The disparity in country sizes

I just found a cool chart that shows the extreme disparity in the land size of countries. This one is just for land area; population would show even greater differences. The eight biggest countries account for more than half of all land area on Earth. I strongly support the breaking up of these countries into smaller countries, as the disparity allows the enormously powerful countries, like China and the United States, an unfair share of power. Land area is not the best measure of this disparity, but it’s still a nice graph. Credit to Vartak.sourabh1985 at Wikipedia.
