World Cup of Indicators

Wall Street Journal has an interesting interactive graphic showing various world cup tournament scenarios based on broad national indicators (mostly percentages).

Nigeria apparently the cup home for most agricultural land and fastest population growth, Japan claims the trophy for most seafood consumed and lowest murder rate, while Ghana comes out tops for highest education spending, percentage of protestants and hottest weather. Not suggesting any correlations here of course.

Global development: it’s a beautiful game.
