Ten places that don't have any Internet connectivity at all

Sometimes it seems like the Internet is everywhere, but it isn't, quite. Although most of the world has some degree of Internet connectivity, great big chunks still do not. Most prosperous countries do have Internet and exploit its potential, but many poor countries don't want it, don't need it, or simply have bigger problems than getting a local Internet node.

Other factors include the number of universities, the literacy rate, and the number of English-speaking people there (the Internet is, for better or for worse, primarily an English-language community.) The major exception in the list below is Vatican City, Rome. Perhaps folks they don't need the Internet- -it may be in the best-connected place of all.
