It would be interesting to find out how those numbers compare to total population of that country

I thought about that - obviously simple enough to do. Here are some examples, very approximately:

Country Players per 1000 people
Australia 16
NZ 3
PNG 2
Tonga 1
USA 0.003

Interesting to see how NZ and PNG are doing very well in the totals given their populations, and even Tonga after just a couple of years. The penetration is comparatively tiny in the US, but conversely it has huge potential because of its massive population.
