The state of Florida is larger than a surprising number of countries

Florida is a weirdly shaped state (yeah, yeah, we know what it looks like), but it's bigger than people might realize. 

Florida encompasses 65,757 square miles, which would make it the 90th largest country in the world, according to Self Storage, and would make it just above the median size of a country.

You probably haven't ever wondered how many and which countries could fit inside of Florida, "if Florida were a storage unit" and separated from the United States, but Self Storage used the thetruesize.com to find out anyways.

Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg could all fit inside Florida at one time. Florida could store 4.7 Taiwans, and Austria would fit in Florida twice, at separate times, they say.
