Chess is not popular in Japan, that's why there are few players. This is well known. You assumed population because you had less information than me, but now you know.

Amount of chess players = Chess players per capita (i.e. popularity) * population.

Yes, it's very relevant if you're trying to do an estimate without knowing anything else... you'd just use population * percentage of humans who play.

And it's also relevant if you know the actual popularity...
