I guess that those 15% who got wrong spelled Lichtenstein right are not coming from 100% countries. I am, so I didn't get that one :)

A lot of the Central Asia countries, and the Caucasus, surprised me. Also, Greenland is not a country, so that's why only 5% people guessed it.

I think many of these claimed literacy rates can be attributed to how they collect statistics. Does anybody seriously believe that Russia or Uzbekistan could have a higher literacy rate than Sweden?
