More than half the world's population lives inside this circle

This map can be summed up quite simply: a ton of people live in Asia. That circle encompasses China, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Japan, Vietnam, the Philippines, Burma, Thailand, South Korea, Nepal, Malaysia, North Korea, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Laos, Mongolia, and Bhutan. Caitlin Dewey checked the math, and found that, yes, slightly more than 51% of the world’s population live in those countries. "I’m glad I’ve moved to these parts," wrote Reddit user Valeriepieris, who posted the map. "All you guys outside the circle are just playing a sidegame."
