I don't care how much land there is. I think people should be responsible in how many children they have and only have as many as they can actually afford to take care of and are willing to do a quality job as parents. Most humans live around urban centers for resources and work. It doesn't matter how much land is in between, the urban and suburban areas get crowded and the quality of life deteriorates. However, as people prosper they tend to self-limit their families to 2 children or less. So rather than governments setting population mandates we ought to have freedom which creates prosperity and thus a modest population growth.
