Just missed: Guatemala and China. Also, Rwanda and Burundi would have appeared on the list but are slightly too small.

That surprised me, I thought Rwanda and Burundi would've been big enough.

According to Wikipedia Maine is about 90K. Looks like Maryland might be a better comparison. Hawaii is close but maybe harder to visualise because it is so remote

I assume El Salvador, Israel, Haiti and Lebanon would have made it onto the list as well, were they not too small. Even Belgium just barely makes the cut, being 30,528 square kilometers in size...

The biggest challenge was trying to visualize how big 30,000 km2 is. Maybe give some sort of indication how big that is in the instructions?

I tend to have the same problem - and it's not km^2 versus mi^2 - it's just hard for many people to visualize land areas that large. BTW, per Wikipedia, Lesotho is just above the 30k mark, and Armenia is just below.

in the notes you could write down the name of the biggest country that is less than 30,000 km2

I'm encouraged that the mile users are grown up enough to admit this has nothing to do with units. Would expect different comments if the exception was made in sq mi instead of sq km.

Maybe he's offering up an example of a country just above the target size.

Being used to Mercator projections at school doesn't help either...

Please accept "uk" for United Kingdom. It's standard across the other country quizzes.

All images from North Korea we ocidentals see are enormous empty spaces in the cities, I supposed it was sparsely inhabited. Nepal, being so... "mountainous", I was sure it would have low density.

QM, it would be nice if you accepted "the DR" for the Dominican Republic, and it would also lessen the number of freebies for Dominica on certain quizzes.

This quiz is a great idea: it really made me think deeply because you have to consider the size as well as the population.

Really surprised Nepal was on here and Haiti was not, or maybe Haiti is too small will have to check

I was shocked by Haiti's absence too. It must be just a tad too small. It's certainly dense enough.

Missed DR, NK and Uganda. North Korea never shows up for anything! They've found their niche
