Amusingly, due to its size the population density of the Vatican (1,818/km2) is higher than its actual population of approx 850-1000.

It's not. Just the first number in the density figure is higher. If you divide it by square km, then it's the same.

Kind of like saying 6/3 is more than 2. It's the same number.

He is saying that the population of 1 square kilometer with the Vatican City's density is greater than the population of the Vatican City. I found this fascinating as well, Corrode.

No to be fair I see what Corrode's getting at. Yeah it's mathematically obvious, but it's still a funny reflection on how tiny the Vatican is.

It also means that the Vatican normally has around 2 popes per square kilometre. Just to confound this, it currently has around 4 popes per square kilometre if we include emeritus..

It merely means that Vatican City has an area of under 1 square kilometer. Any country that it that small has the same result.

Me too. It's the only one of the micronations missing. I imagine that, because it's smack in the middle of the mountains, it can't accommodate a high population density.

But Liechtenstein is also in the middle of the mountains. Andorra is actually about 3 times bigger than Liechtenstein in area but less than twice as many people.

Shows how consistently dense the uk and Germany are. Especially considering that Scotland wales and Northern Ireland are fairly sparse, England has 55 million people in a fairly small area.
