"but if you convert that to metric units then it's roughly the same. Also, Spain has more empanadas" - I feel like this is the point people should have picked up Kalbahamut was not being entirely serious. Actually, I think that point was probably his first comment, but definitely by here.

Um... @kalbahamut is right though. Spain and Canada are not exactly the same size, but they're close if you convert it to the right units. It's 19.73 times bigger in inches, but that is just under 1 metre... It's just the Mercator projection. Ellesmere Island in Canada is named after Ellesmere, Shropshire, England because they are the same size, for example. And Spain has more people and more cities called Madrid. It also has more international borders and is further east. @bridog is Fake News.

Why such distorted shapes for Canada and Russia? You don't have to use projections designed to show the whole world when you're just showing one country.
+1
level 60
Jan 6, 2015
"Designed to show the whole world", no it's designed to show 99% of the world, the area around the poles would be near infinite. By the way, we already had better projections in the 20th century (Robinson, Sinusoid etc). Why not use those? @Kfroog. I agree with you, but I have a more anti-Mercator opinion than you.
