The map above shows how big Luxembourg is compared to Singapore, Andorra, Malta, Liechtenstein, San Marino, Monaco, and the Vatican.
Luxembourg is 2,586.4 km2 (998.6 sq mi) with a population of 576,249, making it one of the world’s smallest states; 168th by size or 164th by population.
However, it’s still bigger than Singapore, Andorra, Malta, Liechtenstein, San Marino, Monaco, and the Vatican combined!
Here’s how big they are respectively:
- Singapore: 719.1 km2 (277.6 sq mi); population: 5,607,300
- Andorra: 467.63 km2 (180.55 sq mi); population: 85,470

- Monaco: 2.02 km2 (0.78 sq mi); population 38,400
- Vatican: 0.44 km2 (0.17 sq mi); population 1,000
However, the combined populations of these 7 microstates is 6,248,221, nearly 11 times more people than Luxembourg. So Luxembourg is not only not a microstate, but it’s practically empty!
