How Many Countries in the World?

There are many countries in the world. Because maps and country systems are political, there’s no one right answer. So it will depend on your views and where you are from.

This list of countries and capitals includes all 193 members of the United Nations, the two UN observers (Palestine and Vatican City) and Kosovo, making 196 countries and their respective capitals.

You must also bear in mind that the United Kingdom, consisting of a group of islands, is a unique country made up of four nations: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland: You can find out more in this article.

You can also download a PDF of the countries and their capitals below.
