Please see my amendments and corrections to your post above (in red and grey).
In answer to your question, yes, for me it sounds very odd to say "In comparison" and then not say what the reader is expected to compare them with. Of course no-one is going to compare your nation to a housefly or a snail, but there are plenty of other nations, real and fictional, to which you might be referring. Be more specific.
Please note that I edited your first post to replace one letter of the swear word (cuss) with an asterisk. We do not write swear words in full on this forum. We have readers of all ages and it's not appropriate to have such words in full.
