    Can somebody give me an answer for the missing values for the wiki box
    GDP (PPP), GDP, HNI and HDI. From what I've calculated the total area of America is 17,325,082 km2 the Water area I'm uncertain of but with some averages I calculated it to be 8.11% of the country although its probably higher

    ehh, sorta.

    it's more of a hybrid, with a good-size minority being coptic, but the majority is still sunni islam. (btw flag 2 is the official flag, symbolising the unity between copts and muslims)

    That's actually kinda cool. I obviously haven't read the parts in the thread on African colonisation.

    so here’s a followup to the “daily show” wikibox
    Your Moment of Zen (July 22, 1996 – Present)
    Your Moment of Zen is a segment that occurs at the end of every show. The segment was introduced when the show began. In it, the host would end the show and a random selection of humorous videos would be shown, usually a clip that relates to one of the topics that was discussed in the episode. Hosts generally introduce the segment by saying, "Here it is, Your Moment of Zen". Sometimes, the Moment of Zen will be used a tribute to a celebrity or prominent figure who has recently passed away. Moments of Zen are replaced by musical guests who play out the episode with an additional performance. The segment continues under current host Lewis Black with the same structure.

    List of Different or Special Moments of Zen:
    • At the end of Stewart's final episode on August 6, 2015, he introduced his final Moment of Zen - a live performance by Bruce Springsteen - by saying "Here it is, my Moment of Zen".
    • On November 8, 2016, Lewis and The Best F#@king News Team re-created a post-credit scene from the movie The Avengers. This quick parody replaced the usual Moment of Zen.
    • On March 2, 2017, Lewis announced that they will be taking Your Moment of Zen suggestions from the viewers with the social media hashtag #DailyShowZen, because, according to Lewis, “You guys never get off of f**king Twitter and Facebook!” The first user submitted Moment of Zen aired on March 15, 2017.
    Meanwhile (1996–2015 as Back in Black with Lewis Black, 2015-present as Meanwhile)
    Meanwhile
    is a segment where Lewis comments on lesser-known stories in a humorous rant. He introduces the segment with an expression about how the smaller news bits often times don't get the coverage because of bigger news chunks. The segment originated in 1996, when Craig Kilborn was still host of The Daily Show. Since Lewis Black took over in 2015, he changed the title and introduction of the segment, but kept the same general format. As of 2017, it is the longest-running recurring segment that still airs on the show, aside from the Moment of Zen.

    Today's Future Now (October 7th, 2015 – May 16th, 2017)
    Today's Future Now is a segment hosted by correspondent Ronny Chieng, which takes a look at and reviews technological trends. The first segment, airing on October 7, 2015, was Chieng's first debut on The Daily Show as a correspondent.

    The segment has reviewed tech such as Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Smart Technology and Flying Cars.

    What The Actual Fact (November 11, 2015 – January 23, 2017)
    What The Actual Fact is a fact-checking segment, usually analysing speeches from political figures or events.

    The segment is hosted by Desi Lydic (once with Jessica Williams) and involves her standing in-front of a screen. A clip/soundbite is shown where a politician is making a statement that is false (or is misleading in some way). Desi then deconstructs the lie and gives it a humorous rating on a joke scale.


    The Yearly Show (December 17, 2015 – present)
    On the show's last episode of the year, Lewis and The Best F#@king News Team review the previous year's biggest news story and trends.

    Livin' On The Street (January 20, 2016 – April 21, 2016)
    Livin' On The Street is a segment hosted by Hasan Minhaj where he parodies 'Wall Street Executives' & financial commercials and talks about money, stocks & economy. Hasan plays a character who gives technically viable yet crazy-sounding advice, who also has financial & family problems.


    Third Month Mania (March 17, 2016 – present)
    A parody of March Madness, with a bracket filled with other topics instead of basketball teams. Third Month Mania is an annual segment that airs weekly segments throughout March and April. Voting happens on thirdmonthmania.com.

    For the first annual Third Month Mania, viewers could vote on what made them the "maddest". Choices included "Slow WiFi" vs "No WiFi", "AntiVaxxers" vs "Hipsters", etc. Hosted by Hasan Minhaj and Roy Wood Jr., the correspondents over-hyped the results and bracket changes poking fun at March Madness commentators. The official description from thirdmonthmania.com; "Third Month Mania looks at all the important (and trivial) things that make you angry, then pits them against each other in a bracket where your vote actually matters. This single-elimination tournament takes place mostly in the month after February and is in no way connected to college athletics".

    By the end of Third Month Mania 2016, after 4.4 million votes, the winner for most maddening thing were Trump Supporters.

    For the second annual Third Month Mania, viewers could vote on which Donald Trump tweet is the greatest. The bracket was broken up into 4 sections: "Celebs", "Enemies", "Government Affairs" and "WTF".


    Jordan Klepper Fingers the Pulse (July 21, 2016 – March 21, 2017)
    Jordan Klepper goes out and talks to different crowds in public. Usually talking to Donald Trump supporters at Trump rallies or events, he asks them questions that highlight the hypocrisy within the group. One segment was dedicated to talking to the inhabitants of Dick Street, New Jersey.


    2016 Daily Show Summer Games (August 8, 2016 – August 18, 2016)
    Usually right before the start of an episode, this segment was a parody of 2016 Summer Olympicscommentators. This segment was used to satirically portray the news that was coming out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It also joked about issues that occurred at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, such as the Zika virus epidemic, the swimming pools turning green and the Ryan Lochte scandal.

    Sometimes it was used to make fun of the 'mental gymnastics' that politicians & pundits used in order to spin certain stories. Notably, it mocked Donald Trump supporters of constantly flip-flopping on their defence of their candidate.

    Hosted by Roy Wood Jr. and Jordan Klepper (once with Roy Wood Jr. & Ronny Chieng) as commentators, sometimes with a Lewis Black cameo as a participant.

    Outrage Court (September 13, 2016 – October 12, 2016)Edit
    A pre-recorded sketch-based segment where Roy Wood Jr. is a judge who listens to two attorneys argue about a certain issue, taken place in Outrage Court. The attorneys are Jordan Klepper and Desi Lydic, who take a different position on topics such as "trigger warnings" and appropriate ways to protest.

    The segment ends with Roy Wood Jr. accepting valid points from both stances and dismissing any invalid points.

    Black Eye on America (October 20, 2016 – April 3, 2017)Edit
    Roy Wood Jr. talks about issues through an African-American perspective. The segments consist of short, quick interviews with African-Americans who have knowledge on the issue, as well as examples of how that certain issue affects black Americans.

    The first segment of Black Eye on America talks about the struggles that black journalists have when discussing race issues on television.[7] It talks about how and why they have to keep calm, and shows examples of non-black anchors making racist remarks towards these black journalists.

    The second segment looks at the phenomenon known as "Black Twitter".

    I Apologize for Talking While You Were Talking (January 2018 — present)
    Roy Wood, Jr. and Michael Kosta (though, in one segment, Ronny Chieng filled in for Kosta) co-host this segment dedicated to what is going on in the world of sports.

    CP Time with Roy Wood Jr. (February 2018 - present)
    Roy Wood, Jr. hosts this segment while wearing a fake grey mustache and horn-rimmed glasses. This segment is dedicated to African-American history. The motto of the segment is, "Remember, we're for the culture." The title is a reference to the slang "Colored people's time".

    Everything is Stupid (June 2018 — present)
    Ronny Chieng hosts this segment, providing commentary on ridiculous trends in the news such as Fortnite, luxurious doghouses, and adventure playgrounds.

    F**k These Animals (February 2019 — present)
    Lewis provides comments on stories involving animals in a humorous rant, often shouting, “F**k These Animals!”
    note: even though meanwhile appears on the otl colbert late show, ttl he doesn’t host it, so the sketch never appeared there

    Let me ask you two questions:
    • How did Russia have legalized LGBT marriage and becomes the most LGBT-friendly country?
    • Why Deseret was the most homophobic country?

    Russia is a Liberal US style of democracy. Russia actually has a relatively friendly past on LGBT decriminiling homosexual activilty in the soviet union in 1922. With Yabloko as the governing party in a western-style liberal democracy, it's fair to assume that Russia would be friendly toward Homosexuality.

    Deseret is an Authoriatian Mormon Theocracy which means that people are expected to conform to gender roles. Homosexuality directly defies the gender roles and therefore Homosexuals would likely be removed from society the excuse being that they would break down family structure if they are allowed to express themselves.

    sahara (otl western sahara) should also be the death penalty, mauritania should be slightly less severe.

    manchuria and qingdao should be the same as china, since they are puppets of it

    the rio grande, tabasco, oaxaca and the yucatán is now part of mexico(who is under a socialist government)

    lanfang should be separate from pontianak (former should recognize gay marriage as well as kalimantan, latter should be life inprisonment)

    senegal is a lot more liberal and democratic, at least make them recognize civil unions

    the entirety of the pacific is unified (besides ng and aotearoa)
    russia is a lot more liberal and democratic country, since putin ain’t around (i’m planning where he ends up: let’s just say alaskans aren’t gonna like me after that)

    deseret is a mormon theocracy. and the mormons don’t like homosexuality at all

    Love the box, added the threadmark! I'll try and figure out some of the GDP data (that stuff is above my community college educated head but I'm relatively well informed enough to figure out a rough estimate of the Commonwealth's ranking) as well for the country infobox.
