Population density comparisons

The Netherlands is one of the most densely populated countries in the world: only Bangladesh and South Korea are larger and more densely populated (hence have a larger population), and only Taiwan is smaller and has a larger population (hence a larger population density). There are 21 more countries (12 independent ones and 9 dependent territories) with a larger population density, but they all have a smaller population (hence a smaller area). If the water area is not counted then Taiwan is larger, and there are 16 more countries (9 independent ones and 7 dependent territories) with a larger population density.

Not counting dependent territories, 50 countries are smaller and less densely populated (hence have a smaller population), 73 countries are larger and have a smaller population (hence a smaller population density), and 55 countries with a smaller population density, but a larger population (hence a larger area).

(See also List of countries by population density, which includes dependent territories as separate entries, and List of countries by population, which shows to which countries they belong)

Considering also subdivisions of countries, also the PRC provinces Jiangsu, Shandong and Henan [1] (http://www.world-gazetteer.com/r/r_cn.htm) and the Indonesian provinces Jawa Barat, Jawa Tengah and Jawa Timur [2] (http://www.world-gazetteer.com/r/r_id.htm) are larger and more densely populated (hence have a larger population), and Shanghai Municipality is smaller and has a larger population (hence a larger population density).

Also several states of India fall into one of these two categories, including Bihar, Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal (all in the north) [3] (http://www.world-gazetteer.com/r/r_in.htm).
