C'mon, Mexico. Why can't you be more like Estonia?

We did some Google Analytics mining. Here are the number of visits to reddit in the last 30 days from a certain selection of countries:


What do these places all have in common? Not a single one of their citizens has ever sent us a postcard. Shame on you, Ηράκλειον. Cat got your tongue, Дзержи́нск? Did you break your arm, Hafnarfjörður?

Meanwhile, we have gotten postcards from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, Dominica, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Morocco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Niger, Northern Ireland, Norway, Poland, Portugal, the Republic of China (a.k.a. Taiwan), Romania, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, the United States, Vietnam, and Wales.

Here's what that looks like on a map (click to embiggen).

If the place you live isn't marked in orange, send us a postcard! (Scroll to the bottom of the reddit gold help page for details.) You'll honor your country, get a month of reddit gold, and we'll give your postcard prime placement on our wall of fame.
