So many island states so far..
There are 47 island states in the world. Therefore island states make up 47/198 as a proportion of the countries, or 0.237. So far, there have been 2 island states as country of the week (St Vincent and the Grenadines and the Maldives). Therefore island states make up 2/9 of the countries of the various weeks. 2/9 = 0.222, so therefore, island states have not been overrepresented. And anyway, I'm picking the country of the week by using a random number generator, so it's completely random which country comes up next.
We hardly get countries where we actually have some information about...
You get the basic information, but the idea is to discuss the country of the week, not just let me tell you a load of stuff about it.
