Your ideal Population


For mine, it's a word wide population of less than 1 Billion:

100 million in the US.
100 million in China
80 million in Russia
30 million total in Indian subcontinent
20 million in Brazil
3-5 million in larger European states and 1 million n smaller ones
Less than 1 million in African states

The benefits:
*Plenty of resources for everyone
*Does not poison the environment as much
*Does destroy wildlife as much

China 1 Billion
Europe Union 1 Billion
Indian Subcontinent 1 Billion
Brazil 1 Billion
US 1 Billion
And no lone superpower will come but 5 great powers.

30 million for India? Just 30 million? Jeeeez

The population of the city I live in, is about 9 million. Delhi's population is about 21 million. Mumbai's population is about 20 million. Kolkatta's population is about 15 million. There you have it - 65 million in just the major cities of India. Its very very hard to imagine living in a India with a population of just 30 million

100 million for the US sounds comfy.
We haven't been that low since 1920.

I doubt I'd like to see 1 billion in the EU. Half that as it currently stands is pretty crowded in most places, except Scandinavia, but that's like saying we should settle try to 100 million people in the friggin' Arctic! Half the year there's not daylight, and the other half the sun doesn't set... That or gp colonise Russia properly...

Yuk, one million people on the Netherlands? How far would you have to travel to see a good looking woman? How would you possibly go out?!

I'd rather have a densely populated earth where we have synthetic food than something as boring as that.

And what makes you think the major European countries get 3-5 million people while the us gets a 100! I'm sure it has nothing to do with you being American yourself

It's fine the way it is, China and India need a smaller population but the rest of the world is fine. Also wth African states LESS than one million and European countries get 3-5 those are both terrible numbers for such big places

How about the proportions remain the same, but we just operate at about 60% world population.

Why should the USA only get their population reduced to about a third lols whilst everyone else looses big time!!

Also under this scenario Im guessing manufactured goods would be much more expensive?
