@buck.. I know you're American. I know which region of which country ander lives in, that OzChris is Australian, and that drunkengandalf lives a block away from Marie Curie's lead-lined casket in Paris. I've got some pretty strong suspicions about QuizMaster's precise location in the USA. Does all this make you sad?

tribalism gets my vote. An argument can be made for greed, but IMO not a very good one. A lack of empathy is another strong contender, but tribalism breeds that more than anything else. Money and oil are much further down the list, I think.

Bahrain was the first Gulf country to develop it's oilfields and they're basically all used up now. That's why they're not here. Oman's oil fields were never as impressive as those of some of their neighbors, and they were developed later than most of their neighbors, but they still produce 900,000 b/d, just behind Azerbaijan. I was most surprised to not see Indonesia on the list, they're even close to Azerbaijan with 982,000 b/d.

P.S. Colombia has recently joined the top 20. Pushing Azerbaijan off.

Interesting! I made the same quiz about a month ago using the information published by the U.S. Govt. Energy Information Administration. Whilst the 2016 Top 20 named the same countries, the order & data are considerably different, especially for USA and Russia. The only partial explanation I can give is that EIA data include "gas liquids", and maybe CIA do not. Any experts got any ideas?
