How Many Countries are in the World

How many countries are in the world today? Therefore, there are 195 nations in the world. This number includes the Holy See and the State of Palestine, two non-member observed nations, together with the 193 United Nations member states.

About the Countries in the World

The United States also formally acknowledges 195 other nations, although Kosovo is recognised rather than the State of Palestine. Only 97 of the 193 member states of the United Nations have recognised Kosovo. 

Due to its resistance to the Basque and Catalan independence movements within its own nation, Spain is one of the main opponents.

On the overall number of nations in the world, sources frequently disagree. According to other sources, there are 197 nations. 

Holy See and Palestine are included on their list of UN observers, although Taiwan and Kosovo are also seen as independent states with significant economic resources.
