The answers for “rich”, south to north - diamonds, oil, oil. Would like to know the answers for “poor.”
I applied the “Why is [name of country] so…?” idea to Africa this time.
The “cheap” floating west of Senegal and Mauritania refers to Cape Verde; the “safe” in the Gulf of Guinea refers to São Tomé and Príncipe; the “expensive” floating on Indian Ocean refer to Seychelles and Mauritius; the “poor” also floating on the Indian Ocean refers to Comoros.
There were no results for Southern Sudan (too recent a country?).
If I may, I will use this opportunity to clarify the colour selection in my previous map (of Europe), namely why “corrupt” and “atheist” were the same colour. Contrary to some comments I read, there was no agenda dictating the colours I used; if for no other reason, because I’m an atheist myself…
It was just bad luck. (I’m the kind of atheist that doesn’t believe in karma either, heheheh…)
In my original file “atheist” and “corrupt” had somewhat different colours (dark violet and brown, respectively), but I made the mistake of saving it as a 32-colour GIF, which made them look the same. (The same happened with “powerful” and “hot”). As simple as that. No conspiracy involved.
