Over the past few weeks I’ve attempted to compile the most accurate population of major countries in the OGF world from 1960-2017. In this race you can toggle by which continent(s) to show. Currently, I have data for ~100 countries in this race and plan to have all countries by the end of December.
Here Is The Race

What happens if the country has a famine or war? Or a mass purge?

If you need population data for Hoppon just pm me. Hoppon wasn’t considered a developed country until the 80s, and so has a relatively high fertility rate of around 2.6 kids per woman today, and it was historically around 3.5 in the 70s, and has slowly been decreasing ever since, mostly because minorities like the Shu and rural Hopponese average around 3.2 while the city/urban Hopponese average around 2.2.

It’s an interesting idea. Be aware that Pretany is being condensed and greatly altered; it will no longer be even close to a frontrunner. Not only that, many of us haven’t updated our country statistics in a while. I haven’t touched Mauretia’s for a while, for example, although it probably wouldn’t even make an appearance. I’d be curious to see what would happen if it were extended a touch to include more smaller countries.

Nice work. How did you determine the growth rates?
Interesting to see and looks OK for Ataraxia (Ingerish spelling is with an ‘a’).
Ataraxia would have been relatively closed-minded in the 50s-60s, with growth starting to accelerate as successive PFS & MDNA governments have liberalized immigration laws.
More concerned about Gobrassanya though, which is roughly the size of England. The 80m figure gives Gobrassanya a population density equivalent to Taiwan, 50-60% higher than that of England / the Netherlands / India. We don’t have good pop. estimates, but Gobras City looks a lot more like 10m than 20m, so and each of the south coast cities look to me like 1-2 million people each, so hard to see how to get to 80m. Would be more realistic to me in the 30-60m range.

Wow, it looks really nice. Great work!

Would love to have all countries visible at some point! Looks amazing though!

Damn. That is great work. However due to the nature of OGF, the statistics are already out of date.

@Zhenkang If there’s a famine/war I drop the population between 3%-5% per year.
@Portopolis I will dm you later today.
@Alessa I will fix Pretany later today by making the growth slow so the population wont be as high. It also does include smaller countries but the way I have it configured only show top 15. I will add a link here later today showing the bottom ones.
@Dono87 Thanks! I determined growth rates by country age. 1-3% growth if 0-100 or 401+ years old. 4-7% growth if 101-250 years old. 8-10% growth if 250-400 years old. I will make the growth slow in the earlier year later today. I will decrease the population of Gobrassyana a little later today to fix the issue.
@Geoboi Thanks! I would configure to show all countries to show, but the font would be too small to read. I’ll send a link later today to show all countries.
@Jojoba Thanks! I tried to relieve that issue by only putting countries that were NOT marked for removal or lost countries.

Is there any way to see all the data you have included?
Comment from CartographerKing on 21 November 2019 at 13:09
@Taka I could configure it but it would be too small. I’ll send the link here in ~30 min
