Liechtenstein has grown

| |

Liechtenstein, the sixth smallest country in the world, has gained a smidge more in geographic area thanks to revised calculations from surveyors.   Times Online reports that the Office of Economic Affairs has announced this increase in the size of Liechtenstein to 160.475 km.  The gain in land mass wasn’t enough to bump up the ranking of this small European country.
