I became an unwitting victim of the mercator projection.

The country in question must needs be Malawi.

This country was home to a woman who is considered the most prolific female serial killer in history.

Pretty sure I know this one too. The naughty girl would be Elizaveta Bathory. As for the country I'm a bit hesitant. I'm inclined to say Romania or Moldovia but that's probably a Vlad Dracul leftover. The name Bathory sounds like it's from

Hungary.

How does one know Countess Bathory? This is how:
Not for the faint of heart

Hungary is correct! Also where my wife is from, though I have yet to find her bathing in the blood of virgins.

Well I'll be damned! Not too often I come across a piece of European history that I'd never heard anything about before.

I'm familiar with the Hungarian aristocratic Bathory family name certainly, but I'd never heard of this infamous member of the family. There were medieval kings of Hungary and Poland from the Bathory family. Definitely a very old and illustrious noble family.

Nobody tell the Clinton conspiracy theorists or they will find a connection.

Hungarian women bathe in the souls of their lovers

Dammit, now it's my turn again. Let's try a simple one. It being 24C again today made me look up which is the coldest country in the world. That's yearly average temperature for the whole country. Which is it?
