Actually,  wether a ribua' of te'hum is ever made that large is a matter of
controversy. Arguably,  once it gets fairly large, the rule of a city like
a keshet kicks in and we no longer have a major ribua', but rather a
polygon made up of many large squares.

There are views on both sides,  but the sanity check inherent in your
posted comment makes the more restrictive view more reasonable.
