Surprised to discover that Israelis eat more meat than Argentineans and Uruguayans. Runs counter to my intuition. And I thought Danes were bigger on fish!

Whether fish is or isn't meat is entirely subjective. In many languages, the word for "meat" is specifically reserved for non-fish animals, while the equivalent of "flesh" is used for both. Even in English, it's a cultural issue - many catholics for instance don't consider fish to be meat, which is why they can eat on fridays and during lent.

I am very confused. It says "least nuclear weapons", and I thought Israel and North Korea were among the top. Is that just because there is no data collected for them?

Am astonished that Afghanistan and Iraq have supposedly received the most "foreign aid" from the US. It can't have been aid in the form those countries will have wanted and needed, ie education and hospitals. It would have just been military stuff, charged out at the retail rate to look like they gave more "aid".

Not quite true. Israel receives almost all of its aid in form of military assistance. Afghanistan receives much more economic/financial aid than Israel and most countries but also a lot of military aid from the US

Nice quiz! I made my own "Countries that Beat" quizzes recently and I'd love it if people tried them! You'll find them here (Bangladesh) and here (Malaysia).

Pretty good, I like these quizzes.

I noticed a few things though:

"Received the most foreign aid" is very strangely worded - received when?

"Producing ..." is also out of the ordinary in the quiz - the others tend to be worded as "Most desalinated water produced."

"Eat [sic] the most meat" is similar - mostly these just need tidying up, having probably been churned out quickly.
