tribalism gets my vote. An argument can be made for greed, but IMO not a very good one. A lack of empathy is another strong contender, but tribalism breeds that more than anything else. Money and oil are much further down the list, I think.

Under half got Nigeria. Seems people have rather short memories, don't they? RIP Ken Saro-Wiwa, and shame on the oil producers who wreaked environmental havoc on the Ogoni homelands.

Yeah, none of the ones that are there really surprise me, but I really would have expected Oman to be there. Iran too, although that's probably the sanctions.

Bahrain was the first Gulf country to develop it's oilfields and they're basically all used up now. That's why they're not here. Oman's oil fields were never as impressive as those of some of their neighbors, and they were developed later than most of their neighbors, but they still produce 900,000 b/d, just behind Azerbaijan. I was most surprised to not see Indonesia on the list, they're even close to Azerbaijan with 982,000 b/d.

P.S. Colombia has recently joined the top 20. Pushing Azerbaijan off.

I'm afraid not. It is expressly prohibit under US Federal Code 4569.152. Please wait there, and the FBI will be there shortly. Thank you for your cooperation.

Azerbaijan, huh? It's amazing that the Baku oil fields still haven't run dry. No wonder Hitler wanted to capture them!
