Maps Reveal What You Country Is Number 1 At

Africa

All of the amazing number ones you're about to see have come from David McCandless' world map of International Number Ones.

Why? "Because every country is the best at something".

Who would have thought that Zambia would be the capital for female entrepreneurs?

Europe

Europe

According to the Europe section, it would appear that those Belarusians certainly love a drink! The United Kingdom is the home of billionaires, and if you're in the market for a new kidney, perhaps it might be worthwhile to try Croatia.



Asia

Interestingly, Papua New Guinea is home to diversity and perhaps that's down to the myriad of different languages and ethnic groups per capita. Just off this map, Julian Assange and his Australian mates are number one when it comes to data breaches.

However, we find one part of this more shocking than any other; Pakistan. Seriously? Gay porn?!

South America

South America

Columbia is the home of happiness ....which is nice for them. Curiously, while Brazil being number one in sugar doesn't surprise us, it's neighboring Bolivia which takes the number one spot for Brazil nuts. We kind of guessed that cocaine would be on the map somewhere. Can you find it?



North America

North America

...And last but certainly not least, in North America, it's all about Facebook, spam emails, and of course, lemons!

In compiling this list, McCandless used information available from a variety of sources which included the United Nations, CIA, Guinness World Records, and the World Bank. The stats are per capita and therefore, collated as a percentage of the population. There are some countries which we excluded as the stats were not available.
