    Egypt would be #1 on a historical frog population map.

    I am looking at the map, and with India, South Africa, Indonesia and Mexico, and also lots of Southern America, I'm somehow thinking something colonization related, but whole of Europe doesn't make sense then. Although most marked countries there did have colonies or extraterritorial settlements (although... not sure about Hungary).

    Does it have something to do with war participation?

    Hungary had a war against Romania, but you don't see Romania being in color.
    British East India Company being separate from Britain is interesting.

    Maybe some kind of embargo?
    It's not like many would be buying stuff from soviet Russia at the start of the 20s.

    It is related to that time period. The colors are not related to the League of Nations.

    The source I used did not have data for the grey countries. Most of those places would probably have some color if I looked for other sources.

    While the topic is not explicitly about war or colonization, it is related to both.

    The data I used treated the different countries that made up the empires individually. So all the territories like India, Indonesia, South Africa, Philippines, etc are on their own.


    No, it's not exports.

    It is not related or to about the Russian revolution (though I'm sure the Russian revolution affected this, as it probably affected everything in Russia).

    So, is it this?



    If so, @Lohrenswald should have it - his post pretty much revealed the answer.

    Sorry, I haven't checked in the past few days.

    Gonna say open floor, because I probably have to be rather busy. I might post one, but don't count on it
