Two types of people are obsessed with the apartment of the future: science fiction fans and anyone who’s lived in a city.  Both those groups know that Korben Dallas’s apartment in The Fifth Element is somewhere between near-certain prediction and inspirational.

If you’re one of those two types of people (or, let’s be honest, both), BBC Future’s got the infographic for you: city by city, they depict how big your individual shoebox will be and how many of your fellow citizens will be stacked on top of you.  And for good measure, they’ve added in what your quality of life will be, based on things like health care, culture, infrastructure, and political stability.
