Image Description

When most people imagine Iraq, they probably don’t picture something that is very indicative of what it is actually like. Comparatively, we are much better off.

Despite this, Iraq has very big cities. Their capital, Baghdad, is a great example of this. To put it in perspective, Oshkosh has about a 26 square mile and a population of roughly 66,000 people. On the other hand, Baghdad has a much larger population at about 7.2 million and 78.8 square miles. Wisconsin itself only has a total population of 5.7 million. Baghdad is also probably more modern than what people usually picture. It has roads, bridges and even skyscrapers.

I don’t think people generally think of Iraq containing such sprawling cities with dense populations like Baghdad has.
