Quite surprised by how little of the earth shares this specific climate type. I looked into it, and it turns out that "tropical monsoon" areas, which have a more seasonal rainfall, cover a much bigger area, which is why countries like Venezuela weren't included.

Some of those countries are pretty small. Can't have 100,000 km squared if your nation isn't that large.
