  3. 3. Eurasia The world map depicts Eurasia, a single landmass and largest continent on the planet, covering about 52 million km². The continent 'sits' on the Eurasian tectonic plate. Eurasia is subdivided by convention into Asia and Europe, separated from each other by the Caspian Sea, the Ural River, and the Urals. The Ural mountain range runs from the coast of the Arctic Ocean southwards through western Russia. land bridge between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean.

Africa as we know it, is actually the visible part of the African tectonic plate, the rest of the plate is under water of various oceans and seas around its landmass. The continent is subdivided by convention into North(ern) Africa, West(ern) Africa, East(ern) Africa, Central Africa, and Southern Africa. The continent is shared by 54 countries.
  5. 5. The Americas consisting of North and South America and the islands of the Caribbean. North and South America are geologically separate continental masses. Americas North America is Earth's third largest landmass with an area of 24.2 million km², separated geographically from mainland Asia by the 85 km wide Bering Strait, but plate tectonically parts of eastern Russia (eastern Siberia) belong to the North American plate.

Australia travels together with the island of New Guinea on the Australia tectonic plate.
  8. 8. , Antarctica Antarctica has a land area of 14 million km², making it the world's fifth-largest continent in area. Somewhere in the middle of this vast, cold and hostile continent is the South Pole, the southernmost point on the surface of the Earth and the hub, one of the two endpoints of Earth's rotation axis. Antarctica has its own tectonic plate, named the Antarctic plate
  9. 9.  Here are the world's largest economies as of 2012 using GDP (PPP) Gross Domestic Product at Purchasing Power Parity. This method however uses the U.S. dollar to measure each country's equivalent goods and services. Top 5 largest economies (2012) countries GDP 1. United States $15.29 trillion 2. China $11.4 trillion, 3. India $4.5 trillion, 4. Japan $4.49 trillion 5. Germany $3.13 trillion
