If you include Alaska, which everyone should, U.S. beats China.

Jul 26, 2016
Some sources include the United States' ocean territory as part of its LAND area, which makes it completely biased.

Level 81

I love it when people confidently assert something that is completely wrong or blindingly obvious. As you say, everyone should include Alaska and as it turns out, everyone does. This is not the source of the dispute over whether or not the US or China is the third-largest country. The dispute centres on the inclusion or otherwise of US coastal waters, which sources such as the CIA World Factbook do for the US, but not for other countries. Leaving out China's disputed claims (in the South China Sea, Taiwan and the Himalaya) and the US's coastal waters, China is indisputably the larger of the two countries, though they are nonetheless very close in size.

And why would you not include water that is landlocked? The only reason not to do so would be to make China look bigger.

We do include water that is landlocked. Hence the Great Lakes.

Whether you include enclosed bodies of water or not, China is larger than the US. The US only becomes larger when you include oceanic waters in its figure. If you exclude enclosed bodies of water both the US and China leapfrog Canada, with China going to 2 in the world and the US to 3. It's difficult to find a like for like comparison that puts the US ahead of China in area.

Tbh if you didn't use inland waters China is actually 2nd, USA is 3rd and Canada is 4th

And Russia would be 1st by a large margin. Here are the top 5:

1. Russia (16,376,870 km squared)

2. China (9,388,211 km squared)

3. USA (9,147,420 km squared)

4. Canada (9,093,510 km squared)

5. Brazil (8,358,140 km squared)

6th-10th in land + water areas stay in their same spots, and #10, Algeria, is especially peculiar because they have 0% of their area in water.

Why is Denmark not included in this list ? With Greenland and Faroe Islands, it overcomes Saudi Arabia in superficy.

Those quizzes mostly excluding territories, that are not integrated in the "main country", like oversea territories and similar stuff.

Greenland was integrated fully into Denmark in 1913. Although, it was an overseas region since the 1850s, so, yeah.

Not since 1953, it is now semi-autonomous and can pretty much go whenever time allows.

Greenland is a component country of the Danish crown just like Scotland is to the UK. Denmark should be included as a result.

Consider Turkey and Pakistan. Greenland is claimed by Denmark and increases the spatial area when only considering Denmark’s mainland.

If you mean that Pakistan and Turkey were very close to being part of this quiz, that is not the case. Pakistan is the 33rd largest country by area and Turkey is 36th.

I don't understand this site's complete exclusion of the area of Greenland. Whether it stands alone or as a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, it (Nuuk/Copenhagen) should come 12th on the list just after DR Congo at 2,166,086 km2 for just Greenland or 2,210,408 km2 for the entire Kingdom of Denmark.

Regardless, excluding it as a country because it's part of Denmark but not including it as a part of Denmark is incredibly confusing. It's nearly 1.5 percent of the world's total land area just completely missing
