It's complicated but French Guiana is an overseas region while Saint Martin is on overseas collectivity. Its similar to how Hawaii is a state but Guam is a territory.

More likes doesn't always mean you're correct about something. Sometimes the ignorant outnumber the well-informed.

You only made the list because you border Germany. If there was a quiz for crappiest countries that border each other you'd also make that because you border Belgium :)

Did you call the Netherlands and Belgium the crappiest countries because you wanted to be first one to do something for once?

Even the quiz itself shows how nonsensical scrumpyones statement is. Germany has 9 neighbours, and the Netherlands is one of only three appearing on this quiz.

It is in the top 10% of largest economies while only being 131st largest in size. (most of the smaller ones are islands) so yea, not much credit to your statement.

Edit: looked at gdp without ppp, with ppp, it would be more like top 15% Still, that is being in the big leagues imo.

Besides even if belgium was crappy, which it isnt at all, netherlands wouldnt be on that list, it would raise the average right of the list by it's uncrappiness ;) If there was an uncrappy list, that pair would actually make it quite high up the list. I would think. As would norway-sweden.

What does scrumpy mean? I never heard the word before and when I searched for it the only thing I found was a kind of cider in England.

Considering that Italy is on the list, I was surprised to not see the Vatican on here. I thought they were super wealthy.

GNP is a very bad indicator of wealthiness. But even if we could obtain a more worthy indicator, the Vatican would never qualify if it wasn't a per capita ranking.

yeah I guess I didn't consider some countries are very small in addition to being poor. There's also one pair in central Asia and another in South America.

why? there are so many countries on here that border one of the listed ones, but arent on here. They only make it on if they have a large economy. For instance mongolia didnt even make it eventhough china is at the top of the list. It isnt a quiz about who nenigbours large economies. Both countries count. Netherlands is nr 17 worldwide btw so yea netherlands definitely should be there..

United States - Mexico: 6.5

United States - Canada: 9.5

I was like "wait, Canada is poorer than Mexico??!" Then after a while I realized it wasn't per capita.
