Here are some interesting facts from the map:

  • 16% of countries had ‘war’ as their most common word, including nearly all of western Europe.
  • 1/4th of all countries had their most common word be a colonial power. Of these, Britian had the most, with 16 countries.
  • Nobility goes by different names in different places. 20 countries had either ‘sultan’, kingdom’, ‘dynasty’, or ’empire’.
  • Some countries’ most common word was the name of a nearby country. Don’t be fooled: ‘Hungary’ is actually Slovakia, ‘India’ is Pakistan, ‘Ethiopia’ is Eritrea, and ‘Indonesia’ is East Timor.
  • Very few countries are labeled after the name of their pre-colonial, indigenous population, but their are some exceptions.
