Nice 19/20 - I could not remember on 1,389 $! I said to me: "It isn't possilble" So it is some small modern country with strong economy or some developing country with weak economy, but with big population. So I tried west europe countries: Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Austria with oil: Iraq, Singapor, Bruney, Kuwait, Qutar, Saudi Arabia, United arab emiras, much of the population: Malaysia, Nigeria, Ukraine, Egypt, Philliphines... And I forgot the Canada = big area, but low population =o)

On the list of countries by proven oil reserves, Kuwait is 6th and Qatar is 14th. Singapore indeed isn't on that list, but it makes a lot of money by refining oil. So, Mufi315's list is very much understandable. :)

This quiz does use GDP. The difference is that for exchange rate it uses Purchasing Power Parity, rather than fiat rates. Why? Because nations manipulate their currency. (China, cough).

Agree with Kristoffer. Just because a currency's value has been intentionally manipulated doesn't render null the effects of that manipulation.

Exactly. So the fact that that manipulation doesn't render the effects of that manipulation null means that PPP, which does, gives a more meaningful measure.

It's not at all more meaningful. PPP is flat out stupid to use when comparing GDP. I'm too lazy to explain why again. Good for comparing wages. Stupid for comparing national GDP. It is not in any way immune from the vagaries of currency fluctuations it's actually affected by it quite a lot in addition to many other things that nominal GDP is not.

According to Wikipedia, the economy of Nauru, "is primarily based on phosphate mining, offshore banking, and coconut products... Aid, chiefly from Australia, Taiwan and New Zealand, keeps the Nauruan economy afloat." Truth is certainly more amusing than fiction.

2 things confuse me here: 1) Your choice of PPP instead of nominal. 2) The text on the front page saying "In a few more years, we might have a new #1." According to GDP PPP, China is the #1 and will remain there for decades.

D'oh! A few years happened, and now we do have a new #1, (at least in terms of PPP). As to PPP vs nominal, I think PPP is better because currency fluctuations matter less. The Canadian dollar recently declined from about $1 USD to about 75 cents. Using nominal GDP, this would mean that Canada's GDP declined by 25%. But of course this never happened. The actual amount of goods and services that Canada produced didn't vary nearly as much.

level 71
Mar 1, 2016
But the value of those goods and services decreased substantially, as did Canadians' ability to acquire goods and services from outside of Canada, as did the Canadian government's ability to pay debts etc. This all has very real effects of the country's economic "size" in an international sense.

And, while, yes, nominal GDP is effected by currency fluctuations, PPP is hardly immune from that, as currency values have a great impact on the cost of goods and services in a country for a variety of different reasons. So, nominal GDP is affected by the vagaries of currency fluctuation, and PPP is affected by that, plus a whole set of other vagaries placed on top of that, such as tax and tariff fluctuations, wage fluctuations, oil price fluctuations, and fluctuations in the price of a cheeseburger.

An interesting solution would be to have both measures in one quiz. I'm sure there's a quiz that does this by nominal GDP already.
