Are you considering the percentage as the European part of Russia or the Asian part of Russia? I imagine it is probably the European part but I just wanted to make sure. :)

I was using the European part of Russia for Europe and the Asian for Asia :)

The Asian part is not populous enough. Even Indonesia doesn't make the cut and it's the 4th most populous country in the world!

To put into perspective how massive Asia's population is, Indonesia, which has over a quarter of a BILLION people, doesn't even crack seven percent.
+6
Level 65
Dec 9, 2016
Yes, therefore this quiz is non-Asia-centric

It is not greenlands fault, he never get to join in on all these quizzes. Is always left out, so it is understanding it doesnt get all the names straight of all the countries that do get to play while greenland sits alone in its corner. (Though, wales and scotland sometimes check on him, and though they arent really friends, cyprus sometimes join him)

It's too bad cyprus wasn't on here for europe and / or asia. not sure which it is . ..

australia and NZ arent on the same continent. Im not sure what the criteria was. NZ is actually on a separate continent called Zealandia
+7
Level 30
Sep 22, 2019
For these purposes and in general we only use the 7 main continents so New Zealand is in Oceania
+1
Level 66
Sep 22, 2019
I don't think NZ and PNG are on a continent. It should be made clear at the top that you are counting Oceania as a continent. And is PNG in Oceania or Asia (assuming Indonesia is in Asia, although it is not part of continental Asia).
+1
Level 60
Jul 15, 2023
Indonesia is like Russia in the sense that it spans 2 continents. The island of New Guinea is part of Oceania. I don't think that's typically under debate.

New Zealand is typically part of Oceania (or Australia, or Australasia, whatever you call it), and that's the way JetPunk usually does it.

Level 77
May 1, 2023
It's presumably counting Oceania as the "continent." That's how New Zealand and Papua New Guinea end up on the list as well.

The other 40% is ruled by spiders and drop bears.

Wasn't there recent big news that India has surpassed China in population? Therefore there percentage should be higher than China's.

It's controversial (some sources say that happened in January, some say March, some say it hasn't happened). It hasn't been accepted in JetPunk quizzes yet.

Surprised that Indonesia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh didn't make the list, considering they are both in the top 10 most populated countries. I guess that just goes to show how massively populated India/China are compared to every other country in the world.

Both of them have over 3x the USA's population. They're both bigger than most people realize.
