Knarf is right. The majority of people live in European Russia, west of the Ural Mountains. Past that is small villages and frozen tundra.

Well, first part is true. But I wouldn't count Novosibirsk (third largest City in Russia), Omsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Chelyabinsk, Khabarovsk, Vladivostok... as "small villages".

What's your point? It shouldn't be a mystery that Canada is not on this list if you understand Canadian geography. Over 80% of the land is uninhabitable because of permafrost. Before you throw in Russia as a retort, be aware that it has less land above the arctic circle than Canada, and although about 77% of its landmass is in Asia, the majority of its massive population (about 110M) live on the European side and that's how it makes this list. Canada has a population of close to 37M...which is how it doesn't make this list.

They both have slightly under 42 million people. According to worldometers.info Algeria is currently slightly ahead but Sudan was in the lead last year. Neither appear on the quiz, now, though.
