I'm (slowly) working on a spreadsheet with every result from every game.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

As far as my research indicates, the following answers are wrong.

Andorra
Germany
Great Britain
Japan

Research is based on the six lists here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...y_GDP_(nominal)

And here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...PP)_per_capita

With six lists to review, though, it's possible I goofed up, so if you see one you think is right, speak up.

Be warned, grundle -- I will check wikipedia's edit history!

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

That means there were two correct unique answers (Australia and the Netherlands), so Flashback and feenst each get a 10 point bonus!

Or most people know that tiny European, Asian and Middle Eastern countries, along with Scandanavian countries, are, as a general rule, relatively rich.

Or perhaps even some people, (and this seems like quite the informed group), know a thing or two?
