Not in American politics, no. So therefore, I know nothing about it.

Is when a valid question?
edit: you said 'current data' so nevermind.
Brown should signify nazis, but as far as I know they were not in the running recently, so no idea.

You might want to think of a party that doesn't call itself Nazi, but still merits the colour brown as a symbol to aid political recognition. I mean everywhere except in Merka, left-leaning parties are couloured red even though they aren't the Communist Party of ROWland, right?

Ah, now I see it.

The right one is AfD, but the left one is not Die Linke.

Oh dear. Two in a row that tanked. I am sorry.

The graph showes, on the left side, the percentage of foreign-born people in the population, and on the right side, the percentage of votes for the AfD, the right-populist, xenophobic party that is currently in the news.

One can see that the distrubtion is roughly anti-proportional: The less durdy furriners, the more right-wing extremism, fear of "Überfremdung" (being overwhelmed by foreigners", "Islamisierung", etc. The more migrants in the population, the less votes for the pre-fascists.

Tells a lesson, doesn't it?
I'll try another one:

Well it has to be more about foreign policy/diplomacy than about economic ties, because there's quite a lot of trade between the US and China.

That is an excdellent observation, of course, but the lines aren't meant to represent a quantity, but rather, a quality.

I was thinking of how well the countries get on with each other.

US and Russia do have diplomatic representation, so it can't be that.

But you are quite on the right track. Not diplomacy in the strict sense, but think of the nature of the threats the Orange One has been hurling at most everyone for the last months.

I thought sanctions but the EU has them against Russia, and it doesn't look like tarrifs.

It's even more general. The coulours red-yellow-green are chosen to represent a (very, very rough semi-quantitative) judgement,

Well I was thinking "ally" (green), "enemy" (red), and somewhere in between (yellow).

That is the essence, so the cigar goes to you. In particular, the graph is about trade relations: Good, under tension, active conflict.

So the Euroweasels and Canada get along, and so do China and Iran, both unsurprisingly, but probably not for the same reason.

Saudi Arabia has shut out Canada from most of their trade because Canada DARED say maybe could they maybe, please, not stone their women, spank and behead critics of the government or force girls back into the burning school house they just fled from because females in the streets without a guardian is an abomination unto God. You know, the kind of sissy stuff those overfine Canaweasels would say whenever they meet real men.

The FGCOATITEW is chummy with Saudi Arabia, and with no-one else (you're the greatest, absolutely, ever, Mr. President; you too, Your Majesty) has tensions simmering with almost everyone else, and is in active conflict with countries representing about 25 % of the ROW's population throwing around tariffs and sanctions. Very stable genius indeed (The red line between Europe and Russia is the sanctions for the Ukraine annexion).

On to you, International Man of mystery.

My guess was Former Greatest Country Of All Time In The Entire World. But it could just be a German compound noun.

Almost right. The first F is for, well, what F is for. But of, course, it could also mean "forever". Otherwise, slam dunk.

I'll try tho think of an appropriate German compound word. promise.
