    There are 193 member states in the United Nations.3 This total is often cited inaccurately as the actual number of countries in the world; it's inaccurate because there are two other members with limited status. Both the Vatican (officially known as the Holy See), which is an independent nation, and the Palestinian Authority, which is a quasi-gove...

As of March 2019, the State Department recognized 195 independent countries around the world.2 This list reflects the political agenda of the United States of Americaand its allies.

    The island of Taiwan, formally known as the Republic of China, meets the requirements for an independent country or state status. However, all but a handful of nations refuse to recognize Taiwan as an independent nation. The political reasons for this date back to the late 1940s, when the Republic of China was ousted from mainland China by Mao Tse ...

    Dozens of territories and colonies are sometimes erroneously called countries but don't count because they're governed by other countries. Places commonly confused as being countries include Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, and Western Sahara. The components of the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) are not f...

This covers everything you probably first think of as a country: Canada, Bolivia, Germany, Botswana, Malaysia, etc. Most of the big spots on the map can be filled in with countries that are members of the UN. The only...

    There are 206 members of the IOC as of 2019. The difference between the UN and the IOC is that the IOC includes several non-independent countries, most of which are usually considered a territory of a larger country—most of these fall under territories of the United States, territories of the UK, or French territories. Notable ones include such pla...

    The Travelers’ Century Club has taken it upon themselves to create a definitive list of “countries” for the purpose of travel. They not only include all of the above places, but also split off Alaska and Hawaii, Siberia from the rest of Russia, all the Emirates in the United Arab Emirates, the major island groups of Indonesia, the nations of the UK...

    Charles Veley was at one time the self-proclaimed “Most traveled person on Earth.” Actually, I have no reason to quibble with that title. He put in a helluva lot of effort into completing the TCC list, and he then set out for more.

    There are 1,092 World Heritage Sites in the world, and more are listed every year. Going to see the pyramids is different than just having set foot in Egypt. Seeing the Grand Canyon is different than having an overnight stay in Las Vegas. Not all countries are equal in this respect. Some countries with long histories have more sites than others. Th...
