We saw the true size of Africa, relative to the world’s largest countries, by Kai Krause last year. Taking it in the other direction, xefer shows the true size of Vatican City, world’s smallest state, with an area of approximately 110 acres. That’s just big enough to house a handful of national formations and man-made structures.

  • Love this post Nathan, especially as I have personally walked the full perimeter of the Vatican back in 07. Only took me 3 hours – Phenomenal place.
