Every country has their special talent

It’s a bit like preschool/kindergarten, where teachers have to reassure kids that they’ve all special in their own way, but a wonderfully esoteric map of International Number Ones: Because every country is the best at something (courtesy of the people at Information is Beautiful) does the same for states needing a bit of a bit of a boost to their egos. The really small ones got left out though, which probably doesn’t help their relative self-esteem…

The UK is top for CCTV coverage, Belize for mammal species, the Philippines for text messaging and Australia for car thefts. Who knew?

And the source? That great website at the hub of school social science classes, the CIA World Factbook.
