    Republic of Cyprus - $29,853
    Malta - $23,971
    TRNC - $14,765

    And Turkey has the wrong color on the map. Should be the next category up.

    With the exception of Portugal, that matches perfectly with the National Geographic Survey's definition of Western Europe!

    You know, looking at this map again it is striking how well you can see former political divisions.

    The Iron Curtain can still clearly be seen - although large parts of central and Baltic Europe are catching up fast to their western and northern neighbours.

    You can also still see Yugoslavia, as well as the Soviet Union.

    What's up with Portugal?

    Number of males for each female in the total population:
    Spoiler :

    Red is more men and blue more women than the world average of 1.1 men for each women.

    In Saudi Arabia, for 100 woman they have 118 mens, in Russia, for 100 women, they have only 86 men.

    Moderator Action: I have said it before and I will say it again - this is not the place to continually rehash the already pointless argument about Poland. I have deleted several posts.

    Were lazy, and like it that way.
    Or, we are idiots who keep electing awful governments since 1985.
    Take your pick.

    And Spain should the the same color too. They'll soon be - building apartments everywhere doesn't create lasting wealth. Not too different from the "irish miracle" also.

    Awful governments? Maybe, but how can we know it is going to be a bad government beforehand? It's a game of (un)luck...

    Uh, what the hell is that map supposed to be?

    Spoiler :

    The world according to me. Made it taking this quiz and just erasing those which I didn't get. I missed almost all the Pacific Islands except for Palau and Micronesia and all the West Indies except for Dominica, which I only got because I tried to type Dominican Republic. Some of these (Somalia, Bulgaria, Kenya, Netherlands) are just inexcusable, I admit. (I missed San Marino also.)

    Partly inspired by this thread



    After the Great Chinese Space Bats War, the three main Pacific Alliance powers divided up China into occupation zones. The Koreans run Manchuria, the Japanese administered the North China Plains, and the Americans occupied the south. The Indians were left out of occupying China proper, but was allowed to annex some border territories and given a free hand in governing Burma. The Mongolians, Uighurs and Tibetans declared their independence and ethnically-cleansed their new countries of Han Chinese. What's left of China is governed by a self-proclaimed "Caliphate of China".

    I must say, I approve of the GCSB War! :D This guarantees the future superpowers are both liberal democracies(USA and EU).

    The division of the map itself also looks rather awesome, to say the least. I like the red blotch in the South! ...China actually looks pretty cool when partitioned.

    ...Makes me wonder if Japan and Korea will try to throw off the shackles of American suzerainty in the near future. :mischief: The Second Great Asian Space Bats War!
