  1. Paul,

    Help me out..I’m a bit slow these days. Is this showing acreage? population? percentage of countries in the world? Interesting regardless.

  2. Acreage – you’ll notice how big the red is (traditionally it was actually pink, I think, which is hardly the manliest of colours for an empire on which the sun never set). Not something I take pride in, by the way, it’s just surprising how much influence such a small country had, whether for good or ill.
