A few thoughts: (contains spoilers)

1. You may be surprised by Austria's huge amount of points. This comes from the fact that Austria, as a nation, has won EVERY. SINGLE. SEASON. since 1992. Not that I'm bitter...

2. These 21 nations are the only ones to have collected at least 1,000 points. Number 22, Australia, has collected 985 points.

3. Dead last in this ranking is Bosnia and Herzegovina at 2 points. Skier Elvedina Muzaferija has won the first points for her country on January 12, 2020 in Zauchensee, Austria.

4. Luxembourg's points are all thanks to one man - Marc Girardelli, one of the best skiers of his time.

I love how Liechtenstein has more points than Slovakia. And I also love that Austria is first of course :)

Liechtenstein has an unfair advantage since they have such a huge population compared to other tiny countries like China and India which fail to make the list. I've seen people state here many times that population is the biggest, or at least a major, factor in the number of Olympic medals a country gets or other similar achievements. This data obviously proves those people right.
