Countries of the World
According to the United Nations (UN), the world is made up of 193 countries. As such, it does not recognize Taiwan, the Vatican and Palestine as “observer states”. Thus, to be considered a country, it has to unite characteristics such as national sovereignty, well-defined borders and even a currency.
However, there are all nations in the world that present other numbers in relation to the number of countries that exist in the world. The International Olympic Committee establishes 206 countries, and FIFA 209. Check out the countries of each continent:
- Asia has 47 countries and 3 territories of national sovereignty
- America has 35 countries and 20 territories of national sovereignty.
- Africa has 54 countries and 4 territories of national sovereignty
- Europe has 43 countries and 10 territories of national sovereignty.
- Oceania has 14 countries and 11 territories of national sovereignty.
Note: Despite being considered a continent, Antarctica does not contain any countries.
