>there are countries posting RIGHT now on /int/ that don't have at the very least 1 million km2 of land
There are literally no excuses for this, you had centuries full of opportunities to blob everywhere free of consequences until the 19th century came in and the no fun allowed age began
>NZ's slice of the Antarctic circle
>Aus's slice of the Antarctic circle

now whats the next step in your master plan?
the 8th biggest country but only the 41st most populated
that's good right?
In this website you can look true size of your country.
For example Finland is really small: http://thetruesize.com/#?borders=1~!MTY3MzAxOTc.NTEyNzcwMQ*NDM3MDM2(Mjk4NTg2NA~!CONTIGUOUS_US*MTI4Njc2MzQ.MjUxNDY4ODc(MTc1)MA~!IN*Mjk2NzkyNg.MjI5MTgwMw)MQ~!CN*MTE3NTU0ODM.NjUwMTUyOA(MjI1)Mg~!FI*ODE1NDA5NA.NDc1MDIxNQ)Mw
Kek, funny to look how really small Euro countries really are. Switzerland and Netherlands ultra kek.
>Seven sovereign states had made eight territorial claims to land in Antarctica south of the 60° S parallel before 1961.
>These claims have been recognized only between the countries making claims in the area.
>The United States and Russia assert their right to make claims in the future if they so choose.
There's a big chunk of unclaimed land over on your side of the globe to open a McDonalds. No point in cannibalising your ally's claims.
But it's literally true:
>The rounding of the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn in the 15th and 16th centuries proved that Terra Australis Incognita ("Unknown Southern Land"), if it existed, was a continent in its own right. In 1773 James Cook and his crew crossed the Antarctic Circle for the first time but although they discovered nearby islands, they did not catch sight of Antarctica itself. It is believed he was as close as 150 miles from the mainland.
>In 1820, several expeditions claimed to have been the first to have sighted the ice shelf or the continent. A Russian expedition was led by Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev, a British expedition was captained by Edward Bransfield and an American sealer Nathaniel Palmer participated. The first landing was probably just over a year later when American Captain John Davis, a sealer, set foot on the ice.
What, you though Brazilians were wandering around down there for millennia before the white man showed up and erased all their history?
We have the world's most freshwater but saying we have the most lakes is a bit silly because they're all tiny.
The Siberian Lake Baikal has more water than all of the Great Lakes combined
lol i was just fucking with you, i know they discovered antartica, i just don't like other countries influences in places were they shouldnt get their noses on, like malvinas for instance
but again, antartica is just a big piece of ice were nobody lives in, it doesnt matter who will destroy first
Wow russia you're right up there with Greenland which had lots of useless space. Feel golden as we're growing herds of cattle and wheat you're growing vast fields of ice. No, seriously. Have fun trying to sell tundra to the rest of the world.
Literally Spain tier. Not sure what your claim is here.
