I have assigned 198 countries a number. The countries I've chosen are the 193 members of the UN plus those recognised by at least 20 UN members. Each week I will pick a country using a random number generator and we will discuss that country.




Country of the Week for week 9: Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Population: 102k

There are 47 island states in the world. Therefore island states make up 47/198 as a proportion of the countries, or 0.237. So far, there have been 2 island states as country of the week (St Vincent and the Grenadines and the Maldives). Therefore island states make up 2/9 of the countries of the various weeks. 2/9 = 0.222, so therefore, island states have not been overrepresented. And anyway, I'm picking the country of the week by using a random number generator, so it's completely random which country comes up next.

You get the basic information, but the idea is to discuss the country of the week, not just let me tell you a load of stuff about it.

Saint Vincentians, or just Vincentians for short.

It's the letters s and t merged into 1 character to get around the character limit on thread tittles. Depending upon which web browser and OS you use, your computer might not recognise it.
