Quiz live for ~6 months, and featured for 4+ hours with no comments. Makes me wonder what the longest a featured quiz has gone without comment is?

Dude, didn't you know that today you weren't supposed to comment anything? I'm a moderator of the contest, however, and so I am allowed to comment. Please no more

Point one: Don't trust data from FAO, on this quiz or any other. The agency passively accepts and reports whatever BS member states provide. Point two: As in so many other quizzes, this would be far more relevant if done per capita, not by country, which are for the most part randomly determined units of geography.

That wouldn't make the quiz more relevant.

I'm sure certain countries report inaccurate info. Venezuela and Argentina are likely offenders. But unless there are better sources, this is a good start. Government data from many countries is often quite accurate.

Yes, "certain countries" report inaccurate data, unfortunately most often those of greatest concern to the issue of food security. I've been reviewing FAO data on this subject for years, and in many cases I think we would be better off simply knowing that we don't know. No, this is not a "good start."

The +$1.23B country must be lucky that it has a neighbour that imports so much.

not to cast doubt on your handle but, do you mean exports?

Yeah, to know that particular country is a net importer (and their northern neighbour is a net exporter) really doesn't fit the narrative. I'm aware this is just agricultural products, but it is interesting to see.

I'm surprised Hungry wasn't on the list.

With as big as Russia is, you would think that it could be a little more self sustaining.
