  6. 6. UNITED STATES Some 75 percent of the more than 260 million people in the United States live in towns and cities. Yet farmers, accounting for less than 2 percent of the population, lead the world in production of soybeans and corn. NORTH AMERICA The 455 million people of North America produce more goods and consume more resources than those on any other continent. Canada and the United States share a 5,500- mile (8,850-kilometer) border, the longest and one of the friendliest anywhere.
  7. 7. 1/25/2000 SOUTH AMERICA The continent has a relatively small population of only 319 million. The population of Brazil almost equals that of all the other South American countries combined. Industry accounts for one-third of the continent's economic activity.

RUSSIA AND THE INDEPENDENT NATIONS OF THE FORMER SOVIET UNION A few years back the Soviet Union was the biggest country in the world, dominating the Eurasian landmass from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific Ocean. In 1991 the former communist colossus fragmented into Russia and 14 other countries, which are now coping with political and economic dislocation. Yet Russia remains the world's biggest nation, comprising more than 6,500,000 square miles (17,000,000 sq km).
