Which country are you....

I was looking up some stats on the net and came across an entertaining ranking of Australian states in terms of population, geographic size and population density on Wikipedia that includes in each case, for comparison purposes, a country of similar size.

Canberra (ACT), it seems, is just like the Bahamas (well, population wise anyway), while Jervis Bay Territory (a popular vacation spot) has a similar population to the Vatican!

The West, it seems is Namibia-esq in terms of population (and similar to Kazakstan in terms of size!), while South Australia gets Qatar, Nigeria and Mongolia... 

The comparisons lend themselves to endless jokes, but perhaps ones that might offend migrant readers from the relevant countries (not to mention residents of the various states), so I will refrain...
