Huh, I was somewhat expecting China to be present in more than one category. I guess manufacturing is where they're stronger

We tried to avoid too many repeats. China leads the world in a huge number of agricultural and resource-extraction categories. It would be a boring quiz if you just guessed "China" for half of the answers.

Have you seen the Borat version of the Kazkh anthem played at a gold medal ceremony of a shooting competition held in Kuwait? If not, you're in for a treat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ou3lW32EXL0

Cork is basically a chunk of dead plant cells, unfortunately, I don't know how they make it. They plug wine bottles with it though.

It's bark from a species of oak called predictably "cork oak". Portugal produces over 80% I think.

Vigorous trees, too. If I'm not mistaken, the oldest cork tree still in use was planted in the late 1700s.

I once tutored an ESL student from the Mexican state of Michoacán. Even though it's not a particularly rich area of Mexico, he told me that it produces more avocados than any other part of Mexico, and is called the "Avocado Capital of the World." In fact, it accounts for 92% of Mexico's avocado production! I find that pretty amazing.

Here to lodge my formal protest at labeling what comes out of Indonesia as cinnamon. They produce cassia, true cinnamon is produced mostly in Sri Lanka and parts of India.

What about the British Empire? I think it leaves the USSR and Yugoslavia in the dust.
