Not sure how I'd find this out but what country has the largest number of WCA competitors as a percentage of a country's population?
Getting the total number of competitors from each country on the WCA database export would be trivial, but getting populations for the countries as the WCA defines them would be a chore. For example, this list puts Kosovo's population as part of Serbia, but Kosovo is considered its own country by the WCA. On the other hand, lists like this one put the Isle of Man as a separate country where the WCA recognizes that as part of the UK. Personally, I can't be bothered to do the research and compiling necessary to do this request correctly.

How many countries does the WCA think there are?
