It wasn't until about half way through when I saw Canada higher than the USA that I realized you wanted land area and not population.

I think it would be fair if scambigol got a star for this quiz - all the answers in this quiz are identical to his; in fact all the data for the answers will have been calculated by him.

I think the reason he made one himself and credited scambigol is because scambigol used a yellow box and letters for the second half; this does not.

very smart way of looking at things. put things in a new perspective.

Europe is well balanced, whereas Oceania is overwhelmingly land dominated by Australia. Cool Quizz; Thank you!

It is, but I enjoy quizzes like this because it encourages us to think about things from a different perspective. I recall one quiz, "Countries larger than Texas," that is also basically a list of the largest countries in the world...but then you see that there are only 40 countries bigger than Texas, and it gives you an idea just how large Texas is (and, of course, how large the US is). So you still gain something new, while brushing up on your list of giant countries.

Not really. There are a bunch of massive countries in Asia that aren't on the list, and some smaller ones in Europe and S. America that are.

Maybe it's interesting to add that the 38,9% Russia is the European part, and that the 30,0% part is Asian.
