The True Size of Vatican City

Someone recently put together an interesting infographic bringing attention to the (perhaps) unexpected relative size of Africa in comparison to a group of countries.

I’ve always been interested in the extremes of scale, so I put together a similar graphic for the world’s smallest sovereign state, Vatican City, a country of less than a square kilometer in area.

I once circumnavigated the Vatican, on foot - that is, walked around it immediately outside its borders. I figured that was the only country feasible to do so to, as Liechtenstein, San Marino, and Andorra are too mountainous and Monaco has a water border. This one just required strolling along some streets of Rome, and took about 45 minutes.
