Countries representing 0.55 million people have MDY as their official format.

There's a reason that >99.9% of the global population do something else. Putting the least significant of the three date parts in the middle is just being perverse.

    99.9% is far off. Over half a billion people (8%) are associated with countries using D int he middle. You didn't account for countries using YDM, as well a counters using MDY plus another format. But this isn't about that. There was no middle. There was just two numbers.
