LiveJournal Top 100

OK, so, it turns out that Nationmaster.com have a Top 100 LiveJournal users, except they're going by country rather than by user. So you'd expect this to be roughly the same as what you get on the LiveJournal stats page.

Nope.

Here's the top fifteen countries from each:

LiveJournal
United States
Canada
United Kingdom
Russian Federation
Australia
Germany
Singapore
Philippines
Netherlands
Japan
Ukraine
New Zealand (Aotearoa)
Finland
Israel
Scotland
NationMaster
United States
Canada
United Kingdom
Russia
Australia
Germany
Singapore
Japan
Netherlands
Philippines
Ukraine
Israel
Sweden
Brazil
Ireland

OK, so the first 7 are the same, there's a bit of mixing up lower down - the NationMaster figures seem to be a week or so out of date, despite it claiming to be figures for "December 2004" at the bottom... The problem is that New Zealand doesn't appear anywhere on NationMaster's list.

Neither does Scotland for that matter, but I guess NationMaster don't regard it as a separate country.

I'm guessing their automated script is confused by "New Zealand (Aotearoa)".
