Slovenia, Serbia and FYR Macedonia were kind of a surprise to me. Spain, too, a bit, and Belarus. Hungary, you got some explaining to do. (Comment from 2019: boy, was I ignorant of the dominant but by no means universal political forces that had been brewing in Hungary then!) France, vous me désappointez aussi.
As it does in every possible measure of national success, of course, Scandinavia rocks.
Mostly, this was a chance to take my hex grid chloropleth of Europe out for a spin!
