I have assigned 198 countries a number. The countries I've chosen are the 193 members of the UN plus those recognised by at least 20 UN members. Each week I will pick a country using a random number generator and we will discuss that country.

Great country to hide in case of global nuclear war; worthless and low but pretty even population density (lower population density than Russia, even).

You can hide in case of global nuclear war, but you may face a civil war with people armed and threatening you with machetes... Not the best place I think.

A few tribes there hunt a kind of burrowing python, I believe. The snakes have tunnels more than 10 feet long ending in a lair. Boys and men crawl into the tunnels headfirst with little protection and haul out the snake to get its skin and meat.

By the way, this Country of the Week thing would finish in like 2018 or something. Some of us could be dead by then. Better make it a one or two day thing.

My mother visited it a few years ago, when I was smaller. And she said its dangerous there... Thats not a clichee. She worked for people who helped against the lack of water there and the military had to guard them becuase its just not safe there.

It looks like a beautiful place to visit:

Plus, the war has only displaced or killed 1/4 of the people living there. That means that 3/4 of the people are still alive, and not homeless. This is even safer than Syria!

If there's a country where that doesn't apply to, then it's a pretty shit country.

However, that picture does look nice.

Edit: I had to put the link outside of the quote because putting it inside the quote makes it go weird.

Read though the comments first. Angry Koala already said something similar to that and I've already given a response.

Here's an inarguable fact: of all of the countries we've discussed in this series, Central African Republic is clearly the most appealing tourist destination.

See the famous African wildlife in a beautiful and adventurous setting, with only a moderate chance of being killed and eaten (e.g. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-25708024 ). What could be better?

Pros:
Its a country.
You would be filthy rich there.
Plants and nature.

Cons:
Getting eaten.
Its poor as shit.
Nearly everyone there faces a death in a horrible way.
