My average brain power cannot compute - How can Saudi Arabia & UAE be on the list, along with UAE & Oman... But not Saudi Arabia & Oman?

since its gdp per capita, uae+saudi & uae+oman are both greater than saudi+oman A+B & A+C are greater than B+C... quite logic, isnt it?

Oman ranks at 32, Saudi Arabia at 14 and UAE at 8.

UAE + SA = 22 (11 avg)
UAE + O = 40 (20 avg)
SA + O = 46 (23 avg)

So because UAE > SA, then the third combination doesn't quite make the cut.

An interesting (and tougher) variant might be this, but excluding Western Europe and the Persian Gulf.

A few countries that are close, but do not share a border: Singapore-Brunei: 5.5; Singapore-Malaysia: 26 (Brunei and Malaysia do border each other and score 26.5); Australia-New Zealand: 26.5; Japan-South Korea: 32. You can see why Singapore (5) and Brunei (6) didn't want to be part of Malaysia (47).

Actually, Singapore did not secede from Malaysia; Malaysia expelled Singapore. Due in part to the anti-Chinese sentiments that led to anti-Chinese riots in Kuala Lumpur several years later.

Sorry but your old-fashioned and bigoted taunt at UK is of course incorrect. People doing these quizzes often hit countries on the off-chance they will be correct, and UK would be hit along with USA, Germany, etc. before trying Ireland.

Yes, more appropriate to mock people from the UK for lacking a sense of humor.
