    Does is have to do with the Education System?...

    Brown = free public schools up through high school,
    Blue = free through Univeristy
    Red = ???

    Or perhaps it has to do with number of kilometers of rail lines? Nah, India would have ot be included somehow.

    I have no idea.

    Is it too early to ask for the scale of colors?

    Just a wild guess - is it to do with internet speeds in schools?

    I can give you the scale, it probably will clear some things up. The Purple I chose for Korea is maybe not distinguished enough from the blue, it's hard to tell, but that may be also because there is only one country with Purple. The thing I am looking for however is not tied specifically to Korea.

    Definitely not international organisations. Save for the UN there's no group with Canada, Egypt and Myanmar as members together..

    This is really messing with my head. And the graph isn't really helping me..

    Does it have anything to do with politics or government?

    And furthermore, there's something which intrigues me greatly... Why isn't India coloured? What do these countries have which such a gigantic country like India doesn't?

    Oh sorry, it's not Myanmar. It's Thailand in the region. I somehow must've misclicked and not checked it afterwards. I've gone over the whole map again, there should be no other mistakes now...



    Explanation for the graph:

    A originates from land: Blue
    A and B originate from land: Purple
    B originates from land: Red
    B and C originate from land: Orange
    C originates from land: Yellow
    C and A originate from land: Green
    A and B and C originate from land: Brown

    [EDIT: How do I phrase that correctly? "originates" from doesn't nail it completely... Probably "is present in"]

    A,B and C are not the countries themselves, they are something inside (and outside) of them. I hope that's not clear.

    EDIT: and no, not politics and not intergovernemental organizations.

    Anything to do with the countries official names or government types?

    For a while I was considering minerals, but I don't think that's it..

    It probably helps to look at the whole "yellow" group (from West to East):

    Chile, Mexico, USA, Spain, United Kingdom, Hungary, Finland, Russia, Jordan, China, Japan, Australia.

    and the whole Red and the whole blue group...

    No, not official names and not minerals, you are all very far at the moment, I nevertheless will wait some more before another hint.

    Perhaps you mean to say:
    Blue pertains to nations with trait A
    Red pertains to nations with trait B
    Purple pertains to nations with both A & B
    ...etc...

    I'm still having a very hard time with this.

    Why Brazil, Russia and China, but no India?
    Why Kenya, but no Nigeria?

    What is it that these countries have that the two of the most populous countries of their respective continents don't have?

    Well no, that would be wrong. It's not "traits" of the countries. It's something inside the countries, and that belongs to one of the colours.

    no, i was too lazy to search for the correct grey. i used another computer for the correction and apparently the versions of paint and paint.net do not mix well...

    sorry for the inconvenience, but to be clear, its Thailand in the blue group, not Myanmar! (whichvis grey) (edit: yes, on this - third device- it seems pink, it's supposed to be grey though)
