yes. and I missed Cyprus because I was thinking of it being in Europe. but I'm shocked that Kazakhstan, Chile and Malaysia have higher GDP per capita than South Korea. Maybe this is PPP? That always makes these sorts of things kind of screwy.

Was this updated? Bahamas are gone. South Korea is higher than the countries I listed before. There's a caveat about PPP. Though I was still surprised to see Kazakhstan and Seychelles above some other countries like Argentina, Lebanon, and a couple others.

It's a shame that "ROK" is a valid type-in for South Korea elsewhere on this site but not in this quiz, would have got 1 more.
