I think most of you already know that the Philippines is supposed to have a
land area of 300,000 km². This is what is stored in the United Nations:

However, the National Statistical Coordination Board says its 343,448.32
km²: http://www.nscb.gov.ph/view/geography.asp

Confusingly, the Philippine Information Agency used to say it its website
that the area is 299,764 km².
