Russia Is Almost Twice As Big As America … Or China

The Bear Is Almost As Big As U.S. and China COMBINED

As an American, I’ve had a hazy understanding that Russia is big … but I had no idea how big.

It turns out that Russia is by far the largest country in the world … almost 1.8 times the size of the U.S (Russia in blue, U.S. in red):

US Versus Russia

But isn’t China a huge country, also?

Yes … but China only has slightly more than half of the land of Russia (Russia in blue, China in red)::

Put another way, the U.S. and China together have only slightly more land that Russia has.
