Each country is No. 1 at something; sometimes positive, like France's dominance in tourism, India's spot as the world's top feature movie producer and Norway's best quality of life. Other countries, on the other hand, excel at not-so-great things; look at Spain's title as the world's top cocaine consumer, China's label as most carbon emissions, and North Korea's most censored country.

And between the good and the ugly, there are countries that stand out for more weird categories; such as Venezuela's most Miss Universe winners, South Korea's spot as the top country with most workaholics, and Estonia's more women than men ratio.   

Here are some more quirky findings:

- Most Africa Cup of Nations titles: Egypt 

- Tallest people: Netherlands

- Most brain drain: Iran

- Most UEFA titles: Italy

- World's worst inflation: Zimbawe

- Most atheist country: Sweden

- Worst in gender equalityYemen
