Shocked Madagascar didn't make the list. Where does it fall? And how does Denmark not make it with the large land mass of Greenland?

I think Madagascar has lots of people (despite the sneaky baobab picture at the top of the quiz). But I think the Denmark / Greenland comment is fair. Either Denmark should make the quiz for North America (split by continent), or the comments should explicitly exclude external territories.

Those are quiver trees from Namibia, not baobabs.

I always feel sad for greenland, always the outcast, not included with greenland and not considered on its own... like that piece of the world doesnt exist.

I agree with Greenland not being counted, since it is a territory and not part of the country. That being said, France should be number one on the least densely populated list for South America, as French Guiana (as much a part of France as Alaska or Hawaii are of the US) has a population density of 3.55 per km^2.

I find it hard to believe that Chad is more densely populated than Gabon, e.g. It just seems geographically impossible. Chad is huge, and it's basically just Tuaregs on camels in the desert!

And yet, when we divide people by area we see that Gabon is in fact less densely populated than Chad.

N'Djamena has a metro area of about 1.5 million. It's not exactly tiny.
