Australia. It's bigger than you think.

If you happened to watch the Eurovision Song Contest semi-final on Thursday, you would have seen an interval segment celebrating the love of Eurovision by many Australians (which I can personally attest to): Eurovision Song Contest: Down Under (Interval Act by Australia; Jessica Mauboy)

In the segment, Australia is dropped into Europe so the Australians can participate, knocking the U.K south. In reality however, if you dropped Australia into Europe you would knock out almost the whole continent. Because Australia is big.

You can try this for yourself using the Google Maps Mercator Puzzle, which scatters country outlines on a map and requires you to drag them back in place. In the process you can see how their size and shapes compare. The puzzle randomly chooses the countries to show, so you may have to reload and few times before Australia is included:

I was always reminded of the sheer size of Australia whenever I flew back to England via Asia. We would take off, drinks would be served, I'd watch a film, a meal would be served, I'd watch another film, and then check our progress. We were invariably still over Australia.
