# Countries Size Difference Calculatorby Birvan

*1st submission in like forever* 8D

Although I originally developed this as a tool for a larger project I intend to do, the question has been around my head for quite a while. What is the real size difference between the Hetalia characters?

Let me explain my train of thought with a simple example
Lets say we have 2 squares, one 2 units tall (A) and the other 4 units tall (B). We can say B is twice the size of A, but that's only when we compare their heights.
If we were to compare the areas instead, A has 4 units and B has 16. In other words B is actually 4 times larger than A. And if they were cubes instead of squares B would be 8 times larger than A.

Considering the size of the countries measures the area, if we were to know the difference between their heights we would need to calculate their square roots to find how tall they are before comparing them.
And since the Hetalia characters are humans, and not just surfaces, that means their area is actually their volume, so we would have to work with cube roots instead.

So instead of calculating everything by hand, here's an application that visually shows you the height difference automatically. I've kept the "linear, area and volume comparisons just for the kicks

[EDIT 23/11/13]: More countries added >D

There are many countries I didn't add. Drawing the flags is tiresome

I'm spending almost an hour here laughing and imagining what this would be like if it was real
Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It would be a really weird sight, that's for sure

what's populaiton density?
Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
The amount of people you have in a certain area of land (in this case 1 km2)
Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I see
holy crap Neddy is big

Yeah, but there are still some that beat him

Hehe
In Linear and Size, Canada is a little bit bigger then America.

Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Canada was always bigger than America in terms of land mass. So yeah, bragging points >D

Fun isn't it?

This is amazing, for the record. Not just for hetalia (although that's also fascinating and really funny as a thought - I'd love to see a world meeting where, say, all the countries have to run around trying to avoid getting stepped on by Russia, or maybe one with England/Britain/UK trying to raise his kids despite being smaller than most of them) but also just to get an idea as to the sizes.
Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Lol, England with his kids would be absolutely hilarious XDD

HAHAAHAH I liked so much to see America as only 75% of Russia in area
Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
In terms of size he's massive
Berna-EH Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah, and not that much in terms of population
Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, even Sealand beats him in population density XD
Berna-EH Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
10 inhabitants for 10m² heheehehe
