Its a risk calculator for businesses:

You decide to setup shop in some country based on what it tells your the risk is.

Btw, I found this info with a simple Google search.

The dots just represent countries risk factor from poorest on the left to the highest on the right,

If you click on the show factors additional dot charts show up. Notice each dot corresponds to a country on the map.

These are just cute ways of representing data to catch your attention.

Personally, I liked Hans Rosling's presentation of population growth in the World:

Is there any significance to the shape of each little cluster in the horizontal layout below the map? For example, you have some clusters that look like horizontal Christmas trees. Within each tree you have vertical curved groups of dots. Does this mean anything?

I think it was just a way of stacking them without an overlap on a single line so you could see their proximity and you could hover over them or click them for more info.

I dont see any other order other than left to right lowest to highest with no overlap.
