    Default Our planet is quite a bit bigger than you might think

    There are 7 billion people in the world, a world which is that big that you could fit everyone in the state of Texas with more than 92.9 square metres per person.

    Texas is approximately 678,052 sq km, while New Zealand is approximately 268,838 sq km, making New Zealand 39.65% the size of Texas. Meanwhile, the population of Texas is ~25.1 million people (20.2 million fewer people live in New Zealand).

    I just thought that you may be interested.

    Is that land mass only or does it count the ocean?
    And livable =land or deserts and such as well?

    And we need to remember we depend on other species, humans only would die out pretty quick. Need room for them too, animals, sea life AND insects and plants.
