The U.S. ranks 3rd in surface area

According to the World Bank, the United States has a surface area of 9,632,030 square kilometers, or 7.19% of the world’s total surface area. That is enough to make the United States rank third in that category. Russia ranks first, with a surface area of 17,098,240 square kilometers, or 12.76% of the world total.

    This is only land surface area I assume? That should probably be clarified.

    That was posted nearly 4 years ago. I no longer recall what the World Bank specified about that.
