Good quiz, as usual. I got 15/22 and learned a couple things. I had no idea Equatorial Guinea had such a high GDP/capita. I tried the DRC for lowest GDP/capita.. but it did not accept "Congo," "DR Congo," or "DRC".. so ended up wasting a lot of time on that and ultimately missing it. Literacy rate: surprised again about Equatorial Guinea, Burkina Faso not a big surprise but there are so many contenders in Africa for low literacy rate I didn't get around to guessing that one. For the corruption/temperature/elevation questions for some reason I got all the most and missed all the least... for coldest I guessed Tanzania since I figured it was cold on top of Mt Kiliminjaro, but Morocco makes sense. For lowest I didn't think of Ethiopia... most of that country (like Addis) is pretty high up in the mountains giving it a pleasant and temperature climate year-round even so near the equator... but I guess the northern and southern extremes of the country are pretty low.

I see Congo is guessed 0% of the time so I'm not the only one that missed it for this reason I'm sure...

I think they have lots of oil in Equatorial Guinea, that's why they're comparatively and thus alphabetized.
