Every country in the CIA factbook is compared in size with a US state or with the US in general.

(It’s hilarious – Germany is “slightly smaller than Montana”, the UK is “slightly smaller than Oregon”, Europe is “less than one-half the size of the US”, China is “slightly smaller than the US”, Russia is “approximately 1.8 times the size of the US” and the world – I kid you not – the world is “about 16 times the size of the US”. That is sooo ludicrous. At the end of the day we all end up with about the same area of land to call our own.)
