Wow. So Texas is bigger than any non-disputed-as-being-in-Europe countries. (I always learned in school that Russia was in Asia, but I do understand why it's considered part of Europe, both here and elsewhere. And plus Russia's bigger than everything anyway, regardless of what continent it's part of). That's crazy.

The Ural and Caucasus mountains and the Caspian sea are usually used as borders between Europe and Asia, and though most of Russian land is East of the Ural, its capital and most of its population stand in its European part. Europe and Asia are artificial constructs anyway, none of them fit the definition of a continent.

Our news doesn't use Rhode Islands or Vatican Cities, they must be imperial measurements.

The other metric measurements we use on this side of the water are Belgiums (22.8 per Texas), Yorkshires (58.4 p/T) and Lancashires (226 p/T), but don't tell anyone from Yorkshire about that last one

The Australian state of Western Australia is 4.3 times the size of Ukraine and 3.8 times the size of Texas. It is equivalent to a 127.32 Wales', 841.48 Rhode Islands, and 6,012,761.36 Vatican City's. It also has a population density of a mere 1.02 persons per square kilometre, making it less than Mongolia as the least densely populated country, at 1.97 persons per square kilometre. If it was a country it would be the 10th largest in the world, just after Kazakhstan in 9th and knocking Algeria down to 11th.

Because some people refuse to accept the European part of Russia. Though the size should give it away. And what's quite interesting is that even though it's just the area on the European side it's still bigger than the other countries combined!

I think a bigger part is not refusing to accept it, but just not knowing it, or even have been taught in school that it didnt belong to europe.

I think peoples eagerness on this site to get points is bigger than their stubbornness in refusing to typer certain answers. Though it might be close ;)

Feb 28, 2018
Hi there. I didn't approve the resubmit because it's not consistent with the rest of our quizzes. It doesn't seem like Svalbard is incorporated with the rest of Norway, so it would be somewhat similar to how we don't include Greenland in the area of Denmark. Obviously, this is somewhat up for interpretation, but I think it's best to go with Wikipedia's information unless there is a definite reason not to.

Aug 15, 2018
You said that Greenland wasn't included as part of Denmark because it isn't in Europe. Fair enough. But then you should count Svalbard and Bear Island (and possibly Jan Mayen) as part of the area of Norway because they ARE in Europe.

Italy is classified as a subcontinent, being recognized as one by many prestigious organizations, e.t. UN, NATO, AU. I guess it is possible to assume Italy being part of the larger continent, but its classification in the scientific world speaks volumes regarding to the economic independence of a land locked country of its sort.

Svalbard, and two island in Antarctic waters, Peter I and Bouvet, are Norwegian. Thus Norway's correct size is 385 207 km2. The Danes must fend for themselves re. Greenland (that they stole from us!).
