Thank you a lot! It was actually easier for the United States than all other countries. I've tried to have a good diversity of countries (I think the most present is Canada, with 16, which is prettt low, in my opinion, for a CTBQ with 100 answers).

But a compliment like this one by the original creator of the series is awesome! Thanks!
