You could make this more difficult by ranking them according to % of population rather than over all number. I suspect that would change some of the countries lower down the list. At the minute a lot are merely countries with massive populations. Good quiz, I just think that twist would make people think a bit more while taking it.

Seconded. Right now it's almost just another "who has the most people?" quiz.

But it's also sobering to realize Nigeria, ranked seventh in the world in population, isn't even on the list. There are a few other surprising omissions.

Not a single country in Africa. Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Egypt, Sudan, Congo, Morocco, Algeria, Uganda.. in spite of quite large populations, don't show up. Also notably missing is Iran, Iraq, the Philippines and Colombia. I was personally a little surprised to not see Argentina.
If you switched it to % then it would just be almost exactly the same as the quiz about countries with highest life expectancy, which has already been on the front page a few times.

So many reasons why some populations may lose people before they reach 65. Everything from wars both civil and international, pre-natal and ante-natal assistance, availability of medical services and medicines, regional prevalence of diseases such as malaria, percentage of people smoking tobacco and other lung and body disease encouraging habits, lack of proper hygiene and use of parasitic foods....... growing old in some areas is like a lottery.

I'm surprised by the amount of developing countries on this list, but I guess I shouldn't be because it's going by total number and not as a percentage of a total population.

Finished with 0:15 to go...it's scary to think that Nigeria is the seventh largest country in the world and it doesn't even make this quiz.

Not so much scary, but sobering...most countries' average life expectancy is governed by infant mortality rates. These statistics prove that African countries have a real issue with disease (like AIDS) and continuing wars

Maths helps: Couldn't think of Bangladesh organically so took 8 million and multiplied by 20 to get 160 million, which I knew correlated to Bangladesh.
