Kind of strange. The guy on the picture actually is German and Protestantism was "founded" in Germany. I guess, you're not that much in religion, are you? ;-)

It's because part of Germany is Roman Catholic. It's historically, there were many smaller kingdoms and duchies in Germany a some of them were catholic (Bavaria...) and some of them were protestant (Prussia...)

Great quiz, but why not make it for the whole world? Difficult to obtain reliable data?

I would say that the data here is not very reliable anyway. At least the fraction of Scandinavian people, who actually know they are protestants are way lower than the percentage given here

I can't speak for the rest of Scandinavia, but in Iceland you are a member of the Church of Iceland (Íslands Þjóðkirkjan) by default unless you register differently with the government, and a portion of your income tax called sóknargjald goes to the church you are registered. It used to be that if the sóknargjöld of people who had given up their membership in the national church and not taken any other membership went to the University of Iceland. The last I checked, sóknargjald was about 850 kr. per month (about 7€, $8 US, £6.20). Given that a half-litre of mass-production beer in a bar in Reykjavík costs about 1200 kr., it is not that much money.

Seems strange that Australia and New Zealand aren't on here. On Wikipedia, in Australia Anglican + "Other Christian" = ~29% while in New Zealand, those + Presbyterian = ~35%. Catholicism is a separate category. I accept that "other Christian" may include Orthodox or other non-Protestant non-Catholic denominations but I'm sure it'd still be high enough to qualify for this list. According to the CIA World Factbook, Protestant in Australia is 23.1%, while in New Zealand Christian - Catholic is ~33%, and even minus all "Other Christian" as well is still ~23%.
