World Population Cartogram 2015

This cartogram plots the size of each nation as a factor of its population. It was created by redditor TeaDranks. Each tiny square represents half a million people. You can click the original at imgur to greatly enlarge the map.  

Asia takes up half the world and Canada is reduce to a line. Hawaii by itself gets more squares than Iceland, and Greenland is nowhere to be found (except on the list of squareless nations). The cities of Hong Kong and Singapore now are bigger than Mongolia and New Zealand. If you want to see a big city, check out Mexico City. -via Metafilter
