For this quiz, the population of Russia is split into two continents. I assumed that the percentage of Christians is the same in the Asian and European parts of Russia.

Percentages are of course different, but I haven't yet found a neat enough source to put South Korea in front of Asian Russia.

Here is a map of orthodox christians by federal subject, you can click on others on the left.

It's a very interesting research/opinion poll, with some cross-section of world view and religion/ethnicity, but I haven't found a good list yet, only top/bottom 10 federal subjects are listed at each religious affiliation, I'd have to check data for each FS to get full info. Maybe some day :)

This is a fun quiz, but I think measuring by percentage gives you a better feel of which are the more Christian countries. For this quiz, populous countries will obviously sit at the top.

It should be said that I think the definition of a ,,Christian'' has kinda lost its meaning here in Germany. Many many People say they're Christian but I feel like everybody here is just Christian by default and only a small minority actually believes in God and the bible and everything. I've met many ,,Christians'' here, but I've bearly ever met someone who believed in it.

Definitely the case in the UK. Church attendance is at 6% and falling last I heard. Doesn't exactly tally with a country that is supposedly 60% Christian.

This depends a lot on the source and research method. If you just ask "religion: _____" you get what you described. Others are more detailed, asking more about your beliefs in god/other things, membership in a church, visiting church (or other place of course), participation, prayer etc.

I get what you mean with "by default". When a baby or young child is christened it hardly has a choice. And of course you don't build your own opinion about it until way later in life. I left the church when I was old enough to decide for myself. A lot of people probably don't do that because they want to get married in a church even if they don't believe in god.

I have a German friend who told me that Germans who are Christian are forced to pay a special tax to the government to support the church and church schools and daycare facilities which also get government help. She said many of them are formally renouncing their "official Christianity" in order to escape the tax, but they are still attending church.

I agree. The only way to get this is to ask a leading question ( "what is your religion?") and also allow parents to fill in the form on behalf of their children (including babies who can't possibly understand any religion enough to follow it). And on top of that people need to consider Christianity a cultural tradition rather than a set of beliefs.
