Most of the information is good, except of the groups classification. Lebanon is not one of the muslim countries, it should not be classified upon any followed religion. Half of the population is christian for a first, and the constitution divides the roles in the country upon the found religions in the country such as the president and head of the army have to be Maronite christians. I wish you fix the classification, as the country belongs to the Middle East Region or the Easter Mediterranean not the muslim countries. Thank you. This is coming from a Lebanese citizen.

  • The Muslim countries list refers to countries that are majority Muslim. From what I can see, the Muslim population is somewhere between 55% and 60% depending on the source.
