  • As the smallest state in the United States, Rhode Island has long served as an informal unit of area in statements such as this one: "An iceberg 1.5 times the size of Rhode Island has broken off from Antarctica." Rhode Island's land area is about 1,045 square miles or 2,706 square kilometers. Europeans might point out that Luxembourg (2,586 square kilometers) provides a comparable unit of measure.
