The policies that generate opportunities, the people who drive the effort, and the history that defines the environment and viewpoint contribute to a country riches and prosperity.
- Russia – It is undoubtedly the world’s largest by area, with a million square kilometres. Russia would still be the largest if 7 million square kilometres were removed—and the lopped-off part would rank sixth overall! It is the equivalent of 11% of the world’s landmass. It has a total length of 17,098,242 kilometres.
- Canada -Its 9.984 million square kilometres make it the biggest country in the Western Hemisphere, and its 202,080-kilometer coastline makes it the longest in the world. With a population density of four persons per square kilometre, everyone of Canada’s 35 million people could enjoy 61 acres to themselves.
- U.S.A – It is larger than China yet somewhat smaller than Canada, which has a land area of 9.83 million square kilometres. Its territories would make it the fourth-largest country in the world, behind China. The United States, which is bordered to the south by Mexico and to the north by Canada, is home to a varied range of landscape and fauna.
- China – The United States of America and Canada each occupy less than 7% of the earth’s surface. China, at 9.6 million square kilometres, is the smallest of these three. Furthermore, contested regions are not included in that number. In terms of land size, it is the world’s second largest country, with only the United States of America and Canada having larger if water is included. China has 14 borders, including Afghanistan to the west, Russia to the north, and Vietnam to the south. It is Asia’s biggest country completely.
- Brazil – With an area of approximately 8.51 million square kilometres, it is the biggest nation in South America. Brazil is home to a major portion of the world’s biggest rainforest, the Amazon. Because the Amazon is so dense and wide, explorers and scientists have discovered human civilizations that had never been in contact with the outside world.
It is clear that the initial positions in both rankings are significantly different. Only Russia, the United States, China, Brazil, and India are in the top ten of both lists. It’s worth noting that all of these nations contain significant deserted desert or mountain areas. As a result, settlement is centred largely in big conurbations with high population density.
