Know Thy World!

An article titled Americans, Know Thy World on Blogcritics Magazine provides a size comparison for countries of the world to cities and states in the US. I am frequently asked how large Libya is. Now, I know it is one-sixth larger than Alaska. This map, which shows Alaska's real relative size, gives a very clear idea of Libya's relative size to the US.
