Countries closest to US states in area & population

Can you name all of the countries that are closest in both area & number of people to these US states?
Comparisons were made to the best of my ability using data from Wikipedia of both country & state total areas & population estimates (2015). If you think they are incorrect do tell me.

I think you had some problem with the areas... I haven't checked all, but I believe you took the area of Tunisia in sqkm and the area of California in sqmi. Also, for Rhode Island, Samoa is closer in terms of area than Comoros. Maybe some double-checking would be needed?

It seems you were right, thank you so much it's been very helpful. Many apologies for my simple error. I really should stop making quizzes late at night! After some review I think I've got it right now. Let me know if not.
