We know China is enormous, but these graphics help put a bit more context on the size.

If we consider the Chinese megaregions, this context becomes even more sharply drawn.

291DC108-F5B0-4EF2-A607-03980537F40BAustralia with its $US1.2 trillion economy is only 5% bigger than the Beijing megaregion. The teaming sub-continent of India? Only 4% bigger than the Yangtze megaregion.

And, most of these new Chinese city-counties are growing at faster rates than the old world countries they are compared to.
