Canada is the world's second largest country by land mass, but despite having lots of space, there are probably more maple trees in Canada than there are people.\nIn fact, as of the last census in 2016, the population of Canada is actually just over 36 million. In case it's hard for you to visualize how few people that really is, there's a map trending online right now that illustrates just how ridiculously small our population is.\nVia Reddit\nThe map, posted on Reddit, distributes the population of the United States in units of "Canadas" or in other words, each coloured section on the map indicates where approximately 36 million people live, i.e. one Canada.\nBased on this map, you can fit 10 whole Canadas into the population of the United States, despite the fact that their landmass is actually way smaller. The state of California alone has a bigger population than us, with around 39 million people.\n@losmanduembedded via\nWhile this map is strictly (read ridiculously) about population distribution, some people have chosen to get a little creative with their interpretations of it. Rather than consider the population, some commenters have decided to think of the coloured areas as new Canadian provinces for when we talk over the world.\nThey have even gone as far as to give some provinces new names, for example, the area encompassing New York would be Angry Canada, the Seattle area would be Damp Canada, and the Florida area of the map would be Day-Glo Canada. Most hilariously, they have named Texas area New Calgary.\n@beautiful_manhattanembedded via\nCanada currently only has the 38th largest population in the world, and that number has been gradually slipping since 1955 when we were in 30th place. Experts predict that by 2045 we'll fall back in 47th place.
