Great job! I got them all, struggling a little on the one with a ratio of 5.31, but was surprised at the lack of Vietnam (1.86), Malaysia (1.6), Ecuador (1.01), Israel (0.98), Thailand (0.76), and Slovenia (0.13).

I nominated it and linked this on the original quiz.

Well, Slovenia has pretty short coastline, I suppose I guessed all the others.

I really like this quiz. I would be curious if the equation were shifted slightly to be divided by square root of area.

make no sence without island countries, the costline from norway, chile, greece, croatia, south korea ect are full of island which are accounted in your calculation!

Yes, maybe. But it does make sense to leave out island countries because otherwise they would be the only ones here.

There is a link to the quiz you're after in the first caveat.
