Quite a lot of countries from elsewhere on the list too, also not all the Central/South American countries are there. So I'd say your alternative name fails.

I was actually surprised at how many Central and South American countries did not make the cut... and most of these countries are from Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and Pacific Island nations so what are you talking about?

Rude comments aside, it's a good question. According to this it's 55.6% Catholic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_Church_by_country

Wait, why is Cuba on this list? There was just a story on radiolab recently about how people would go throw eggs at the churches to show how they were good communists now, and not religious anymore.

Apparently, more than half of Cubans don't give up traditions and religion in their private life just to please the regime (where even Castro has considered returning to Catholicism).

But you said the key word, "good" communists. If they were bad communists they'd be throwing Molotov cocktails instead of eggs.

I'm really surprised at Belgium. Given the relationship between the Netherlands and Belgium and the bitter experience the Netherlands had with Spain, I expected Belgium to be majority Protestant, as is the Netherlands..

The historic line in Europe separating Catholics from Protestants ran within southern Netherlands - the south of the Netherland is predominantly Catholic while the rest of the country is/was Protestant. As a result, all of Belgium is mostly Catholic.

After the 80 years' war the southern providences (Belgium) remained Spanish while the northern once became independent (Netherlands). Most protestants subsequently fled the south in favor of the north.

Any time there's a little breakaway country somewhere there's a good chance these days that they profess a different religion than the people in the country they broke away from. Those "coexist" t-shirts haven't really caught on most places.
