It's about 0.00000004 times as long as The Circumfrence of Earth
In other words, 23 nails is 0.0000000327997390 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 30,488,047 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 701,225,090 nails. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
