TIL: The U.S. is the world's 3rd most populous nation.

Most populous country, China 1.4 billion — 2nd most populous country, India 1.3 billion —3rd most populous country, USA 324 million — 4th most populous country, Indonesia 258 million — 5th most populous country, Brazil 206 million 

Should I have known that? I mean, it makes sense, but I never really thought about it, I guess, since China and India dwarf all others by so much. Back in the day, the USSR had more people than the USA, so I guess that’s been in my head. Russia’s only got 144 million.
