An infographic about Australia's history, economy, and population. The color scheme was taken from the Australian national flag and altered for a more legible and varied palette.
The graphic covers Australia's population and size, in comparison to several surrounding countries. In order to give a rough estimate of the actual size of Australia, there is an overlay of one of the more closely sized land masses, the 48 contiguous United States.
The population growth over the last hundred years is steady, with most Australians in adulthood and living in urban locations.
Bangladesh, the most densely populated country in the world, outranks Australia by over 300 times as many people per square kilometer.
