G to K

Here are the countries in the world, together with
their capital cities and currencies.  I hope these are accurate, however, in the ever
changing world of today it is difficult to keep up to date.

Where I am not confident of the answer I have left
gaps, if you can supply any of this missing information or if there is something that you
feel should be added to the list, please send it in. june@hintsandthings.co.uk

I would like to thank Tim for supplying some of the
collective names for me and to
Ben Hockliffe for filling in a lot of the gaps.

It has been pointed out by Rachel Lloyd
and

Rodolfo

that Hong Kong is not a Country
but a region of China and, therefore, has no capital city.
