Dante's Divine Comedy addressed a slightly altered and not-quite-straightforward list of sins. I suggest you change it to refer to Catholics, instead of Dante.

You could just change it to Aquinas. He was working from the standard list and also thought pride was the worst.

You should specify what metric you are using to determine the poorest country. In nominal GDP for instance, San Marino seems to be poorer than Moldova.

You wouldn't use nominal GDP as a measure of a country being rich or poor, as that number doesn't really say anything about that.

Right... total GDP has more to do with the size of a country than it's "wealth"... though sometimes people use this as a way of measuring wealth as it does have something to do with the total available resources of that country. A more common way to measure is GDP per capita. By that metric, San Marino is one of the top 10 wealthiest countries in the world, and Moldova is easily dead last in Europe with onl about $2200 per person. Ukraine is a distant 2nd with $3000 per person. Albania's GDP per capita is $4800, more than twice that of Moldova. Other ways to measure include purchasing power parity, or average wage, or standard of living, but by all of these metrics Moldova winds up last.

Nope. Moldavia is the Latin/English/... name for a historical region in the northeast of Romania and around, Moldova is the Romanian name. Republic of Moldova decided it wants to use Romanian name also internationally, possibly because Moldaviya is also Russian name.

Moldova = Côte d'Ivoire = Timor Leste = Cabo Verde
Moldavia = Ivory Coast = East Timor = Cape Verde

Perhaps when they start lifting weights on stage during the competition and it figures into the judging of a bodybuilding competition. But until then, THEY'RE NOT THE SAME THING!!!

Yeah, no. Weightlifting is about developing your capacity to lift weight. Bodybuilding is about making your body as "perfect" as possible. The weightlifters at the Olympics have plenty of fat on them. Bodybuilders have to maximize all of their muscles -- regardless of their function -- and get their body fat level as close to 0 as possible. A bodybuilder would probably not be a very good weightlifter, and vice versa. They are completely different pursuits.
