Same except for Jordan. I tried Israel and Lebanon and then gave up on that region... I also didn't bother to try Djibouti after Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia failed.

This quiz is about which countries get the least precipitation. Precipitation basically means 'rainfall', so having water around it won't mean anything. Yes, it is an island nation, however this does not mean that it will have a high precipitation rate.

Chad and Mali have quite a bit of jungle in the south. Kazakhstan has the Aral Sea, which regularly floods the entire country when it rains.
