Which countries use min per mile and which min per km?

The vast majority of countries use the metric system, which includes units such as meters, liters, and grams. However, there are a few notable exceptions that use different systems of measurement.

The United States is one of the only industrialized nations that still uses the imperial system, which includes units such as feet, inches, and pounds. This system is also used in Myanmar, Liberia, and a handful of other countries.

The imperial system was once common throughout the British Empire, but most countries have since switched to the metric system. In contrast, Myanmar and Liberia both have strong ties to the UK and were never part of the metric system. As a result, they continue to use the imperial system to this day.
