I think Montenegro was independent much later than East Timor. East Timor gained independence in 2002 whilst Montenegro gained independence in 2006, after a referendum.

Five stars. I spent a good two minutes on the first question. I was thinking per capita and tried every middle eastern, European micrornation and banking centric country I could think of. Then I thought I might as try my home country because by some measures it ranks pretty highly. When I saw the other answer I slapped myself in the head when I realized it was total GDP.

Can someone please explain to me how the percent correct does not go straight down the list as in the yellow box quizzes you must get the previous question correct in order to advance to the next question. I am asking how more people can get say for instance the fourth question correct than the amount that got the third question correct?

You don't have to go straight down the list. You can click on any of the blank boxes or move the arrow keys and start anywhere you like.
