Before spinning, you can change the appearance, sound, and other settings of the wheel to match your style.
Click the Spin button (or the center of the wheel) and the wheel will start turning before landing on a random segment.

According to the United Nations, there are 193 countries (recognized as UN member state) in the world, but they don't include Kosovo, Palestine, Taiwan, or Vatican City in their list. This is largely due to political reasons. If you deny those reasons, you could argue that there are actually 197 countries in the world.
Russia is the largest country in the world, occupying 11% of the world's landmass. You could easily mistake Australia as the biggest country, but it's only the 6th biggest country in the world.
Vatican city is the smallest country in the world with only 0.19mi² (0.49km²) of land.
You can teach students about geography and the world by using this random spinning wheel in your classroom. Here are a few ideas:
In practice: yes. In theory: no. That sounds confusing, but let us explain! In computer programs, nothing is truly random, but it is pseudo-random because a number generated by a program (algorithm) is by definition not random. That said, for 99% of use cases, pseudo-random numbers are considered random enough.
In short: yes the random spinning wheel is truly random and unbiased. Moreover, it can't be rigged! There is no way you can influence the chances of landing on a segment sooner. Changing the timing settings on the wheel will not influence the randomness in any way.
No! The wheel result is completely randomized. We do not run any pre-processing steps or other decision-making algorithms. The result the wheel lands on is chosen completely random and can not be rigged.
