test your middle east geography knowledge

americans are classically and stereotypically clueless about the world outside our borders. so i didn’t expect to kick butt on this geography test of northern africa and the middle east. at least i’d heard of all the countries (well, all but one: i’d not heard of “western sahara”). there’s no scoring on this — you either get the answer correct or not, and you can keep trying ’til you get it correct. but i think i actually knew (or could closely guess, and guessed right) just under half of them.
