Topic of the video: "Europe reflected in statistics"

Europe is a big picture, consisting of many facets or details: small villages and big cities forming part of the same continent; city workers involved mainly in the service sector, with their rural counterparts predominantly occupied in agriculture; economies based on tourism, with others based on industry; countries with notable levels of migration, etc.

How does your country fit into this picture? In which areas does it stand out from, or conform to, the European average? Does it have any interesting characteristics?

Referencing appropriate statistics, demonstrate in a video (duration 2:00 minutes) how your country compares with its European counterparts by either considering the average position, or contrasting with one other country; is there is anything that makes your country special in Europe? Regional comparisons are welcome, but not required.
