Guess the economy of the day within 6 tries!
Type your guess and press the submit button.
Suggestions will appear as you type. Each guess must be a valid country/territory
(if the button turns red, it means you've tried to give an invalid answer).
With each guess, you'll see two metrics: your econle score (the colored
blocks), and your guess distance (the
number on the right).
Your econle score represents how good your guess is; it's calculated from the
difference in GDP ranks between your guess and the target country. Your guess distance is the difference
between your guess GDP and the target in absolute terms.
For example, let's assume today's country is Japan with a GDP of
$5.05T. If you guess Moldova, you'll see this:
If you guess United States, you'll see this:
As the largest economy in the world, the US GDP is much higher
than that of Japan, so the absolute difference is greater than the first guess.
However, because the ranks of the two economies are so similar (1 vs. 3),
the econle score is actually much better!
This game was inspired by Wordle,
a 6-attempt daily word guessing challenge. Further inspiration came from
Worldle, a geography-based variant.
