Wouldn't it be cool if France had more land. Historically Great Britan led Europe, I don't think that would be the case if France was a wee bit larger.
France is more than twice the size of the British isles.

Agree.
Singapore is slightly larger than the city of Toronto (760 vs 630 sq km), where I live. I wonder how it feels to be in such a small country where 45 minutes of driving in any direction brings to the border. Even Hong Kong has 1100 sq km.

Yeah it basically is just a city. The good thing is S'pore is such a major air hub it's easy to escape by air. While Americans might take road trips on the weekend, Singaporeans fly to KL, Penang, Langkawi, Sarawak, Phuket, Krabi, Hat Yai, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Jakarta, Bali, Siem Reap, Palawan, Boracay for a weekend getaway.

Maybe, I mean they're not rich, firmly middle class, but they do enjoy travelling.

That would be AMAZING if that stuff were to still occur in this day and age.

I'm sure the Indonesians that live in close proximity would be very happy about Singaporean citizenship as well!
