South Africa is the southernmost country in Africa. It borders Nairobi, Botswana, and Zimbabwe to the north, Mozambique to the east, the Indian Ocean is to the south and east, and the Atlantic Ocean is to the west. Lesotho and Swaziland are two tiny nations that are totally within or almost within South Africa.

Can I ask for an explanation of why overseas territories are not counted as part of the nation's land area? Bringing up the Denmark and Greenland issue, Greenland is a piece of land on Earth. Therefore it makes up part of the earth's surface. What you are asking for is the nations on Earth with the largest land area, and whether it is physically connected to the mainland of the nation that owns it or not, Greenland is still a part of Earth, and is under the control of Denmark. I just don't see how water separating the two parts should prevent it from being counted. Can someone please explain?

Greenland as part of Denmark should probably count; although there is a debate as to whether it "belongs" to Denmark, is a sovereign nation, or somewhere in between. Not including territories is sensible in that overseas claims such as those on Antarctica are not universally accepted

People need to learn to read directions!! About a bajillion people have said that "Greenland is missing" or "Where is Greenland?" or some variant of those. I mean weren't people taught to read directions in Kindergarten, with that assignment where if you didn't follow the first direction: Do not do any of this, you would get everything wrong?

Wikipedia has a sortable table of countries by area. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_and_dependencies_by_area You can see that when the list is sorted descending using only land area that China is larger than both Canada and the US, but of course if you sort by total area, the list changes substantially. It should also be noted that if Greenland is technically considered a part of the kingdom of Denmark, which would make it 2.16 million sq. km, just bigger than Saudi Arabia. And Antarctica, is the second largest 'landmass' after Russia, but it is claimed by several countries.

China is bigger, but the US, according to the CIA Factbook, is bigger due to the fact that they include coastal water area, which brings the area of the US much bigger
