I found this bit interesting;
"Nations are "alphabetized" in order of the number of strokes in the first character of the country's name in Chinese.
I was curious as to how they would fill in the order from Greece to China, for as far as I know, the Chinese language does not have an alphabet like many other languages.
The phonetic pronunciations of some of the countries are pretty cool as well. Kinda sounds like me when I'm drunk
New Zealand - Xīn Xīlán
Australia - Aòdàlìyà
Puerto-Rico - Bōduō Lígè
Zimbabwe - Jīnbābùwéi
