The largest country in the world

The largest country in the world is the Russian Federation or as most called it: Russia. It has an area of 17.1 million square kilometres (6593 square miles). Russia is so massive it spans a total of 9 time zones. The European part alone makes up for 40% of Europe’s landmass. The whole of Northern Asia is basically Russia. It is a gigantic country although only the eighth populous one. The second largest country in the world is Canada, followed by the US and China.

All three have an area in between 9.5 to 10 million square kilometres. They are fairly similar in size. Next in this ranking of the largest countries in the world are Brazil with 8.5 square kilometres, Australia – its own continent but still only in sixth place – with 7.7 million square kilometres and India with 3.3 million square kilometres.

About CentOS:

The Community ENTerprise Operating System (CentOS) Linux is a community-supported enterprise distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by Red Hat. As such, CentOS Linux aims to be functionally compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The CentOS Project is the organization that builds CentOS. We mainly change packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork.

For information on CentOS please visit the CentOS website.
