Worldguru Academy divides the world into a total of only 41 Regions.

The regions Worldguru Academy uses are designed to facilitate learning their countries and capitals by sharing a common trait, e.g. "Micro Europe" are Europe's tiny countries. "The Stans" are all the countries that end in "Stan". Focusing on and mastering just one region at a time is the secret to learning the whole world.

NOTE: Malta is listed in Wikipedia as one of Europe's micro nations, but it is also an Island Nation. So, Malta is listed in Europe's Island Nations region.

NOTE: Russia is a huge country that spans both Europe and Asia. The majority of Russia lies in Asia so it is included in Asia's "Northeast Asia" region. Turkey is also a country that is both European and Asian. It is listed in Asia's "Mediterranean Middle East" region. Egypt is considered a Middle Eastern country, however it is clearly part of the African continent. So, it is listed in Africa's "Mediterranean Africa" region. Cyprus is in the European Union and as this note from wikipedia states:Cyprus is approximate to Anatolia (Asia Minor), which comprises the bulk of Turkey, but it may be considered to be in Asia and/or Europe, which together constitute Eurasia. It is listed, like Turkey, in Asia's "Mediterranean Middle East" region.

The primary purpose of Worldguru Academy is to help you learn all the world's countries and capitals; not the nuances pointed out in the notes above. Therefore each country is only listed once in the region Worldguru Academy has chosen to place it in to facilitate leaarning it and its capital. In order to keep things simple and facilitate learning the countries and their capitals, nuances and esoteric facts are left for an individuals own self study and research if anyone has a need or desire for expanded knowledge beyond simply knowing a country and its capital. Each individual country page does provide a link to Wikipedia and the CIA's World Factbook for those who need or desire to know more.
