Could be Syria is down a bit now depending on the date of your source, and whether you're counting citizens or those who still live there.

According to Google, Syria's population has gone down to 18.4

That is due to Bashar al-Assad's regime killing relations with other countries, starving their people, and attacking them. The reason the population has dropped so low is because of refugees migrating to Western European countries, like Germany, and occasionally the United States.

I'll vouch for Austria and call it popular, Bolivia not so much. However, they aren't really that populated, so they'll never get on here.
