The Average Country

The Average Country Based on World Land Area and Population


Updated November 05, 2007
A geographical average not often discussed is the average size of a country. However, the average area and population of the 194 countries of the world is very interesting.

The average land area of a country, based on the land area comprising the earth is approximately 767,731 square kilometers (296,422 square miles) - slightly smaller than Turkey but much larger than Chile or Zambia.

Using a world population of 6.6 billion people, the "average" population of a country is 34,020,600, smaller than Kenya but larger than Morocco.
