I recently played in a tournament in Iran (Fajr Cup, u2000), where 1600-rated players were a serious threat, and 1400-rated players would fight to the last pawn. I don't think a single opponent of mine made significant tactical errors--they know how to calculate. In my opinion, these players are vastly underrated, maybe by 300+ rating points. I also play in China, which is also considered an underrated country (but Iran seems more underrated).
Players suggest countries for relatively easy rating points and FIDE title norms: A WGM suggested France or Spain, and a WFM suggested Turkey to me. I'm tempted to go norm hunting, but I wonder where.
Question: Which countries are easiest to gain rating points and earn FIDE titles in?
I'm after something a bit more concrete than some random countries, e.g., the usual places players go to get rating points and norms.
