  • It is the second largest country in the world by area if you don't count Antarctica as a country
  • The only country bigger than it is Russia
  • Even though Canada is the second largest country by area, most of Canada is very cold and in some places it is almost unlivable
  • So even though Canada has a large area this does not make it very powerful.

The population of Canada

  • Canada has a population of about 35 million people which is less than the population of California which is around 38 million
  • Canada is second for land area it is ranked 37th for population
  • Because of its small population this makes it where it does not have the largest army to control their country and they also can't protect themselves to well.

  • Canada spends a lot on its army even though it doesn't have a large army to spend it on meaning that their army is well equipped

  • Most of the people speak English or French
  • Most people are catholic
  • The people in Canada get along well because the normally have the same religion and speak the same language making them powerful in the sense of teamwork

  • This makes it where you can only live in the south because the north is too cold to live in
  • Canada has many mountains but most of them are not that big
  • This makes it somewhat hard to travel but not that hard which makes it a little hard on Canada's armed forces to travel
  • Canada's geography does not make it over powered
