@Aaron197 has asked me to delete political comments from this quiz, and I've done so. I'm not opposed to debating the merits of immigration, but I did find most of the comments on both sides of the argument to be low effort and not worth preserving. Don't post about politics on this quiz. In general, don't post about politics on JetPunk at all unless you are willing to put the time into making a nuanced and well-reasoned argument that, at a minimum, uses correct grammar and punctuation.

Only guessed Somalia because of Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Amazed that there are almost a million Moroccans and Turks in such a small area country.

And most, if not nearly all of them, inside the triangle of Amsterdam-Rotterdam/Hague-Utrecht.

@WillemLAif That's patently untrue. There are definitely regions in the far north and south where not many people of Turkish or Moroccan descent live, but the east-west split is honestly not as large as you might think.

There's a similar ratio of Guyanese people living in the United States.

There has been a short period of time when there were more Surinam people in the Netherlands, than there were in Suriname!

I assumed Suriname would be on the list, but not near the top. Are there any people left in Suriname?

Using a dot rather than comma to separate the numbers is a nice Dutch twist on this one!

Surprising that there are more immigrants from tiny Suriname than ginormous Indonesia.

When Suriname became independent, people in Suriname were thinking they could not migrate to the Netherlands in the future, resulting in a migration boom in the years around the independence.
