Gah!! I gave up on South America way too easily. I put in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Chile. I got none of those so I moved on...

Anyone who guessed Peru was just listing countries for a professional typist to enter. Or, 28% of people taking this quiz are Chinese Peruvian.

There is actually a lot of Asian communities in Peru. For instance, Alberto Fujimori who was Peru's dictator for ten years was from Japanese origin. So, it would have been possible to guess Peru. Venezuela, however, would apply more to your comment

I surprisingly managed to guess them all. I got Peru because as Dragenum says it has Asian communities, and I got Venezuela because I saw a documentary on the country a few of years ago talking about the major oil deals between Chinese companies and the government there. Difficult, but not impossible.

I've been to Peruvian restaurants and had "arroz chaufa" which is like Chinese-inspired Peruvian fried rice. Then was informed of the sizable Chinese community in Peru. Btw arroz chaufa is great

Yep, there are tons of Chinese restaurants in Peru. If you've been there and ventured outside the obvious tourist places you'd probably know it from that at least.

It's on the Pacific Ocean, and I guessed it along with Colombia, Ecuador and Chile. Not much of a stretch.

Why are some quizzes eligible for points but others not? What is the determining factor?

Yes, in May 2016, although either country name still earns you the point.

I'm absolutely stunned it isn't more in Africa. A friend of mine lives in Kikwit, DRC, and says there are Chinese people everywhere... they are building roads and infrastructure in exchange for lucrative natural resources contracts (the DRC is one of the richest countries in the world with natural resources). I'll leave the politics out of it but he says there are whole sections of Kinshasa that are essentially a Chinatown.

You could have a city the size of Cincinnati full of nothing but Chinese people, and it still wouldn't be enough to make it on this list. The countries on here have some *very* substantial Chinese populations. There are no doubt many Chinese workers in a lot of African countries, but not enough to touch these numbers.

I tried a lot of african countries too, but I was thinking about the illegal wildlife trade of animals and parts of animals. Apparently there are not a lot of hunters, just a lot of buyers. Sadly, there are people that still believe in such things as magical cures through keratin and bones.

Too much time. Comments show that 4 minutes turn it into a guessing & speed typing quiz. Cut to 2:30 maximum, please.

With 4 minutes, only 3% are getting them all, so we think the time is OK.
