Sometimes I have a feeling that a lot of people do not know basic things about the world. To improve this I want to collect a summary of statistics that are really helpful for getting a better understanding of the world.
All of the statistics will be aggregated from some place so do not expect anything new if you are already well informed.
I want to start at very basic things and maybe dig deeper as I continue.
Today is gonna be about the top 10 countries by population.
My guesses for this of course were countries like India, China, USA, Brazil, …
The most surprising entries for me were mostly some Asian countries I did not believe to be so highly populated. (Especially Indonesia and Pakistan) Also worth noting is Nigeria which I would not have guessed as Africas most populated country.
