/proc is a filesystem abstraction for your processes. This makes all
sorts of things
work without you requiring the privilege to read kernel memory (think
prstat/top and some debuggers).
So the size you are seeing is a representation of the process (address
space and attributes). It is
taking up no disk space so compression would not be a valid action to take.
See the man page on proc(4) for more information.
