You can cut and paste from the above. Not sure that leaving any countries out makes for a valid poll.

Also note that only 100 options are allowed to be on any given pole. Which 90+ or so countries would you suggest I leave out?

Some quick calculations show that New Zealand has a larger percentage of its population participating in POTN than any other Nation.
This is using the figures in the above poll, and population numbers from http://www.populationw​orld.com/NewZealand.ph​p (external link)

Results:

NZ         0.000042%
UK 0.0000047%
ausie 0.0000035%
cananda 0.0000031%
USA 0.0000022%
Scotland 0.0000019



Not a bad effort really.

Although this is not accurate in all but the vaguest sense.
