It's a scale, colors included. No other information.
Red: Biggest consumer of Coca-Cola
Well, as I said in the last thread. Cuba being the only non-american red is a big hint.
Also how can it be off-topic in an off-topic thread?
Edit: Swink Canada has more mcdonalds then Cuba. So that is definetly wrong. Also we just had one about mcdonalds why would there be a second?
Well a big thing to answer would be what Cuba and the US have in common, or how Paraguay is different from the rest of South America.
I should note that this is only for data that I could find. The white countries have values, but I don't know what they are.
Health care costs?
Do you have to pay for health care in Communism? Really, I'm asking as it pertains to the graph.
I was thinking along these lines; percentage of GDP spent on health care, percentage spent per capita?
Either health care costs or something related like compensation to doctors would make a lot of sense, I think the latter is less likely though but we don't have the justifications between "red" and "yellow" - and it could clearly trend down from there in raw terms.
Though Cuba is known for having wide access to healthcare and measures well in "preventative" terms as well as general public health, so that comparison to the USA isn't perfect but in pure cost that still might be it.
I'd also note it's not quite just Cuba but appears to be a couple other places in the Caribbean that are red, but this just doesn't look like a map for production or consumption of some good, and I can't really explain what others have pointed out like in South America with another idea.
You guys are waaaaay off. Cold. Arctic. Frozen.
Something to do with baseball.
Foreign aid? (if you assign a monetary value to Cuba sending of doctors, maybe...)
Doubt it, Japan is pea-soupy and so is Australia; South Korea is green. They should be higher and we should be much lower. I think.
None of you guys are close so far.
Red = ~1959
Purple = 1990~
last declaration of Martial Law? Allthough Probably incorrect.
Cuba had one in 1959
Zimbabwe had one during Magubess continuous reign
Canada had one when Trudeau was in power (War Measures act which was early 70's)
America might have had one. Not sure.
Ex-Yugoslav countries had one when Tito died and later when it started collapsing 1980 and 1990
Thought I was wrong. I guess I should have checked Europe and Asia, rather then make my conclusions based on America and Africa.
The years suggest that it has something to do with communism. I guess that the middle colours are decades: 60s, 70s and 80s.
Are Greenland and Denmark on purpose different colour?
Separate names with a comma.
