Might be very very wrong, but I know Bhutan doesn't recognise a lot of countries so maybe this is why it's on here. I cannot remember if they recognise the USA or not.

Why is 'has strong ties with ' repeated in this way, first with 2 possibilities, then 1, and 1, etc? Sorry I just found that confusing! Nice quiz idea though

The first column is "Frequency," meaning the number of times that country appears on the page in total. For the ones that appear multiple times, the "Context" is just one example.

I'm surprised the entire wikipedia article only mentions this few countries, I thought for sure it would be way more

This was fun, and I learned a lot! Thank you for making it. I have spent the last 20 minutes, though, trying to decide if the question about El Salvador might be backwards. I read it as "the US is the fifth most common source of immigrants to this country" instead of "people of this country are the fifth largest group of immigrants in the U.S." Anyone else read it that way?
