I noticed nobody else started on this, so I might as well. I didn't think China was bigger than the U.S.? http://www.indexmundi.com/factbook/compare/china.united-states

China has always been bigger. Some sites, like the World Factbook, take in the water area (not inland water) of the US (and not for any other country) which makes it even bigger. But without including the US's water area and China's disputed areas (Mainly Taiwan and Spratly Islands), China is, without a doubt, the bigger country of the two.

I'm American, and other than making sure the facts are correct, why does it matter? I don't know of anyone (except apparently the CIA) who runs around shouting, "Ha ha, my country's bigger than yours!"

I was China, the US and Canada would annex swaths of land or set some people loose. They're all so close, but everyone makes like it's a huge difference.

Some sources include the United States' ocean territory as part of its LAND area, which makes it completely biased.

I love it when people confidently assert something that is completely wrong or blindingly obvious. As you say, everyone should include Alaska and as it turns out, everyone does. This is not the source of the dispute over whether or not the US or China is the third-largest country. The dispute centres on the inclusion or otherwise of US coastal waters, which sources such as the CIA World Factbook do for the US, but not for other countries. Leaving out China's disputed claims (in the South China Sea, Taiwan and the Himalaya) and the US's coastal waters, China is indisputably the larger of the two countries, though they are nonetheless very close in size.

And why would you not include water that is landlocked? The only reason not to do so would be to make China look bigger.

We do include water that is landlocked. Hence the Great Lakes.

Whether you include enclosed bodies of water or not, China is larger than the US. The US only becomes larger when you include oceanic waters in its figure. If you exclude enclosed bodies of water both the US and China leapfrog Canada, with China going to 2 in the world and the US to 3. It's difficult to find a like for like comparison that puts the US ahead of China in area.

Greenland is a component country of the Danish crown just like Scotland is to the UK. Denmark should be included as a result.
