@Cernel said in How would you rate countries and territories considering realism in big WWII maps.:
@RogerCooper Three things:
I suggest you check Algeria (8 too much) and Venezuela (1 too little) (I'm guessing math errors there, in interpolating).
Why there is Czechoslovakia and Slovakia?
Also Nigeria at 5 is a bit surprising (but not too much).
(didn't look at the source at the moment)
The interpolation process contains anomalies, With Algeria, the first figure for per capita gdp if for 1971. My interpolation technique puts the WW2 numbers close to that. For many non-western countries, the first figure is for 1950, I will need to seek better figures for 1950.
I forget to remove Slovakia.I will develop a mask worksheet to prevent double-counting of countries, rather than fixing the results
Venezuela had only 3.6 million people in 1939.
Nigeria benefits from a relatively large population, a result of relatively benign British colonialism. By contrast, Belgian rule reduces the population of the Congo by 25% (a worse record than Stalin).
