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.

No, the Maledives are a group of small islands, but only a few of them inhabited. I guess the picture shows the capital.

Ah that makes sense I'm sure that island is very pretty from eye level but from the sky if you cross your eyes it looks like one of them islands made from rubbish in the Atlantic.

It's in the Indian Ocean, not the Atlantic.

I wonder how broke they are for having to import all of their food and basic toiletries.

Noteable: Has a script somewhat different from Arabic, but still writes right to left.
