Are you considering the percentage as the European part of Russia or the Asian part of Russia? I imagine it is probably the European part but I just wanted to make sure. :)

To put into perspective how massive Asia's population is, Indonesia, which has over a quarter of a BILLION people, doesn't even crack seven percent.

It is not greenlands fault, he never get to join in on all these quizzes. Is always left out, so it is understanding it doesnt get all the names straight of all the countries that do get to play while greenland sits alone in its corner. (Though, wales and scotland sometimes check on him, and though they arent really friends, cyprus sometimes join him)

australia and NZ arent on the same continent. Im not sure what the criteria was. NZ is actually on a separate continent called Zealandia

For these purposes and in general we only use the 7 main continents so New Zealand is in Oceania

Level 50
Sep 22, 2019
I don't think NZ and PNG are on a continent. It should be made clear at the top that you are counting Oceania as a continent. And is PNG in Oceania or Asia (assuming Indonesia is in Asia, although it is not part of continental Asia).

I may not be thinking this through, but I know for a fact that Bangladesh's population is greater than Russia's. And since it has more people, it has a higher percentage of the continent.
+1

We split the Russian population by the European side (~75%) and Asian side (~25%), so neither Asian Russia nor Bangladesh make the cut.
