And in some ways they are.  If that makes you feel bad, that's 
your problem. Did you feel better when there was no chapter at all 
in the United States?  Apparently, no nation-wide chapter was 
forming.  Were you going to set one up?

Having Wikimedia Deutschland (Germany) and France next to 
Wikimedia Sverige (Sweden) and Norge (Norway) make these countries 
look equal.  How do you feel about that?

The greater New York City urban area has a population (18 million) 
twice as big as Sweden's (9 million) and almost four times that of 
Norway (4.8 million).

The distance from New York City to Chicago, where the next 
sub-national chapter might be, is 1000 km, or roughly that from 
Paris to Warsaw.
