In a gobsmacking sign of national geekery, the term Danes most searched for on Google in 2015, was ‘agar.io' — a massively multiplayer game where you play a single-cell life form in a giant petridish.

Instead Agar.io topped the list, revealing the Danes' secret addiction. 
 
The game, released by Brazilian developer Matheus Valadares in April, has become one of the surprise online hits the year. 
 
Agar.io is not the only search showing up the Danes as a nation of science-loving geeks. 
 
The second most searched for topic was ‘Solar Eclipse', as the country worked out how a glimpse of the partial eclipse that hit the country in March. 
 
The year's most searched for man, meanwhile, was Andreas Mogensen, the engineer and astronaut who in September become the first Dane in space, when he blasted up to the International Space Station on Soyuz TMA-18M. 
 
Aside from that, Danes' search habits were boringly normal. 
 
The third most searched for term was the Eurojackpot, then the Tour de France. 'Valg 2015', the general election in June, came in at a lowly fifth place. 
 
The list of “What…?” questions was headed by “What should I vote?”, reflecting Danish puzzlement over this month's confusing EU referendum. 
 
Here are Danes' ten most searched for terms:
