So I think we deserve a caveat if Denmark is excluded :)
An interesting point is that in 1825 the balance tipped more in favour of the islands, when a flood permanently split off the North Jutlandic Island from the peninsula, adding about 4600 km2 to the island column. Still, in the absence of another such event, the mainland still wins over the islands.
Population-wise, it's a different story with a bit over 3.4 million of Denmark's 5.75 million living on the islands - 2.2 million on Zealand alone.
