Notes[eedit | eedit soorce]

  1. The figur shawn disna include the aurie o Crimea (27,000 km2 or 10,000 sq mi), de facto controlled bi Roushie, claimed bi Ukraine.
  2. The follaein kintras hae territorial claims in Antarcticae: Argentinae (969,000 km2 or 374,000 sq mi), Australie (5,896,500 km2 or 2,276,700 sq mi), Chile (1,250,000 km2 or 480,000 sq mi), Fraunce (432,000 km2 or 167,000 sq mi), New Zealand (450,000 km2 or 170,000 sq mi), Norawa (2,500,000 km2 or 970,000 sq mi) an Unitit Kinrick (1,395,000 km2 or 539,000 sq mi), which tae some extent owerlap. The aurie frae 90°W tae 150°W (2,100,000 km2 or 810,000 sq mi) is currently unclaimed territory. Thir auries uisually hae na human indwallers, excludin scientists.
  3. 3.0 3.1 The follaein twa primar soorces (non-mirrored) represent the range (min./max.) o tot aurie for Cheenae an the Unitit States. Baith soorces (1) exclude Taiwan frae the aurie o Cheenae; (2) exclude Cheenae's coastal an territorial watters Houever, the CIA World Factbook includes the Unitit States coastal an territorial waters, while Encyclopædia Britannica excludes the Unitit States coastal an territorial watters.
    1. The Encyclopædia Britannica leets Cheenae as warld's third-lairgest kintra (efter Roushie an Canadae) wi a tot aurie o 9,572,900 sq km,[3] an the Unitit States as fowert-lairgest at 9,525,067 sq km.[4]
    2. The CIA World Factbook leets Cheenae as fowert-lairgest kintra (efter Roushie, Canadae an the Unitit States) wi a tot aurie o 9,596,960 sq km,[5] an the Unitit States as the third-lairgest at 9,833,517 sq km.[6]

    Notably, Encyclopædia Britannica specifies the Unitit States' aurie (excludin coastal an territorial watters) as 9,525,067 sq km, which is less nor either soorce's figur gien for Cheenae's aurie.[4] Tharefore, while it can be determined that Cheenae haes a lairger aurie excludin coastal an territorial waters, it is unclear which kintra haes a lairger aurie includin coastal an territorial watters.


    Unitit Naitions Stateestics Diveesion's figur for the Unitit States is 9,833,517 sq km an Cheenae is 9,596,961 sq km. Thir closely match the CIA World Factbook figurs an similarly include coastal an territorial watters for the Unitit States, but exclude coastal an territorial waters for Cheenae.


    Further explanation o disputit rankin: The dispute for warld's third-lairgest kintra arose frae the inclusion o Coastal an Territorial watters for the Unitit States. This discrepancy wis deduced frae comparin the CIA World Factbook an its previous iterations[7] against the information for Unitit States on Encyclopaedia Britannica, pairteecularly its fitnote section.[4] In sum, accordin tae aulder versions o the CIA World Factbook (from 1982 to 1996), the US wis leetit as the warld's fowert-lairgest kintra (efter Roushie, Canadae, an Cheenae) wi a tot aurie o 9,372,610 sq km. Houever, in the 1997 edeetion, the US addit Coastal waters tae its tot aurie (increasin it tae 9,629,091 sq km). An then again in 2007, US addit Territorial watter tae its tot aurie (increasin it tae 9,833,517 sq km). During this time, Cheenae's tot aurie remained unchynged. In ither wirds, na Coastal or Territorial watter space wis addit tae Cheenae's tot aurie figur. The Unitit States haes a Coastal watter aurie o 109,362 sq km, an a Territorial watter aurie o 195,213 sq km, for a tot o 304,575 sq km o addeetional watter space. This is lairger than entire kintras lik Italy, New Zealand, an the Unitit Kinrick. Addin this figur tae the US will boost it ower Cheenae in rankin syne Cheenae's Coastal an Territorial watter figurs are currently unkent (na offeecial publication) an thus canna be addit intae Cheenae's tot aurie figur.

  4.
