"A desert is a barren area of landscape where little precipitation occurs and consequently living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life"(Wikipedia). I don't know the source used by the creator, but many parts of Canada may well fit in the definition. Anyway, it's clear that a desert doesn't have to be full of sand, the biggest desert of the world is Antarctica.

Exactly. A desert is defined by lack of precipitation. Not by the presence of camels and sand.

The Canadian territories are largely tundra, which is a type of desert I believe. Just a cold one

This is a fun quiz, well done. Too bad there isn't a way to highlight each top five by itself so when you type in a country it doesn't fill-in every relevant answer. Like it though.

Another good quiz. I do think they could do with a bit more time as some of the categories aren't that straight forward and require a bit of thinking.

Took me a while to understand why the likes of Merckx, Indurain or Anquetil weren't accepted. Turns out they aren't countries.

Singapore, Monaco, etc. aren't on the list for least forest? Even by percentage, I was sure that both would be there.

Good point about Monaco - it doesn't appear on the source. Singapore has 3% forest cover, 10x more than Mauritania

Even if you count the papal gardens? I expected Nauru on the forest list, but no, it's surprisingly green these days after they carved all the phosphate out.

Indians may be svelte in their own country, but I can ascertain that they most certainly fall victim to the curse of the increasing waistline in Australia.
