Name the 10 countries in the world whose names are made up of 4 letters.
(Now, of course, you might use the Internet to cheat and pretend like you just knew them off the top of your head. But if I were you, I’d rather go to heaven.)

Peru, Iraq, Iran, Cuba, umm… Spai…
I can’t think of any more… I only know those from briefly studying Africa for 4-H. Ah well.
Unless, of course, you can count and know that Niger is five letters. My brain demands food from me, until then it rebels and makes me stupid. >.<
Proud to say I got 8 out of 10 without Papa Google. Togo and Oman were the ellusive little tricksters.
I think some of these aren’t countries, but at least I didn’t cheat! I couldn’t think of 10 either :(
OK – with no cheating except from the friends above*
I think Bali is really part of Indonesia?
Guam is a US Territory with some special designation – not independent.
There is one more?
and the answer is — added to those above —
OF COURSE PEG KNOWS!!!!!!! Yes, Bali is part of Indonesia. The one thing I know courtesy of a delicious little trip last year.
Yep, Leave it to Peg! I got 6 without looking, but Bali was one of those, so 5:
Iran, Iraq, Oman, Peru, Mali
I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard of Mali :-/. I sooooo failed your pop quiz.
I care nothing about countries with four-letter names, but your last admonishment against potential cheaters cracked me up. Using that one next year with those [four-letter-word] plagiarizers.
Without looking at other’s posts or the internets:
Cuba, Mali, Peru, Iran, Iraq, Oman, Laos, Chad . . . thinking . . . Togo . . . and . . .
You got me, but I totally would have remembered the other one a year ago when I was teaching 4th grade geography.
USSR (ha ha ha! Just kidding)
I’m stumped after that.
