I'm using an older version but felt compelled to give a thumbs up rating, because I'm enjoying the deck!

I would also like an option to sort by population. I do not think this would hinder long term memorization as another commentor suggested.

I suspended all the capital cards because I'm not interested in learning those. This was easy to do because the deck is well organized!

The deck is simply fantastic and I have not much to say about it that hasn't been already said.

Anyway, I want to answer one of the previous commentaries about it: The one that suggests to sort countries by population.
It is not bad idea if you want to name/recognize just the most important countries, but it can become incredible more difficult to grasp the last few thousands of cards, so if you want to complete the full journey, the difficulty will overall increase, so I think that's a must-not change.

Absolutely brilliant, and a great improvement on version 1.0.
The older version had odd filters on the flags which distorted the colours.
This newer one also has improvements in accuracy and it appears to have a few more cards and countries the other one was missing.
Very impressed - it is the most useful deck on this entire website.
Everyone should study this deck and improve their knowledge of the world

Really good - but it would be better if the countries where sorted by population/size

It's kinda annoying to start with some extremely small islands if you hadn't had the more important ones.

I've currently seen 2/3rds of the cards and only saw 3 countries in continental Africa, no country in continental America (north and south) and no only a few countries from Asia/Ozeania (the only big one being the Philippines) - I force-learned European countries through a custom study since I already knew almost all about those.

A comprehensive and (as far as I can see) accurate deck. I also like that it's possible to correct it via Github.

This is amazing! Thank you so much! It's a huge deck, but thanks to the good tagging I can just start out with Europe and work from there.

Great deck!

Suggestions:
1)
When I learned capital some years ago I memorised 'Mbabane' as the capital of Swaziland.
This deck says it's 'Lobamba', so I checked Wikipedia. It lists them both: Lobamba as legislative and Mbabane as executive.
You could consider adding Mbabane or just a note explaining it like with South Africa :)

2)
Same thing with a note for Sri Lanka

3)
Being from Denmark I couldn't help but noticed how horribly disfigured Denmark is on the map of the Baltic Sea.
It turns out that the picture is actually of the now gone 'Ancylus Lake' and therefore over 10.000 years old.

Here's a better picture of the Baltic Sea with no name, maybe it's useful:

I greatly appreciate this deck and the work that went into it. I was looking for a deck for learning countries (Map->Country), but this deck helped push me to learn more than that (Country->Capital, Capital->Country, Flag->Country).

At the end, though, I found that the one-way Map->Country and Flag-Country cards left me with a number of leech cards and closely-related cards that I couldn't keep straight. Countries with similar flags were a lot of trouble (ex. New Zealand/Australia, Curaçao/Nauru, Palestine/Sudan, Andorra/Moldova), I never quite got the relative locations of various island nations down pat, and while I could easily recognize, say, Uganda or Hungary on a map, I wouldn't be able to tell you what other countries they bordered.

The conclusion is that, to master this deck and to have a reasonably accurate world map in my head (which is the goal, no?), I really needed to also learn cards for Country->Flag and Country->Map relations too. Adding these cards to the deck forced me to verbally explain what each country's flag looks like and what countries they border.

This yields 50% more cards to study, but also dramatically improves the benefit that I get from this deck.

Great job

This is the most comprehensive geography deck on AnkiWeb, by far. Thanks for putting in all this work to keep it updated and maintained.
