For comparison, the population density of the United States is 94 people per square mile.

This quiz uses square kilometers, so a better comparison is that the USA is 35 people per square kilometer.

Interesting, I'd be curious to know where Algeria sits on this list. It is such a large country, and as far as I know most of the country's population is on the coast.

Chad, Libya, Mali, Mauritania... Seems to me there are quite a few large Saharan countries on this list.

Kinda crazy how South Sudan makes the list but not Sudan considering its' geography is pretty similar to Egypt but it has less than half the population and more than double the area

So Niger did not make it and currently more populated than Mali? Well, that population growth is too much. There are no resources, only sand and stones. Demographic disaster in the making.

I see, that I wrote this comment 11 days before the 2023 Niger coup. I had some feelings...

Didn't realize Algeria packed 'em in so tight -- looks pretty big on the map.
