You can fit 6 countries into Idaho

Here’s a rather surprising comparison, courtesy of Idaho’s size, if it were its own country, would make it the 83rd largest in the world. And it’s much bigger than many other countries; so much so, that the company, imagining Idaho as a storage unit, used mapping tools to see how other countries would fit inside it. The result: “You could fit Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Slovenia, Montenegro, and Luxembourg inside Idaho all at the same time,” the company reports. Other countries that singly would fit inside Idaho: Portugal, Ireland, Nepal, Bangladesh, North Korea and more/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.
