I'm always astonished by India's appearance on these lists. It may be a big country, but its population is unbelievably large.

The traditional Chinese regions along the Yellow and Yangtze rivers are also very densely populated. But the modern China has brought that down by annexing sparsely populated Tibet, Xinxiang, Manchuria and Inner Mongolia.

Yes, pretty mind-boggling. I've been there just once and travelled mostly by train, and couldn't believe how, wherever we went, town or countryside, there were people, people everywhere. And it's a big area as well.

Really surprised Japan isn't on this list. Guess all those little islands add up to enough space to move them down the list.

There are a lot of areas of Japan that are agricultural or mountainous. This is not the image most people of Japan though....

Yes, I understand it's a bit like Australia, almost everyone crammed into a small area and big swathes of the country quite sparsely populated.

A lot of unhabitable mountainous area -- only about 30% of its land can be built upon. But the flat areas are pretty packed.

They are all basically cities surrounded by desert. The cities have large population density, but the deserts very low.

There are multiple cities in both Qatar and the Emirates, but, yeah, still mostly desert.

Not *that* densely. Western China is, for the most part, pretty sparsely populated.

Palestine is more of a country than Kosovo because more countries recognize it, but Jetpunk considers Kosovo a country and Palestine not one. Maybe it should rethink.

Are you facepalming at the fact its insanely high density and population are a poor way to go, due to the fact it will suffer severely from overcrowding, climate change and lack of resources

or are you just facepalming at the fact you missed it?

The 7th largest country in the world still makes the list... Above Qatar, Kuwait and Brunei, Japan and Sri Lanka. Absolutely wild. I mean.. I knew that the density is about the same as Israel or the Netherlands... But I kind of still can't wrap my head around it. Especially since India has deserts in the West, parts of the Himalaya in the North and sparsely populated areas in the Northeast. This country is just wild.
