Hint: all the numbers in the data are less than 10.
The amount of times madviking has said "EFF YOU <country>!!" to each country.
Why are US and Canada with sub-national units delineated?
Another question is why Europe shoved in the far left side? World maps conventionally place Britain in the centre, in line with the Greenwich Meridian.
doesn't seem to be link to population or size...
the short list of country seems to reduce the list to "exotic" topic...
Norway, France and hungary leader in Europe? no Belgium?
Let's put out sports (lack of Russia), movies/song/technology/agriculture (USA number one)...
religion is out too...
Is grey value 0 or no data?
He said: The grey doesn't mean anything.
No, world maps that you're accustomed to seeing do that.
Malaysia, Saudi Arabia andddd Norway. Odd. Sounds like oil but there's a lot of oil countries missing.
Sovereign wealth fund?
Not that, but it does have to do with money.
Also, I think I should be more clear about the gray. The map was taken from an analysis of 29 countries. The makers of the map simply didn't look at the gray ones.
Close enough. Education funding as percentage of GDP.
Wow that was a total shot in the dark. Half done with a map, will finish it tomorrow and upload.
Okay, this will take a bit of explanation.
All the countries coloured have at least one of something. Grey countries have none.
The map tracks the number of whatever each country has, broken into tertiles (learned a new word!). Each tertile is gradated in colour to represent place within.
In other words, map's scale is as followed
Bottom third: [Light Turquoise - Dark Turquoise]
Middle third: [Pink - Maroon]
Top third: [Peach - Brown]
USA is #1
Is related to money.
Liberia and Morocco don't have any billionaires.
I would probably guess millionaires though.
They could be tax exile billionaires. And the king of Morocco is reckoned to be a billionaire.
Not to do with people no.
Something about animals?
Separate names with a comma.
