Business Insider created 11 maps showing the comparisons of land areas of this fine world. Every map is skewed in some way or another due to flattening a spherical surface. The map on a map puts full countries inside other countries giving a true sense of the size of certain land masses. For Example; The entire U.S. fits inside all of Russia twice, and the second smallest country in the world Monaco fits inside New York city almost four-hundred times. A great visual guide to getting a true idea of the size of the planet.
