2 questions about oil? and questions where they were 15th and 22th? Aren't there other things they ve beaten more countries in?

I admit, I wouldn't know middle east is not my area of expertise (though I only missed one ;) ), just my opinion that if possible I would change these 3 questions.

I'll have a think and see if I can come up with some suggestions (or maybe others will have some aswell), All I can think of right now, (so won't be the greatest..) are to do with the name. Like length, amount of words

seems fine to include to me. How about traffic fatalities per capita? I think Saudi Arabia is pretty high on that list. And I read that they are #1 in terms of chicken consumption per capita.

I think it's just because the supposed world record temperature in libya hasn't really been accurately proven

Amazing how Saudi Arabia remains an ally of the Western powers despite its government's brutality and repression, while a far more democratic country like Venezuela gets demonized. Why, it's almost like the concerns about "human rights" aren't entirely sincere...

The quiz is about Saudi Arabia. So is the comment. (That said, I'm not sure Venezuela is all that great, @canadry.)

I wouldn't call Venezuela "far more democratic" than Saudi Arabia.

It's not hard to be more democratic than a country that is not democratic.

What kind of repression are we talking? Israel is a closer ally to the West and they are worse in terms of human rights violations
