Most countries don't use the English alphabet

I strongly suspect that most countries (and certainly a majority of the world population) use a super-set of the English alphabet though.

Your suspicions are incorrect. Only 36% of the world’s population uses the Latin alphabet.


If you count Chinese who are using Pinyin that jumps to being a majority using latin.

I stand corrected
