What If the Largest Countries Had the Biggest Populations?

Strange Maps' Frank Jacobs sets the stage:
What if the world were rearranged so that the inhabitants of the country with the largest population would move to the country with the largest area? And the second-largest population would migrate to the second-largest country, and so on?
Here's the result:



Oddly enough, the people of four countries wouldn't have to pull up stakes and move if the world was reorganized this way: Brazil, Ireland, the United States and Yemen.


Queen Elizabeth II, the Largest Individual Landowner on Earth

Who Owns the World
Originally Published on February 27, 2007

Queen Elizabeth II, head of state of the United Kingdom and of 31 other states and territories, is the legal owner of about 6,600 million acres of land, one sixth of the earth’s non ocean surface. She is the only person on earth who owns whole countries, and who owns countries that are not her own domestic territory.

This land ownership is separate from her role as head of state and is different from other monarchies where no such claim is made – Norway, Belgium, Denmark etc...

Her main holdings are 2,467 million acres in Canada (the 2nd largest country on earth), 1,900 million acres in Australia (the 7th largest country on earth), 114 million acres in the Papua New Guinea, 66 million acres in New Zealand, and 60 million acres in the UK. She is the world’s largest landowner by a significant margin.

Largest Five Personal Landowners on Earth:
Queen Elizabeth II (6,600 million acres)
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia (553 million acres)
King Bhumibol of Thailand (126 million acres)
King Mohammed IV of Morocco (113 million acres)
Sultan Quaboos of Oman (76 million acres)

The next largest landowner is the Russian state, with an overall ownership of 4,219 million acres, and a direct ownership comparable with the Queen’s land holding of 2,447 million acres. The 3rd largest landowner is the Chinese state, which claims all of Chinese land, about 2,365 million acres. The 4th largest landowner on earth is the Federal Government of the United States, which owns about one third of the land of the USA, 760 million acres. The fifth largest landowner on earth is the King of Saudi Arabia with 553 million acres.
