If Georgia Were a Storage Unit, What Countries Would Fit Inside?
Our maps show how different countries would fit inside Georgia
Georgia is the 24th-largest US state by area, its 59,425 square miles placing it smack dab in the middle among US states. While that may not come as much of a surprise to those familiar with the US map, this probably will: if Georgia declared its independence and became its own country, it would also rank in the middle of the pack for size. That's right: among the 200-odd countries in existence, Georgia would be the 92nd largest by area. That means that there are roughly 108 countries that are smaller than Georgia. In order to illustrate how some of these countries compare in size to Georgia, we came up with a hypothetical scenario appropriate for SelfStorage.com: if Georgia were a storage unit, how would other countries fit inside?
Of course, using maps to illustrate size is a tricky matter, since most 2D map projections distort size in favor of shape. This includes the Mercator Projection used by Google Maps. Fortunately, we found thetruesize.com, a tool which runs on top of Google Maps and accounts for these distortions, allowing for accurate size comparisons. Now you can see exactly how these countries would fit inside of your Georgia self storage unit.
