Now to bring it down, all the continents of the world has their respective land area and population as they vary. Therefore, read below to see the list of the continents and their land area and population.
The continent contains several large landmasses. There are about seven regions that are commonly regarded as continents geopolitically. Asia has the largest area in terms of landmass, followed by Africa, then North America, followed by South America, then the newly formed Antarctica, followed by industrious Europe, and finally Australia with the least land area.
Although just like land area, population differs also. When you try to compare the population, Asia still maintains the first spot as the most populous continent in the world, Africa maintains the second spot also in terms of population, then followed by Europe, after which we have North America, South America is next in line, Australia is the next, and then the least populated is Antarctica with no actual data on its population figure.
Calculating by economy, Europe tops the chat as the most developed continent compared to other continents. This is as a result of the fact that the top countries are been found in the Europe. Next in line is Asia with about seven countries from this continent making up the G-20, namely; China, Japan, Australia, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, India, and Indonesia.
The next continent to fall in place is North America, thanks to the economical power of the US. We have USA, Mexico, and Canada as the super-powers driving this continent. South America is another continent to be stable economically prior to the continent’s position in the global world. Argentina and Brazil are the countries in this continent to be among the G-20 nations. After North-America, we now have Africa next in the list, with South Africa leading in terms of economic development in the continent and also among the G-20 nations.
