Bangladesh: Geography

Deltas are Flat 1: Bangladesh is one of the earth's most crowded nations: in 2011, an estimated 167 million people were living in an area of 144,000 square kilometers (55,598 square miles), slightly larger than New York state (US), a little smaller than two New Brunswicks (Canada), somewhat larger than Greece. Land is so valuable that people will do anything, not stopping short of murder, to get even a small plot.
