slightly smaller than Oregon

I’ve just discovered the CIA World Factbook. It’s full of useful information, like the following, about Antarctica-

Land use:

arable land: 0%

permanent crops: 0%

other: 100% (ice 98%, barren rock 2%) (1998 est.)

Irrigated land:

0 sq km (1998 est.)


(And yes, as suggested in Spooks last night, the title is the comparative size of our great land.)
