April 7th Update:

The SVG has been completely redone to include a more smooth circle stroke, circle size that matches new population data from the source. The population column has also been updated. Finally, China and India are now a more humble shade of grey. Enjoy!

No, the point is to show that these countries are the exclusion. Also, having them as a lighter shade doesn't make the map look as gloomy, if that makes any sense.

Kinda surprised that there hasn't been a quiz like this before. Nominated! Also, can you please accept "Saigon" for Ho Chi Minh City?

I was too! And yes, Saigon is now accepted. I don't know why I switched Ho Chi Minh off of auto.
