interesting facts about population:
1987 => 5 billion
1999 => 6 billion
2012 => 7 billion
2019 => 7.7 billion (current)
Interesting to see how much the population has increased in my lifetime. I was born in 1988, so the world has recently hit 5 billion people when I was spawned.
This is one of those games where the playerbase just keeps increasing.
