What does Liechtenstein export? I thought the entire country was one big bank/tax haven.

His Serene Highness Prince Hans Adam II, is Liechtenstein’s current ruler. He’s Europe’s richest monarch, worth about $5 billion. The National Anthem has the same tune as 'God Save the Queen' of UK. Population >36,000. There are more Registered Companies than people. The largest industrial companies in Liechtenstein are Hilti (construction services), Balzers (electro-optical coatings), Hilcona (frozen foods), and Ivoclar-Vivadent (dental medical technology).

Liechtenstein is the largest producer of fake teeth as far as I know.

Hilti (top quality machinery), Neutrik (one of the world leaders for audio-video connectors), and they might be the world leader in dental prosthesis production (or at least, the leader in high quality ones). They tend to do the same things as their Swiss neighbors, namely high quality manufacture, if not exactly cheap (due to strong CHF).

I absolutely can't believe that Brunei is not on this list: huge oil exports divided by a small population. More per capita than Ireland??

I'll second this. I thought Qatar and Brunei would be #1 and #2.

You'd think that I'd know UAE = country and Dubai = city. Still was very surprised not to find Dubai on the list and missed UAE. ARGH!

Wow - how hard is this? No obvious pattern seems to emerge. I got 6 but would never have guessed Lichtenstein - learning something every day!

I think the pattern is: rich country + relatively small population. But I must admit that Liechtenstein was a bit of a puzzle to me too, had no idea that they produce anything. Would've rather guessed Luxembourg etc.

The pattern is countries with large amounts of exports and low populations.

Or rather expensive exports/relatively small population. I don't know if some of these countries export anything else than oil.

What does Ireland export except beer in sooty barrels?

level 78
Jul 17, 2018
As of July 2018 sooty barreled beer seems fairly low on the list as it doesn't make the top ten: 1.Pharmaceuticals: US$38.2 billion (28.3% of total exports) 2.Organic chemicals: $23.8 billion (17.7%) 3.Optical, technical, medical apparatus: $13.8 billion (10.2%) 4.Electrical machinery, equipment: $9 billion (6.7%) 5.Perfumes, cosmetics: $8.4 billion (6.2%) 6.Machinery including computers: $7.4 billion (5.5%) 7.Aircraft, spacecraft: $4.8 billion (3.5%) 8.Other chemical goods: $3.7 billion (2.8%) 9.Meat: $3.5 billion (2.6%) 10.Dairy, eggs, honey: $2.7 billion (2%) http://www.worldstopexports.com/irelands-top-10-exports/

Why thank you, that could've easily gone to Google.
I further thank you for not using Wikipedia. One can only assume their article on sooty beer was written and edited by 35,612 people and is unreliable.

The scope of the pharma industry in Ireland pretty remarkable. They were hit so hard in the crash and have really bounced back.

I put in Singapore. It didn't take it... but I got 50% credit. How does that work??

50% means you've taken the quiz more than once and got it right half of the time. If it didn't take Singapore you probably had a typo when entering.
