Strictly speaking, this is true for only one European country: Monaco, which is really a town which also happens to be a country. It's less than one square mile in size and has about 43,450 persons per square mile. A more reasonable example of a densely populated European country would be the Netherlands, with about 1,000 persons per square mile. If all the earth's population were in Texas, the density would be 22,908 persons per square mile.
