Could we maybe say 70% of the size of Earth? 60%, maybe?

I would rather not believe there are "very few" left. If they started
with a population of 250,000,000, a 99% loss would take them down to
2,500,000. A 99.99% loss would be down to 25,000. If the only Mobians
left are those we've seen in the cartoons and comics plus those in fan
stories, we may as well say Robotnik has succeeded.

Either 250 million is too high, or there must be other survivors
underground and on the Floating Island who we've not seen yet.

I like the overall line of reasoning, but what about residents of an
undestroyed village who go visit a destroyed village (not knowing what
had happened)? Surely word would get back to the King, and I don't think
he's foolish enough to not investigate such reports. Or do we assume
that inter-village travel is something they just didn't to very much of?

If Mobius went from 250,000,000 to <=1000 (that over -99.9995%), I think
I'd be about ready to cry for them.:-( And nothing could possibly be
adequate punishment for 'buttnik and Snively wiping out >249.9 million
innocent Mobians.

BTW, "BTW" means "by the way".
