 supranational union possessing "country-like" characteristics. The entity is composed of 27 member states. Its population density has been estimated at 112 people per km2, and it would be ranked 93rd if it were included in the list (population: 494,070,000, area: 4,422,773 km2).

  • The most densely populated sovereign nation is Monaco, with a population density of 16,754 people/km2.
  • Antarctica is a continent of 14,400,000 km2 in area with territorial claims from multiple countries that are not included elsewhere in the above table. With a population of roughly 1000, this results in a population density of ~0.00007 people per km2 (far below Greenland's density of 0.026). A peak summer population of ~5000 results in a density of ~0.00035.

, had greater population pressure. Another study in 2010 by the British House of Commons library confirmed this, although their figures for the Netherlands differ from those used by the Luxembourg-based Eurostat. The results differ because Eurostat calculates population density using only land surface area, whereas the British House of Commons library includes the 18.41 percent of the surface area of the Netherlands which is water.
