I figured that was the trick, but I couldn't remember WHICH countries weren't in the EU. I had to systematically guess all of the European countries before I finally landed on the 2 in the quiz.

There are a lot more than four European countries not in the EU: Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, San Marino, Monaco, Vatican, Iceland, Norway, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Kosovo, Moldova, Albania, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, (Turkey). And soon (at the time of going to press!) the UK. So at least 17 (depends on whether one includes Turkey or not).

Funny quiz! Those EU-Switzerland figures are truly enormous. I guess it's because of cross-border integration of the region's industries? German electronics exported as inputs into Swiss lifts, trams and clocks, which are then re-exported into the EU, etc. etc. etc.

It surprises me that Bangladesh is missing from the list, given that (at least anectotically) all EU clothes are made in Bangladesh.

It's far from all, and also those clothes are made and sold for dirt cheap with workers being paid barely subsistence wages.

Surprised Australia doesn't make imports. I swear they would've sent over SOME wool or something

Australia's main export markets are in Asia and the Americas. Focus has shifted from Europe since WW2. Since the EU was formed, bureaucracy and political factors have meant that those markets are hardly worth the effort. Plenty of superfine wool does go to Italian mills, but often early stage processing is performed in non-EU countries

The UK is still in the EU and was in 2015, so should not be on this quiz.

Yes, and we certainly would like for the UK to stay as member state of the EU. It would be a huge loss if you really disappear from the EU map.
