  • How many countries are there in the world?
    Unlike other lists in our population sections, in which countries and dependencies are grouped together, here we have separated the two types in order to provide a more rigorous count of the total countries in the world and in each region. See also: Largest countries in the world, largest cities in the world, and map of the world.

Regions or Continents?

We follow the U.N. Statistics Division of grouping countries into regions and subregions rather than into continents.
But if you are interested, you can learn more about continents and the 7 continents model.
