Reorder the World based on Their Populations

As we all know, the size of the country doesn’t necessary reflect their population. While some countries have rather dense populations, others offer a bit more breathing room. But what would the world look like if the largest countries had the biggest populations? Imgur user JPalmz decided to scramble the world map so that each country’s population was reflected by its corresponding mass of land.


That being said, China takes over Russia as the most populated Country, India takes Canada as the second, and Indonesia takes China as the third. Canada has to move to where Pakistan is while Russia shifts to its neighbor, Kazakhstan.

Interestingly, the United States, Yemen, Brazil, and Ireland didn’t have to move at all because their land size and population rankings matched.
