Equatorial Guinea has some very contradictory stats. The government says 1.6 million, but the World Bank and CIA Factbook say around 700,000. ThirdParty, do you want to weigh in?

The US State dept recognizes the existance of the census results, and suggests that they are inflated because of the upcoming elections. It seems that the lower estimates are well supported, at a first glance. http://www.state.gov/j/drl/rls/hrrpt/2002/18181.htm

if you want it closer it should be estonia based on the wikipedia list, estonia as of 2014 has 1,315,819 and equatorial guinea as of 2013 has 1,430,000 but I agree it should be EAST TIMOR with a pop of 1,212,107 as of 2014

The only reason I could propose is that East Timor would probably come under "T" for Timor Leste.

How does Dominica become less guessed than Dominican Republic. I admit I would think of the former before the latter but you literally have to type Dominica to get DR.
