Did you know that Zambia has the largest number of female entrepreneurs in the world? Or that Norway has the most pizza eaters in the world? Or if you prefer more refined cuisine, Japan is the top travel destination for foodies?

All these surprising facts come from David McCandless’ fascinating world map of International Number Ones, which pinpoints what different nations around the world are really good at. The people of Pakistan, for example, really like gay porn—and that's just one of the facts that'll raise eyebrows.

McCandless got the data for his map from several sources including the United Nations, CIA, Guinness World Records, and the World Bank. He categorized the information into nine color-coded categories: psychology, ecology, technology, nasty, nicety, humanity, gastronomy, commodity, and economy.

It’s important to note that these statistics are based on the “% of population data” and the facts are “mostly per capita.” Some countries are not included because there is no data available on what they are best at.
