The Answer:

And, the answer for the the question is :

Canada

Explanation:

[STC002316] Russia covers more area than any other country, but Canada comes in a not-so-close second…but second, nonetheless. Both Canada and Russia have vast tracts of frozen tundra in their respective arctic regions; however, the Canadian tundra covers 2.6 million square kilometers, whereas Russia’s tundra covers 5.5 million square kilometers and also includes Siberia. However, when compared to Russia’s 17.1 million square kilometers, Canada’s total area comes in a distant second at 9.984 million square kilometers. In point of fact, Russia’s landmass encompasses almost exactly twice as much territory as the next two largest countries combined (Canada and the U.S., at 9.826 million square kilometers). Even so, Canada, you really impress me!
