On the contrary!  Georgia has four times as many counties, but is only 20%
bigger in area (50,000 mi^2 vs. 60,000).  So on average one must go about
1.8 times as far to reach the county seat (or other distinguished point) in
England than in Georgia.  The English have the greater mobility in this case.
