Minnesota is the 12th largest state in America and boasts an impressive 86,943 square miles, and accounts for about 2.25% of the country's total land. We love to work, live, and play in this state, but sometimes it's nice to get away for a while. With Dream Getaways being given away soon, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some countries we could travel to that are roughly the same size as the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Turns out we have size-sisters all around the world, from Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America. Using data from NationMaster.com, I found a comparison of countries square milage. Take a look at who matches us in square miles, and share some fun facts with your friends.
