Fastest Time To Name Every Country In The World (Circa 1998)

United States Craig Zucker


Manhattan, New York, United States / July 14, 2009

Craig Zucker named every country of the world in one minute, 44.16 seconds. The countries he named were ones that existed in 1998.

Zucker performed the feat on July 14, 2009 at a World Record Appreciation Society[] event in New York City. Dan Rollman and Corey Henderson were present to witness and time the feat.


  • While Craig is indeed saying the names of nations, it should be noted that he is also singing 'Nations Of The World' from the Animaniacs, a cartoon that ran in the 1990s. I think props should be given to the oversized mouse that came up that tune.

    Fail. I can do this much, much faster. And in fact I will later today.
