I live on 30 acres in the country – this is what lies beyond the hedgerow in my back garden …
The corner store is 2 miles that way, or 5 the other way; the bank is 7 miles away. Thirty acres are roughly equivalent to 20% of a square mile … in Japan 167 people would live on 30 acres … in China it would be 73 people and in India 191 people would call the same 30 acres home. In Monaco, of all places, it would be 8,428. On my 30 acres it is just two people and a dog. No sidewalks and lamp posts, paved roads or corner mailboxes – this is my neighbourhood ….
The most densely populated place, according to my bit of research, is Macau which, I have to say, I had not heard of but is an administrative region of the People’s Republic of China, like Hong Kong. There 30 acres is home to 14,670 people. Conversely, 30 acres in Greenland is populated by .08 of one person … that’s not even an arm or a leg 😉
