Hi there, first time using this forum, so if I'm missing out on a provided link, please don't chew me up. Smile

I am looking for a website that displays the world's geo-political divisions in a percentage form. I have found some in numerical, but in all honesty math frightens me.

I've found out that China is as large as 1/15th of the worlds total land mass, for example. I would like to be able to find a site that would narrow that sort of percentage to 0.02% (I'm thinking Moraco would fit in here).

Thanks for any info you may have!

Use your web browser to go to the following web page :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Countries_by_area

To obtain an area by percentage lets consider Russia from the list of countries at that webpage.

World LAND area=148940000 sq kilometres. (see first line in table)
Russia=17075200 sq kilometres

then Russia occupies 100 X 17075200/148940000 = 11.46 percent of the land in the world.
