Let's take a mathematical approach, mmkay?
[Everything is taken from the English Wikipedia]

Size of Africa: 30,221,532 km^2
Let's see if this adds up.

'Murica: 9,629,091 km^2
中国: 9,596,961 km^2 -- Total: 19,226,052 km^2
Spain: 504,645 km^2 -- Total: 19,730,697 km^2
Portugal: 92,212 km^2 -- Total: 19,822,909 km^2
Belgium: 30,528 km^2 -- Total: 19,853,437 km^2
Netherlands: 41,543 km^2 -- Total: 19,894,980 km^2
Germany: 357,168 km^2 -- Total: 20,252,148 km^2
France: 640,679 km^2 -- Total: 20,892,827 km^2
Switzerland: 41,285 km^2 -- Total: 20,934,112 km^2
Italy: 301,338 km^2 -- Total: 21,235,450 km^2
India: 3,287,590 km^2 -- Total: 24,523,040 km^2
UK: 243,610 km^2 -- Total: 24,766,650 km^2
Hentailand: 377,944 km^2 -- Total: 25,144594 km^2
"Eastern Europe" is pretty undefined, but India seems to be the same size (if not bigger) as the area marked "Eastern Europe", so we can use that for a reference. Eastern Europe [as in this picture] is a lot smaller than India, but taking India as a frame of reference, will debunk the possibility of underestimating the size of Eastern Europe and thereby getting a forced result.
Eastern Europe [India]: 3,287,590 km^2

Overall total: 28,432,184 km^2.
Again, Africa: 30,221,532 km^2
There you go.

What!? Youre telling me that a continent is big enough to hold various countries within its area? Wow golly! I never would've guessed!

This is retarded. They do realize Africa is a continent and the US is part of the North American continent and China is part of Asia which dwarfs Africa.

I really think some people here don't get the point of this content, of course no **** a continent is larger than a bunch of countries, but that's not the point, it's about the actual relative size of th continent compared to how it's projected on our maps. Truth is the size of third world continents such as Africa are heavily underplayed by most maps we own, heavily distorting our view of the world. Here's a Peter's Projection map, which is more accurate.

To all commenting that africa is a continent, you are correct. However, you've completely missed the point. The point of this is to show how big africa actually is, compared to how "small" it looks on a world map due to being centered around equator.

May be big, but still not very valuable

Actually, those bare-tittied ***** literally cut their feet on diamonds while walking. Africa's pretty damn rich in resources. It's just that no one wants to deal with the locals. That's why many major countries have been practically giving the ******* guns for free for decades, in the hopes that they kill eachother faster.
