Every country in the world is good at something. France is known for their food, Britain for its queens, Brazil its footballers, Germany its beer and so on, but what about places we never hear of; like Papua New Guinea and Fiji? Well, you no longer have to wonder because this ginormous map reveals all.

The awesome peeps over at Information is Beautiful have spent months collecting all sorts of data from renowned organisations like the CIA (scary), Reuters, BBC, The Economist and Forbes to answer the question on everyone’s minds: what is my country good at?

The map is divided into nine distinct categories: Commodity, psychology, ecology, gastronomy, economy, nicety, humanity, technology and nasty (random).

As you can see, the results are pretty hilarious. Angola is really good at ‘child mortality’, Indonesia ‘coconuts’, the UK ‘billionaires’, and Belgium ‘cashless payments’.

China has the most jailed journalists, and Pakistan has the most gay pornography. Rwanda tops the list for most women in parliament, and Tanzania for female workers.

Eye opener.
