Our maps show how different countries would fit Vermont

Ok, so we all know that Vermont isn't exactly a large state. To be more specific, Vermont's 9,616 square miles would only rank it as the 45th largest state, just behind nearby Massachusetts. However, believe it or not, there are actually quite a few countries that are smaller than Vermont. In fact, if Vermont were a country, it would rank as the 146th largest by area. That may not be an impressive rank, but considering that there are roughly 200 countries out there, it does mean that Vermont is larger than about 54 of them. In order to illustrate how some of these countries compare in size to Vermont, we came up with a hypothetical scenario appropriate for SelfStorage.com: if Vermont 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 Vermont self storage unit.
