I think in the CIA's imagination :)
Huge differences like that, I'm afraid it says more about the differences
of the definition of what consists of a motor road. For instance, I know
the road network in OSM Bolivia to be far from complete as to smaller motor
roads, but it's way over 100% of the CIA number. So they probably only took
the main road network as a measure. Meanwhile, OSM is mapping roads that no
other map has ever mapped :)
