Always strange to remember that Nigeria, not particularly big for an African country, has such a huge population. Probably because many larger ones (Sudan, DRC) have large swathes of desert or rainforest which are low density, but still.

Agreed. Whenever I miss a question I also revoke the answer's existence. I have been doing much better on Jetpunk quizzes since Harry Potter stopped existing.
