There are many countries in the world and it would take hours trying to list of them. Actually, there are about 197 countries, but this is still debated. I’m going to do it anyway!
Africa is one of the least developed countries, except for Antarctica (Duh!). South Africa is one of the most populated countries, with three capitals! Most African countries gained independence in the 20th and 21st centuries. South Sudan got its independence from Sudan in 2011! The highest point in Africa is Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cape Verde, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Cote d’Iviore, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Nambia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Asia is home to the top 2 most populated countries: China and India! Asia also has the Himalayan mountain range, contain Mt. Everest and K2, the 2 highest peaks in the world! Asia also contains different terrains such as Mountains, Desert, Swampy, and many more.
Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Cyprus, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgystan, Laos, Lebanon, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Syria, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Timor-Leste, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and Yemen.
Europe contains the smallest country (Vatican City) and the largest country (Russia). The European Union is an assembly of most European nations. All of these nations switched their currency to the Euro (except for the U.K.). The U.K. has a landmark called Stonehenge, and it attracts millions of tourists every year!
Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxenbourg, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and Vatican City.
All of these countries “come” under North America, but I chose to separate them into sub-categories. The longest ocean border belongs to Canada. In Yucatan, Mexico, there is a crater, most likely formed the “mega” meteor that wiped out most of the dinosaurs.
Canada, Mexico, and United States of America.
Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.
Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Greneda, Haiti, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.
Some people think this should be called Australia and the Pacific Islands. Others are fine with Oceania. Australia and New Zealand are British Commonwealth territories, so use the British “X” on their flags. Contrary to the belief, Aboriginal boomerangs were never meant to come back!
Australia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, New Zealand, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.
The Spanish and the Portuguese colonized South America, and that’s why those are the 2 most spoken languages in South America. The 2016 Olympics are being held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the official language is Portuguese. In Chile, near the Andes Mountains, is one of the driest places in the world!
Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
Comment if you think I got something wrong.
Also, comment on these questions:
Is Turkey in Europe or Asia?
Is Taiwan a country?
What about Macau?
