The HDI DPRK is 0.733 according to https://www.unescap.org/sites/default/files/wp-09-02.pdf. Education is a factor and the education system is well developed, universal, and compulsory. Literacy is 99% with the 1% illiterate probably very elderly women. Even life expectancy is quite high. It's 157 according to the list.

They have calculated HDI for African countries. They're all near the bottom. You're missing the point of the quiz.

Very interesting quiz. Was a little surprised to see that Yemen has such a low index, I had the idea the whole Arabian Peninsula region was wealthy because of oil - I suppose the current conflict in Yemen has just exposed long term socioeconomic problems that had previously been little-publicised?

Yemen does not have much oil, and what it did have is running out.

Though oil poor next to any of it's nearby Arabian neighbors, Yemen's oil reserves are not negligible. However, the country has long been rife with conflict and corruption as it has played host to civil wars and proxy wars between Saudi Arabia and Egypt and now Saudi Arabia and Iran, and those oil reserves have never been fully exploited.

Yes but it's an extreme problem in Yemen. The Saudis aren't helping the situation.

Tried out the way more difficult to spell Kyrgyzstan but never thought to also try Tajikistan. Blimey!
