Ghana is around the size of Gabon. Gabon has an area of around 267,667 square kilometers, while Ghana has an area of approximately 238,533 square kilometers, making Ghana 89.12 percent the size of Gabon. Gabon has a population of 2.2 million people (27.6 million more people live in Ghana).
Ghana and Gabon are both west African countries with capital cities of Accra and Libreville, respectively. They are both relatively small countries, with a total combined land area of about 516,000 square kilometers. However there are significant differences between them that make them not comparable as far as size is concerned. For example, Ghana is a much more urbanized country with 85.8 percent of its population living in cities, while only 7.3 percent of Gabonese people live in cities.
Furthermore, Ghana is a very poor country, with a GDP per capita of $1,500 compared to Gabon which has a much higher GDP per capita of $20,000.
In terms of population, Ghana has about 24 million people, while Gabon has about 1.9 million. Therefore Ghana is twice as big as Gabon.
Mali is around five times the size of Ghana. Ghana has a land area of roughly 238,533 square kilometers, whereas Mali has a land area of around 1,240,192 square kilometers, making Mali 420 percent bigger than Ghana. Meanwhile, Ghana has a population of 29.3 million people (9.8 million fewer people live in Mali).
When you compare the two countries on other measures of size, they come out almost equal. Ghana is slightly less populous than Mali, with 26.7 million people vs 31.4 million people. But this difference is not very significant; it's within the margin of error for most statistics books.
In terms of total area, Ghana is the smaller country, but its population density is much higher than that of Mali. There are about 5 people per square kilometer in Ghana, compared to only 1 person per square kilometer in Mali.
Ghana is also more urbanized than Mali. Currently, about 90 percent of Ghana's population lives in urban areas, while less than 20 percent of Mali's population lives in cities. However, when you include rural areas, then both countries are close to 50-50.
Ghana has higher GDP per capita than Mali, at $1,800 vs $1,100. But this is because Ghana has more people living in it than Mali; each person lives on average $1,800/year in Ghana, but only $1,100/year in Mali.
Ghana is around 1.6 times the size of Georgia. Georgia is around 149,976 square kilometers in size, while Ghana is approximately 238,533 square kilometers in size, making Ghana 59 percent larger than Georgia. Meanwhile, Georgia has a population of 9.7 million people (19.7 million more people live in Ghana). The United States contains about 595,890 square kilometers of land and has a population of about 316 million people.
Ghana was originally part of the British Empire, and now operates as its last remaining independent black nation. It is also one of only three countries in Africa that have a predominantly Christian population (the other two being Ethiopia and Egypt).
Ghana's capital city is Accra. It has an estimated population of 2.5 million people. In terms of density, it is the most densely populated country in Africa and the 18th most dense in the world.
Ghana is known for its rich culture, including its music, art, and dance. The official national music genre is called "Akpele", which means "get up and dance" in the Ewe language. Akpele is primarily based on acoustic instruments such as the guitar and drum.
The film industry in Ghana is growing rapidly, and many Ghanaians are interested in pursuing careers in this field. In 2014, Ghana had the third highest number of films produced in Africa after South Africa and Nigeria.
