    I’d say the Sahara has few resources, low population and lots of space, so let’s say:

    Chad
    Niger
    Mauretania

    • iqtrivia says:

      You’ve got two of them, though apparently Chad has got too much going on economically.

      • Nathan says:

        Huh. Chad has always been a byword for backward to me.

        So let’s cheat a bit and suggest two more: Central African Republic and South Sudan.

        • iqtrivia says:

          Central African Republic is another one.

          There are two more in the bottom five. One is in Africa (and has had a pretty rough time over the last couple of decades) and one is in Asia (and has a lot of space and not a lot of people.)

          • Nathan says:

            South Sudan’s absence surprises me quite a bit.

            The clue sounds like it could be referring to Zimbabwe (but really, hasn’t most of Africa had a pretty bad couple of decades?) and Mongolia.

          • Nathan says:

            No, wait!

            Zimbabwe is not that bad from what I saw. So let’s go with the combination of sand, famine, invasion and pirates that is Somalia!

          • iqtrivia says:

            That’s it. Somalia has very little in the way of economic activity.

            And Mongolia is a big country with not a lot of people.
