Inspired by Ironic Sans's 50 States Game
comes the more worldly (and difficult) 245 Countries in 10 minutes.
Also pairs well with the previously posted GeoSense.
(Caveats/Minor Spoilers: Game has some questionable choices, like making you type in the long form of the country's name, i.e. "People's Republic of", rather than the common usage name. Some countries have "The" in front of them. Also, your spelling must be perfect, which can trip you up for those obscure island nations, and countries you know but don't know the exact spelling of. Good Luck!)

Which Country Has The Most Beautiful Women?
The best quality of life? The most divorces? The most mobile phones? The highest cost of living? Which one is the most visited? Rank the bastards! After browsing through this website, I'm sure the conclusion that we're all living in the wrong one
is inescapable. The statistics and sources may be questionable, but there sure are a lot
of interesting lists here! Meanwhile my own country, Portugal, has just been denounced as the the laziest in Europe
and the booziest in the world
. They lie! They lie! [Actually, it's a fair cop, guv. And it was nice to drag down the Brits with us.

What an amazing site! You can find the populations of almost any country in the world here. It does not stop there, there is a mountain of information on the country's politics and policies. Take two seconds and I am sure you will be amazed at this site. It is nice to see that some groups are using the net to help inform people!
