It's a little surprising that you'd use PPP rather than nominal GDP as a measure of the size of an economy. I've always thought of it more as a measure of the individual wealth of citizens in a country.

yes that makes much more sense. PPP is an interesting (though hardly definitive) way of examining things like per capita wealth, income equality, average salaries and so on. As a way of measuring absolute GDP it really makes no sense at all.

PPP has a better correlation with life expectancy than nominal GDP and also has fewer fluctuations year to year.

That's interesting about life expectancy - I'll have to check that out. But if you want a dulling of nominal fluctuations, using constant dollars, rather than current, does the trick. PPP does a good job, sometimes, of showing who can afford rice and tomatoes produced locally, for example, but says nothing about an ability to purchase goods internationally, such as paying university tuition abroad, travelling abroad, purchasing a Hyundai or iPhone, or importing concrete. All GDP numbers simplify economic reality in misleading ways, but PPP also ignores these things and thus greatly minimizes the still massive income inequalities between countries.

I think the reason they don't do that is to not anger the northern half of the country, which is mostly Muslim.

You got me, Kalbahamut. I always try to learn new words when I can, and when I saw "pentactagenarians" I thought I had my new word for the day. I typed it into Google search only to learn that Google has never heard of it either. Then I thought that maybe you meant pentagenarian, so I looked that up only to learn that doesn't exist, either. Someone in their 50s is called a quinquagenarian, so in a roundabout way, you did lead me to my new word of the day. Thank you. (Which just gave me an idea for a new quiz.)

A pentactagenarian would be someone who was 5000 years old. Probably not very commonly used in conversation.

numerical multiplier

I invented the term, thinking that if an octogenarian is in their 80s and a nonagenarian is in their 90s then a pentactagenarian would be in their 5000s.
