See what?Find me an EU country of 20 Mil and compare it to NY-state and 40 Mil and compare it to CA, then you will see.
And 20 million? There's really only one, and that's Romania. Though the Netherlands probably comes close enough with 17. Rather go with Netherlands for comparison then I guess.
The EU 40-million nation EU club is just Poland and Spain.
What do we do with the comparison?
