Methodology is averaging the rank of the sizes.

Russia is rank 1 in the world by land area and China is rank 3. So the average of the two is 2.

Likewise Canada=2 and USA=4; Average=3

Sometime between late 2017 and now China overtook Canada as the second largest country, so it's now 1.5 and 3.5 for those examples.

This probably includes inland fresh water, but excludes non-freshwater internal waters. By which measure Canada is larger, China is larger when it is purely measured on land, but I’m not sure how Canada would feel about having its lakes left out. They are ‘Great’ after all…

I misunderstood the methodology as well (thinking the length of the border was important) and asked myself the same question. But now that I get it Chile is definitely out of the picture. I mean it's not thaaaaat big of a country even though its elongated shape makes you think otherwise.

China is 2 and India is 7, average is 4.5. China is 2 and Pakistan is 33, average is 17.5. India at 7 and Pakistan at 33 average to 20, just off the list.
