Have you ever asked yourself, what would the World look like as a small community of 100 people? Probably not. However, it is something to think about, as the reality would be startling - as much as you’d think so, the village would only have 7 computers, and only 1 person in the World Village would be educated at University level.

Although aesthetically beautiful, with sharp lines and bold, vibrant colours, these infographics are often horrifying.
