The winner is Russia, weighing in at 17,075,200 square kilometers. The U.S. is third place, behind Canada.
Woops! Looks like we both answered at the same time. Sorry for the redundancy.
Russia has the largest land territory by far at 16,377,742 square kilometers (6,562,100 sq. miles). China is second at 9,569,901 km^2, USA is third at 9,161,966 km^2. By total area, Russia still holds the top spot and US is still third, and Canada rises to 2nd place.
Russia. The second is Canada. However, the thing to remember here is that these two countries do not have that large of a population. According to the World Source Bank the estimated population of Russia is 141,800,000
The population of Canada is only 33,311,389
So compare this to a country that land-wise is much smaller like India. India’s population is 1,147,995,904
So just remember that land-mass doesn’t have that large of an effect on pollution or environmental degradation. it is more about population, poverty, and industry.
