44 out of 48.

Missed out Bahrain, Qatar, Bhutan and the Maldives.
I kept on staring at Bhutan on the map, thinking, "What's the name of that isolated country with one set of traffic lights that measures "Gross National Happiness" instead of GDP???"

It also took me a couple of minutes to remember all the "-stans".

Criminey. 38 and I quit with 2:00 to go. Mostly I had spelling issues with the -Stans! And Qatar. Mental block on Indonestia, completely forgot Bhutan existed, and even horrors, that Brunei was on this map....

The Europe game is even more embarrassing. I tried and tried to remember Lichtenstein and spell Herzegovina, but couldn't. Missed Estonia, Latvia, Malta, Cyprus, etc....

I did better with Europe, 41/47. Missed Cyprus, Monaco, Andorra (WTF?), Liechtenstein, San Marino, and Vatican City. Honestly I am shocked I got 41. I pulled most of the Eastern Bloc countries out of my ass. I spent like a minute trying to remember how to spell Herzegovina, and then I remembered it is "Bosnia Herzegovina"

It is quirky about things -- I tried "Democratic People's Republic of Korea" and it wouldn't accept that. Presently, I am reading about San Marino on wiki.

At least I got all of Africa. But only 28 in Europe, missed easy and well known countries, like Serbia.
