Is there a research about that or personal opinion?

Actually the result of going through a lot of different databases on the subject and checking out which countries showed up more often on said databases, and putting a list of my own together based on the statistics i got. It took a while actually. Anyways, i don't think most people have an opinion on what countries are the most famous, since by definition "fame" involves the opinion of more than one person.

I hope you enjoyed.

You should specife for which nationality it is. Because it will not be the same aswers for a french person and for an american person ..

But it's a good quiz :)
