Trivia Corner: Nobel laureates
Starting with Theodore Roosevelt, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906, 172 Nobel laureates have been born in the United States. This is more than were born in any other country. However, due to the high population of the U.S., the number of Nobel prizes per capita is very low.
What smaller independent nation has given birth to the most Nobel prize winners as a fraction of its population?
