The Most Heavily Forested Country On Earth Is?

What Did Microsoft Include With Early Windows Versions To Train People To Use The Mouse?

Answer: Suriname

Suriname is the smallest sovereign state in South America. Formerly a Dutch colony, the tiny 64,000 square mile country is known for its bauxite mines, rice, bananas, and a thriving eco-tourism industry.

That eco-tourism industry draws its strength from the enormous amount of largely untouched tropical rain forests in the region. 90.2% of Suriname’s 64,000 square miles is forest, which makes it the most heavily forested nation on Earth.
