That amazed me as well. I've been to Singapore, and I thought it and Bahrain would be bankers. You always learn something, eh.

It's so tiny though that I guess any farmland at all would put it over the limit

A Moroccan acquaintance said: "the only thing that grows in our land is hashish." (yes, that is the word he used, it's a verbatim quote) But... suppose that's cultivation and crops, too.

The Kalahari desert is in that nation so it would make sense, it's almost entirely desert.

Where do Singapore, San Marino, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Andorra farm and what do they even farm...when Mongolia, Saudi and Congo can't?

It's percent of their land. So if 3 trees make 10% of Liechtenstein, it's more than 3 million trees that make 0,1% of Congo.

There is actually quite a lot of farmland in Liechtenstein mostly grassland for cows and sheep etc. but they also grow a few fruits like apples and grapes. The country is very lush and green because of it's location in the Rhine Valley.

As an Andorran, I can say that currently a 4% of Andorra's land is destined to agriculture.

It's a rugged land in a cold climate, but all of our ancestors depended on it to survive. Tourism and sky resorts are a recent invention :)

Monaco is actually not 0%. There is a documentary about a woman having the only commercial farm of tomatoes in Monaco.
