Where Are We Going? Clue 9

Apparently this did not post last night as scheduled, for a reason that I can't begin to guess, so this post is late. The final clue will post as scheduled tonight (my time) unless Blogger decides to do something strange again ...

As I told you last week, we're announcing our next assignment via a trivia game, complete with a prize! If you missed it, you can check out the rules and method of entry here.

Here are the previous clues:

  1. We'll actually have winter again! With snow! But we'll also have warm-to-hot, dry summers.
  2. I'll still be in the religious minority; only about 10% of the population is Christian.
  3. We'll be living in yet another poor country. Almost half of the population is unemployed, and the average per capita income is around $6,500/year.
  4. As of 2010, the country boasted only 8 airports, 4 of them with paved runways.
  5. It'll be our smallest capital city yet. The population is only 10% the size of Phnom Penh's.
  6. The country has two official languages. If you use the wrong one in the wrong area, you may find yourself in trouble!
  7. Once I move there, I will have lived on a total of four continents.
  8. This country was at war even more recently than Cambodia! It's one of the newest countries in the world, recognized by some--but not yet all--of its neighbors.

And here is today's clue:

It's a small country, not quite 11,000 square kilometers. The whole country has about as many people living in it as Phnom Penh, our current city!

Don't forget; tomorrow is our last clue! Good luck!

Update: So far, we've had 19 guesses from 14 people. Ten people have guessed correctly and have earned from four to nine entries each in the drawing.
