Gaza Strip isn't a country, even according to those who think that Palestine is a country.

took this again. Beat my last score, still only got 20, and didn't remember that Gaza Strip was on here. It seems like a lot of African countries and maybe some Caribbean/Pacific island ones aren't included here. And, in Saudi Arabia where I live, if you include women... I'm sure unemployment is well over 20%. But... I know sometimes the way they calculate unemployment rate is strange. Like in the USA it's really only those who are applying for unemployment benefits, not the actual number of unemployed.

Yes, unfortunately I am only able to use the information I find and not what other individuals tell me :) Though I do agree that come countries I thought would be on here are not.

I'm glad you commented on this--I had been meaning to change the Gaza Strip answer so that entering "Israel", who 'owns' the territory, will be an acceptable answer. I'll make that change now!
