I came up with the same answer via a different route, namely goegraphy and elimination. But your route is definitely more concrete than mine. Good one! Enjoyed it!

I'm a pretty hard reviewer; this is one of a handful of teasers I've rated as a "3" for fun. It has the intuitive leap, the attainable "AHA!" that solves the puzzle. I also considered longest northern coastline on the continent, form of government, etc.

Thanks for the great entry!

WOW!! That one got me and my daughter. We just put Bulgaria between Australia & Denmark so the group would still be in alphabetical order. Your answer was a bit more cereberal!!! Thanks for the info.

I thougt it was Bulgaria. The words have 9 letters, then 8 then 6 then 9. So I choose Bulgaria because it has 8 and would continue the pattern. I never even thought of the capitals That was hard!
