Which Is the Least Crowded Country on Earth?

Mongolia is the 18th largest nation on earth, with an area almost four times the size of California.

But the population of this vast nation was just 1.6 million in the 1980s, less than a quarter of the population of California’s largest metropolitan area!

There are only 2.6 persons on the average square mile of land in Mongolia. If the United States were as crowded as Mongolia, this country would have a population of less than 10 million!
