Lets play guess the map!
Why are these countries coloured so?
World War 3eee
Identically named currencies have the same colour.
Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner.
You're missing Finland in the Eurozone. Also doesn't Andorra use euroes unofficially? And Kosovo but it's not even shown on the map.
Obvious answer: a Serb did it.
Or just under 2/3 of the coutries in the world...
The map is from before 2003.
Guess the Map!
Spoiler What could this be..? :
How much Eko likes a certain country?
Percentage of the population that speaks English (including people who speak it badly and people who speak the obscure Magyar variant )?
Just a question (to everyone here), are we the only ones that call the british pound, sterling lira ? Just like the turkish lira/italian lira/etc.
EDIT: @ekolite: anti-communism !
I don't think America would rank so highly
The english language is not completely unrelated
Heretic Cata: No, the French call it a livre except, as my old French teacher told me, the French community in London, who, rather amusingly, say, un quid.
Ekolite: % of schools that teach English or something like that?
Like the english language, communism is also vaguely related.
Probably pretty widespread since Pound is, litterally, referring to the unit of measure many countries likely refer to it by the name of the unit of measure in their country. In fact the Lira, Livre and other currency units were identical to the pound historically, all being defined as a pound of silver.
Plus the symbol is still based on the latin Libra and the Lebanese and Syrian Pounds are called Lira apparently.
Brazilians call the pound 'libras' Also, percentage of English speakers who hate communism?
Nope. It's not a political or linguistical map.
What percentage of the population of certain countries are secretly wizards?
Separate names with a comma.
