Either the time has been changed or you are a super fast typer @Kal. Because I was guessing for a few answers and was nowhere close to exhausting all the countries.

Solely for purpose of geographic trivia, I move that all small island nations be reconstituted with their former colonial powers. I mean what could go wrong?

Better yet, just make them all one country. Call it "Islands."

Serious talk: The British actually tried to make all the current tiny Caribbean countries form the West Indies federation before their independence. It collapsed pretty fast, so the British had no choice but to let each of their colonies in the Caribbean become a separate country.

They still have a common currency and some kind of joint supreme court though

I wonder if this was calculated before or after Hurricane Irma, in which Antigua & Barbuda lost half of their country when Barbuda was destroyed, and everyone had to move to Antigua?

Just had the realization the only countries in the Americas with wealthy citizens are the USA and Canada. The closest makes less than 20,000 dollars less than Canada.

Maybe add in the description that territories and overseas regions are excluded or using their own GDP rather than the mainland's. Nitpickers like me would argue that UK, the Netherlands or France should be in the list otherwise ;-)

It would be interesting to include dependencies (i.e. overseas territories) in this quiz (but not required to guess). The Falkland Islands and Bermuda have a much higher GDP per capita than any of these countries.

Interesting. I didn't know that Bermuda had such a high GDP per capita. Strange that their intentional homicide rate is also so high- about 50% higher than the USA.

I thought Costa Rica would be better off than Panama. Looked it up; they're pretty close. Without PPP they'd be on the list above Argentina, and Panama would be lower but still above Costa Rica.

They both have citizenship by investment programmes so that skews the numbers quite a bit.
