You would be correct! However, this quiz is based on the number people who are born in different countries; Vatican City has a population of around 800. I am currently working on a new quiz based on percentages alone!

Okay so even if the pope and the cardinals have Vatican Citizenship, they still count because they are all foreign-born?

Exactly, just like American citizens that were born in another country.

all interesting and fun quizzes... I wonder why more people haven't taken them. Again I ended up scoring as good or better than 100% of test takers but I only got 23/25 right.

Your guess on why more people haven't taken these quizzes is as good as mine! But thank you for taking them and appreciating them!

Although Brazil has many people from all backgrounds imaginable; European, African and Asian migration has mainly occured in previous generations. In the US for example many people continued to migrate in larger numbers and still do. In Brazil migration has mainly been historic, with the exception of Venezuelan refugees or other South American migrants. But the numbers are still not as high as in other countries.
