Across the globe, multinational firms may be champing at the bit over an entire nation three times the size of Australia opening its doors to Western businesses after decades of military rule. But at least for some residents of this country, also known as Burma, a bigger issue may be what's going to happen on the next episode of "The Sign of Love."
[WSJ]

Size of Burma: 261,200 square miles. Size of Australia: 2,989,000 square miles.
Population of Burma: 48 million. Population of Australia: 23 million.
