    Why do only some of them have numbers on them? Are those still percentages or do they represent something different that the shades of blue?

    I would assume this would have to be Lactose Intolerance.

    Because that is how I found it (except for America, there you even found the percentages for the different races, which I overcoloured to make it a least a bit more challenging).
    Yes
    Correct dear sir.
    Percentage of people intolerant to lactose.

    Well, I never! I wouldn't have guessed that. But, like most things, once you see it, it makes sense.

    Well one reason I knew what it was because I had posted it earlier. :D Open floor.

    I'd still like to know the source to that map. Because it does not make sense even relatively. Unless someone wants to claim that our two rightmost parties are "center-left" relative to rest of the world. Which I find dubious.

    No :)

    Keep in mind the different colors signify a degree of something.

    Well, I'm tempted to say the degree of conformity to Sharia law. I don't think it's that, but I've no idea what else it could be.

    Degree of prevalence of a certain Islamic sect, be it Shi'a or another one.

    It is not that either :) Has nothing to do with Islam, at least not directly.

    Btw the colors are placed in order of magnitude, ie purple has the most, pale greenish has the least.

    There isn't much that Afghanistan leads the world in. Opium farmers.

    Well, i will give you two more clues :)

    1) I personally made this map (it is accurate, but there is a serious hint there ;) )

    2) It is not about a resource, but it is about something man-made.

    Well if it were not for the exclusion of Israel, Lebanon, Syria, I'd almost say it's a modern day overlay of Alexander's conquered territories, but that little strip being excluded throws me.
