They don't get much tourists (only a few hundred a year) because of its small population and isolation in the Pacific Ocean. Also, most of the island is un-usable for farming

Slightly known for being beautiful and having no-capital( is that right? ) But overall not many people know about it.

If these countries here are not popular, then why do so many people know about them and voted for them?

I know but I'm one of those crazy geeks that know all the countries most people won't know

2 Saõ Tome and Principe

I told my friends about this place and they thought I was making this place up because they've never heard of it. Haha.

One of the most forgotten countries in Africa, Saõ Tome and Principe has the smallest population in the continent.

This place is so small. I told my friends about and they have never heard of the place.

These other countries I've heard of once or twice, but not this.

Timor-Leste is the 2nd Catholic country in Asia besides the Philippines. It has a rich Portuguese history, but was devastated by Indonesia in the very early 2000s unfortunately

Everyone at my school thinks I made this country up. THEY EVEN THOUGHT NAURU WAS REAL OVER THIS. So I voted for Timor-Leste
