As I mentioned before, I’ll be working on Geography Quick Facts and the Ariadne Encyclopedia’s country profiles at the same time. So, here’s a comparison between Earth and Ariadne.
Number of countries (official): 193
Total land area: 148,326,000 square kilometres
Largest country: Russia (17,075,200 square kilometres)
Smallest country: Vatican City (0.44 square kilometres)
Number of continents: 7 (Asia, Europe, Africa, North America, South America, Australia/Oceania, Antarctica)
Number of oceans: 5 (Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic, Southern)
Number of countries (official): 249
Total land area: 150,930,246 square kilometres
Largest country: Name to be revealed (3,336,638 square kilometres)
Smallest country: Name to be revealed (630 square kilometres)
Number of continents: 4 (Ipeiros, Voreios, Tropikos, Notos)
Number of oceans: 4 (Tethys, Thetis, Proteus, Nereus)
As you can see, the land area is surprisingly similar. I didn’t plan it this way, it just turned out like that after measuring the land area of each country. There are also fewer continents and oceans on Ariadne, though its largest continent, Ipeiros, is huge. At 103,001,817 square kilometres, it’s larger than Asia’s 44.58 million square kilometres, and Eurasia’s 54.76 million square kilometres. It’s a supercontinent!
As I go through each country on each planet, you’ll get to discover many more stats, facts, and information that should be interesting. What are you interested in finding out?
