Brisbane: 2,360,241
Perth: 2,022,044
Adelaide: 1,324,279
yes , four out of those five are great cities to live , adelaide falls down for its dullness

australia does indeed have a great selection of cities for a population of 20 million

i would pick germany too , no city dominates like happens in france or the uk

There are others but I just pulled these out of thin air.

I agree with this actually. I usually compare US states to countries, especially European ones because I think that's a more fair comparison in most cases.

Any country that does not have a huge dominating capital city, so France and the UK are out of the equation. The cities in Spain, Italy, Germany and the US come to mind.

I can't believe I forgot Philly. I would definitely place Atlanta over Portland. Portland really isn't a very impressive city.

germany has the most even balance of cities

believe it or not dublin dominates the irish economy to a far greater degree than london does the uk economy , now maybe this is not at all unusual in small countries but does vienna , auckland , copenhagen or helsinki completely dominate their respective countries ? , im talking 30% of the economy type deal
