CHINA is the most populous country in the world with a population of 1.415 billion people, with India coming a close second at 1.354 billion people. While China is also a large and sprawling country with a land area of 9,596,960 sq km, 95% of its population are highly concentrated in only 60% of the land area.
The most prosperous provinces tend to be more populated, creating population density stress over limited living spaces. In fact, the most densely populated provinces (exceeding a density of more than 1000 persons per sq km) are not really "provinces" - they are special municipalities and administrative regions, namely Macau, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and Tianjin.
The total size of a military force includes its active forces, its reserve forces as well as its paramilitary forces. This is the total military force a country can marshal in an extended military conflict. However, during a military conflict, this number will vary. It may decrease due to casualties or increase due to conscription.
At the moment, the entire Earth has a whopping 63 million military personnel combined in total, or 0.84% of Earth's population. However, it is worth noting that with overwhelming advances in warfare technologies, the size of a military force is no longer a critical factor for victory.

The 2018 Index of Economic Freedom is an index developed by the Heritage Foundation. The Index covers 12 freedoms – from property rights to financial freedom – in 186 countries.
The Heritage Foundation defines "economic freedom" as the fundamental right of every human to control his or her own labor and property and believes that the ideals of economic freedom are strongly associated with healthier societies, cleaner environments, greater per capita wealth, human development, democracy, and poverty elimination.

These are the largest dams in the world. In this list, we rank the dams by the volume of water held in the reservoir. The largest dam, the Aswan Dam, in Egypt can hold up to 169 billion cubic meters of water or the equivalent of 67,600,000 Olympic-size swimming pools.. The dam releases about 55 cubic kilometres of water annually, some 46 cubic kilometres of which is diverted to irrigation of crops, enabling the production of average 1.8 crops per year.
The Guri Dam of Venezuela holds up to 135 billion cubic meters of water. Guri Dam generates about 47,000 GWh of electricity supply, close to a third of the total electric power supply in Venezuela at 114,000 GWh and more than 50% of Venezuela's annual consumption of 73,990 GWh.
Stratolaunch. The aircraft with the longest wingspan at 117m is the Stratolaunch. The Stratolaunch is a special plane (or a pair of planes) built to deliver payloads, such as satellites, into spatial orbits. It weights a hefty 226,796 kg without payload.
Hughes H-4 Hercules. At second, is a prototype strategic airlift flying boat built by the Hughes Aircraft Company - the Hughes H-4 Hercules (a.k.a Spruse Goose). Built in 1947 and the only of its kind built, with a cost of $2.5 million dollars, the Hughes H-4 Hercules has a wingspan of 98m.
Antonov An-225 Mriya. In third place, with a wingspan of 88m, is the heaviest plane on Earth - the Antonov An-225 Mriya of Ukraine. It was originally built for military transport purposes, but today, it is primarily deployed for commercial cargo transport.
There are at least 40 mountains on Earth with elevations between 7,500 metres and 8,000 metres in height. The vast majority of these mountains are located on the edge of the Indian and Eurasian continental plates.
While these behemoths do not boast the fame of the tallest mountain or an esteemed member of the "eight-thousanders", they are no less challenging and certainly no walkovers, with recorded failed attempts in the hundreds for this group of mountains.
The highest mountain in this group is Gyachung Kang (7,952m), a mountain in the Mahalangur Himal section of the Himalaya, and is the highest peak between Cho Oyu (8,201 m) and Mount Everest (8,848 m).
About 41 African countries and territories practise right-hand traffic (RHT) for their roads, compared to 14 African countries and territories which practise left-hand traffic (LHT).
Right-hand traffic (RHT) is the practice of keeping to the right side of the road, in bidirectional traffic. In RHT, vehicles keep right and the cars are left-hand drive (LHD) with the steering wheel on the left-hand side of the car.

Altogether, there are 14 highest mountains that are more than 8,000 metres high above sea level - collectively, they are referred to as the "eight-thousanders". All of the eight-thousanders are located in Asia's Himalayas and the Karakoram mountain ranges.
Mount Everest ( or otherwise known as Chomolungma or "Goddess Mother of Mountains" to Tibetian natives ) remains the highest of the highest mountains at 8,848m. The first person to climb all 14 eight-thousanders was the Italian Reinhold Messner, who completed this feat on 16 October 1986.
