How many countries are represented at RHP? It would have been pretty cool to have played a game against players freom each and every country.

I have yet to see the flag of Israel, which I expect has a healthy number of chess players, good internet connectivity, a fair amount of discretionary leisure time, and no laws against playing at online sites, so far as I know. I could understand the absence of countries that lack these attributes. Are there other countries that are inexplicably unrepresented?

It is not everyone that flies a flag, I played a non aligned member a couple of days ago.

In fact I am still playing them.

I'm trying to play someone from each location on the menu. So far, I've played 178 different flags. I think Libya and South Sudan may be the only nations not on the list, but there are lots of places that don't currently have an active player.

I've played players from all 7 continents and players flying flags of 222 different countries or territories. There are 17 additional flags being flown from players on RHP whom I have not yet played.
