Countries Similar to US States by Population

Map of the United States has been filled with country flags. Each state represents a flag of a country that has a similar population number to it. Can you name all of these countries?
To avoid repeating countries, for some states the second most similar country by population was included instead

I'd be great if they merged. The union could have an awesome flag (Suriname) and the best license plates (Wyoming). All hail the Federation of Wyiname.

I'm somewhat surprised by how underpopulated some states are or maybe they're not and that's just because I'm Chinese

Great quiz!

This quiz is AWESOME!

How did you make it, I have an idea similar to this quiz but very different ;)

also, there is 30 nominations but only 176 plays, which is pretty darn good!

Ah, I don't really like asking for help but I kind of need help... I really haven't learned much about inkscape yet. How would I import images into the map and clip them? If you want I can send you a collaboration thing so you can see what I'm trying to say.

The most advanced thing I've used is the dot placer XD

Copy paste an image from Wiki Commons or any other source onto your SVG, put the image over a country / subdivision shape and select both shape and image at once while holding shift. Then go to Object -> Clip -> Set

Make sure that the answers are connected to their paths. Remember that the paths have to be borders around the images, not the images themselves

Really goes to show how large and small countries compare to state populations. I never thought yemen had such a similar population to a single US state.

This is a really great quiz. I do think it would be good to keep it to the country with the closest population, even if there is overlap, as that would provide a truer comparison (by which we could learn with more accuracy). But I suppose there are enough countries, probably with similar populations, that it's not a big deal. Either way, very imaginative and well-executed quiz.

Thanks a lot for your kind words! I was thoroughly thinking about which countries to include so that the map is accurate enough, despite there being no repetitions. Therefore I made sure that all countries are very close in population to the states they represent. I believe this map already shows a good comparison of state and country populations. I decided to not repeat any countries in order to make the quiz hopefully more fun and challenging, since there are more unique answers.

Very good quiz, got all in 3:16. I think it would be interesting to see a comparison of GDP/HDI of US states with other countries as well.
