Exile Destinations, Part 6

Three thoughts while researching this:

  • The only good thing about dictators with 20+ year reigns is that it's quicker for me to do the research.  I have to look at the bios of every leader from each country from 1975 on.  When there's a new leader every year, that's a lot of clicking and reading.  I shudder at the thought of researching Haiti.  Didn't it have a different leader every week during the early 1990s?
  • There are a ton of Latin American leaders with Middle Eastern backgrounds.
  • Ecuadorian president Abdala Bucaram (1996-97) has the most unique moustache.

51. Ecuador-- Brazil, Panama
52. Egypt-- 0
53. El Salvador-- 1 unknown country
54. Equatorial Guinea-- 0
55. Eritrea-- 0
56. Estonia-- 0
57. Ethiopia-- Italy
58. Fiji-- 0
59. Finland-- 0
60. France-- 0

Tally thus far: 

3x = U.S.

2x = Brazil, France, U.K., U.S.S.R./Russia

1x = Australia, Austria, Italy, Ivory Coast, Libya, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Panama, Somalia, Spain, Togo, Uganda, Uruguay, unknown.
