International Number Ones 2016: What Is Your Country Best At? Porn? Murder? Find Out

A new map has revealed what every country is best at. For instance, the map ranks Pakistan as best at gay porn and Honduras for murder, while Libya is in for fat children. Nigeria, often ranked for undesirable things, however, claims a positive spot, ranking for Scrabble players. The United Kingdom is for the billionaires, Togo for unhappiness, and Sudan beats Nigeria to rank for oil dependency.

The map is designed and published by Information Is Beautiful, a visual website “dedicated to distilling the world’s data, information and knowledge into beautiful, interesting and, above all, useful visualisations, infographics and diagrams”.

The map, entitled “International number ones… because every country is best at something”, relies on data from the CIA, the World Bank, UN, Bloomberg and Forbes, among others.

International Number Ones: What Is Your Country Best At?

Information Is Beautiful says 
If your country is not on the image, it’s either because
a) we couldn’t fit it in
b) we couldn’t find something your nation is the best at (sorry!)
