A Statistical Guide to the Countries of the World

A Statistical Guide to the Countries of the World

Planet Earth is a truly beautiful place to live and it is full of diverse landscapes, cultures, languages and races. The circumference of the planet is 40,007.86km and the surface area of the planet is 510,072,000km². Land occupies 29.2% of the planet and the rest is water. Today the land on our planet mainly appears in large blocks which we call Continents. There are many small masses of land that fall outside the title of a continent but most of those are uninhabited. There is a debate about what constitutes a continent and how many there are but most people agree there are seven.

These population figures and all figures in this article are accurate of 2012. Each continent is further broken down into territories, countries, and states. The number of countries and states is constantly changing as every few years new territories breaks away and aims for independence. This list I have compiled for this article might be very ‘outdated’ and unrecognisable in 100 years.

For each current country / territory I have outlined below six key statistics which I think really helps paint a picture about the country, its economy and its population.

International Statistics
