Most Obese Country Comparison

Is USA the most obese country? How about the skinniest country? We compare using animated countryballs, specially designed for this video. The fatness level is measured using 3 indices: BMI (Body Mass Index), Obesity rate and overweight rate of countries. We use the popular countryball series where the length of the ball corresponds with the unit size of BMI.

Visualization note: The countryballs have same height but are linearly scaled across their width by their BMI. i.e. A Countryball with a BMI of 30 would be 1.5X the width of a Countryball with a BMI of 20.

Flag note for Poland: Polandball is drawn this way as a rule of Countryball (upside down)! That is also why Indoball has a rice hat.
