Description

UPDATED March 2012. Cards are now a lot neater, figures are rounded to make them easier to remember, new countries have been added (as well as disputed territories) and all figures have been updated. This is a deck containing information about all the countries of the world as listed on the Wikipedia List of Sovereign States. There are 18 cards per country, and 3611 cards in total. Topics tested are: - Capital Cities - Languages (official, recognised, and de facto) - Population - Area of the country - Currency - GDP (total and per capita) - Flags (all image files included) - Location and bordering countries This deck will definitely make you an expert in pub quizzes and the like, as well as providing you with some interesting information about the countries of the world which is very useful for understanding current affairs. Thanks very much to un_programmeur for updating this deck. Due to this contributor's hard work various aspects of this deck including populations, flags and some spelling mistakes have been updated or corrected. Please email me if you notice any mistakes!! I will then change all of them and in a few months release an updated deck, with everyone's requests fulfilled. jakeunna@gmail.com

Very good

Around 40% of the time there is no place to type in an answer and no keyboard pops up, also grammar shouldn't be such a large focus in this geography game.

Personally I would find it more useful to have rough numbers excepted, 6,000,000 is pretty close to 6,030,000, also 6000000 seems pretty except able too.

Great Deck! One suggestion for flag images

Thanks very much for this deck! I've been having fun learning the flags of the world.

As another reviewer pointed out, it's tricky to make out some of the flags when they include white -- it's hard to know where the border is. The Flags card can be updated like this to put a subtle light grey border around flag images that I think helps:

Front Template:
Which country does the following flag represent?
<br />
<br />
<span class="flag">{{Flag}}</span><br>{{type:Country Name}}

New rule in the styling section:

.flag img {
border:1px solid #DDDDDD;
}

I hope others might find this useful.

Glad I got this one

I have some complaints about this deck, but completeness is not one of them. It's almost too thorough. I'm mostly interested in the capitals and languages spoken, but it turned out to be easy enough to strip things like population or gdp.

What kept me from giving 5 stars was that far too many images were cruddy. That said, they weren't impossible to use, but it's a shock when you get a giant pixellated flag pop up (see Nagorno-karabakh). Flags with white at the edge appear not to have anything. I suppose setting an off-white background could help this.

very good deck and I`ve been using it for almost 2 years

I`ve been using this deck for almost 2 years. It`s very well set up.

Due to the way it`s organized, you can remove the information you`re not interested in. For example, I only study flags, populations, land areas, capitals, languages, and locations on the map.

There are a few items that are not perfect but the author was very quick to implement some fixes I made to the deck (updating Burma`s flag for example)

Good deck

Some misspellings and it may be a bit out of date in certain places (flag of Burma), but overall a great resource for learning all of the countries of the world!

Not bad, a few mistakes in the country names and contains countries that are not recognized but content okay overall. I'm wondering whether the population, GDP, area, ... should really be in the same deck or in separate sub-decks in order to improve focus.

The maps are not very good, often too small to clearly see which country is shown, or plain terrible (most Asian maps are completely broken).

Provided link doesn't work, btw. Finally, I'd remove the keyboard query which is messy with mobile versions of Anki.

Great deck

This is an impressive deck. It asks each field one by one. I edited the material to fit my needs (eg, removed some questions I didn't care about and added details to the back of cards just asking for the capital), but all of the material is included in the deck and easy to manipulate. Thank you!

Great deck, but remove the GDP stuff...

Just the ranking at least, or make them optional. I'd rather have avg pop per sqkm and average income in EUR or USD.
