceans, much of the attention is largely focused on the seven continents. While Antarctica isn't considered a place that can be used as a long-term habitat, the other six continents are home to the world's 195 countries. How well do you know them?
