This perpetuates negative stereotypes of Africa. The map generally pokes fun of countries' stereotypes. However, the continent receives disproportionately less news coverage that is also disproportionately more negative.

The USA leads the world in Miss Universe with 8. Venezuela has 7. Puerto Rico is third with 5 and leads the world in Miss Universes per capita. USA has a population of approx. 320 million, Venezuela has 30.4 million, Puerto Rico has about 3.6 million. I would say that Puerto Rico leads the world in the beautiful women category. But unfortunately, your map completely left them out. Not a good way to make the world be happy and enlightened when you failed to include so many. Just sayin.
