Size Matters

Interestingly, there are a few situations where France is the top country such as "the country that receives the most tourists per year" or "the country that exports the most food per year", and it occurred to me, that it is intimitely related to the size. I mean, if your country is very small, it can't export very much because it doesn't produce very much, and if it is too large, everything will be sold domestically. An analogous reason is valid for the tourists. So, there must be some optimal size in order to maximize those figures, and I bet France is it. — Robert Strandh
