Top 10 Smallest Countries in the World
Here is the list of top 10 smallest countries in this world. With over 194 countries in the world, it's easy to think the word country equates to a massive land area with large numbers of people. Some nations are so small that cities within other nations are giants compared to them. Mostly found in Europe, the Caribbean, and the Pacific, there are many countries in the world with an area of less than 400 square kilometers. The top 10 smallest countries in the world cover a total area of 1491.4 km² which is smaller than the area of the city of Houston, Texas (1625.2 km²). A popular tourist destination in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is the smallest country in Asia in terms of area and population. There are over 1,192 coral islands in the Maldives, which are spread over 90,000 sq.km, making it one of the world's most dispersed countries. The country was once the colony of many empires, the Portuguese, the Dutch, and the British, but became an independent country in 1965. Today, the Maldives has a vibrant tourism economy due to its famous white sand beaches and crystal blue waters.
With their own governments and own culture, these small countries are some of the richest, most remote, and most intriguing places in the world. Let's take a look at the 10 smallest countries in the world today:

13 SMALLEST Countries in the WORLD
Visit the smallest countries on earth. These tiny nations include the smallest island country to countries smaller than some cities!
The small nation of Liechtenstein is the only country in the world to be entirely located in the Alps, and is still ruled by a prince! Covering just 62 square miles (160 square kilometers), Liechtenstein is situated between Austria and Switzerland, and is a German-speaking country, which is home to just 38,000 people. It is the richest country in the world based on the GDP per capita, and with only 1.5% of its population being unemployed, it boasts the lowest unemployment rate in the world. Liechtenstein has no airport, and tourists must travel through Switzerland’s airport to get there. It is well worth the trip though, as Liechtenstein is famous for its medieval castles, picturesque alpine landscapes, and charming villages.
5. San Marino
Often referred to as the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, this 24 square mile (62 square kilometer) mini country is surrounded entirely by Italy. San Marino is claimed to be the oldest remaining sovereign state in the world, as well as having one of the highest GDP’s per capita. This mountainous microstate is the third smallest country in Europe, and has a population of only 30,000 people. San Marino also has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the world. The country's capital, also called San Marino, is built on the slopes of Monte Titano, and is famous for its medieval walled old town featuring narrow cobblestone roads. Perched upon Monte Titano’s adjacent peaks sit the Three Towers, which are castle-like fortresses.
This squiggle of an island is located north east of Australia in the Pacific Ocean, and covers only 9 square miles (26 square kilometers). Formerly named the Ellice Islands, Tuvalu has roughly 10,000 inhabitants, 5 miles (8 kilometers) of roads, and just one hospital on the island. This island country was originally part of the British territory, but gained independence in 1978. Due to it being a tough place to reach, the tourism industry is minimal, with less than 2,000 people visiting in 2010, of which 65% were traveling to the island for business.
Well-known for being the smallest island country in the world, Nauru is located east of Australia, and covers a minute 8.5 square miles (21 square kilometers). Although Nauru was recognized in the 1980’s due to its thriving phosphate mining, but as the resources depleted, the island has dropped off of the tourism radar. Formerly known as Pleasant Island, the country now suffers from a 90% unemployment rate, with the remaining 10% being employed within the government. Nauru is also renowned for having the greatest number of obese and overweight people in the world – 97% of the men and 93% of the women fit into this category. Not only that, but Nauru holds the records for the highest level of type 2 diabetes, with over 40% of the 10,000 people living there having been diagnosed with this illness.
Situated on the French Riviera, Monaco is a miniscule 0.7 square miles (2.02 square kilometers), and boasts the biggest number of millionaires and billionaires per capita in the world! But that is not all – Monaco is the most densely populated country in the world, with over 36,000 residents! Monaco is known for gambling, luxury yachting, and of course, the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix. Although Monte Carlo casino, one of the most famous casinos in the world, is located in Monaco, residents are not allowed gamble or enter the casino. This tiny country shared its borders on three sides with France, and the fourth welcomes the Mediterranean Sea. The population is primarily French speaking, and is considered the playground of the rich and famous. Monaco is a constitutional principality ruled by Albert II, Prince of Monaco, who is a descendant of Grimaldi family, who are the oldest ruling house in Europe.
1. Vatican City
Can you believe that the smallest city covers only 0.2 square miles (0.44 square kilometers) with less than 1000 residents! It seems completely unbelievable, but the Vatican, which is also called the Holy See, is a tiny country that is located within Italy’s capital city, Rome. The Vatican houses St. Peter’s Basilica, which is the biggest church in the world. The church has some of the world’s most important artworks from the Renaissance era, including The Pieta and the Creation of Adam. The Vatican gains its money through voluntary donations from members of the Roman Catholic Church all around the world – there are more than 1 billion people who contribute! Additional income is also earned through sales of tourist items and admission fees from those who visit the Vatican.
Top 10 Largest Cities or Towns of Marshall Islands
Thanks for watching........
The Marshall Islands, officially the Republic of the Marshall Islands is an island country located in the northern Pacific Ocean. Geographically, the country is part of the larger island group of Micronesia, with the population of 68,480 people spread out over 24 low-lying coral atolls, comprising 1,156 individual islands and islets. The islands share maritime boundaries with the Federated States of Micronesia to the west, Wake Island to the north,[note 2] Kiribati to the south-east, and Nauru to the south. The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital.
Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipelago were first explored by Europeans in the 1520s, with Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar sighting an atoll in August 1526. Other expeditions by Spanish and English ships followed, with the islands' current name stemming from British explorer John Marshall (1788). Recognised as part of the Spanish East Indies in 1874, the islands were sold to the German Empire in 1884, and became part of German New Guinea in 1885. In World War I the Empire of Japan occupied the Marshall Islands, which the League of Nations joined with other former German territories in 1919, to form the South Pacific Mandate. In World War II, the islands were conquered by the United States in the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign. Along with other Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands were then consolidated into the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands governed by the US. Self-government was achieved in 1979, and full sovereignty in 1986, under a Compact of Free Association with the United States.
Politically, the Marshall Islands is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defense, funding grants, and providing access to social services. With few natural resources, the islands' wealth is based on a service economy, as well as some fishing and agriculture, with a large percentage of the islands' gross domestic product represented by aid from the United States. The country uses the United States dollar as its currency.
The majority of citizens of the Marshall Islands are of Marshallese descent, with small numbers of immigrants from the Philippines and other Pacific islands. The two official languages are Marshallese, a member of the Malayo-Polynesian languages, and English. Almost the entire population of the islands practises some religion, with three-quarters of the country either following the United Church of Christ -- Congregational in the Marshall Islands (UCCCMI) or the Assemblies of God.
Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar was the first European to see the islands in 1526, commanding the ship Santa Maria de la Victoria, the only surviving vessel of the Loaísa Expedition. On August 21, he sighted an island at 14°N that they named San Bartolome (probably Taongi).
On September 21, 1529, Álvaro de Saavedra Cerón commanded the Spanish ship Florida, on his second attempt to recross the Pacific from the Maluku Islands. He stood off a group of islands from which several natives came off and hurled stones at his ship. These islands, named by him Los Pintados, may have been Ujelang. On October 1, he found another group of islands where he went ashore for eight days, exchanged gifts with natives and took on water. These islands, Los Jardines, could be Eniwetok or Bikini Atoll.
The Spanish ship San Pedro and two other vessels in an expedition commanded by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi on January 9, 1530, discovered an island at 10°N where they went ashore and traded with natives and named it Los Barbudos (possibly Mejit). On January 10, they sighted another island that they named Placeres (perhaps Ailuk), ten leagues away, they sighted another island that they called Pajares (perhaps Jemo). On January 12, they sighted another island at 10°N which they called Corrales (possibly Wotho). On January 15, another low island was sighted at 10°N (perhaps Ujelang) where they made a good description of the people on Barbudos. After that, ships like San Jeronimo, Los Reyes, Todos los Santos also visited the islands in different years.

Niue Island Tourism Promotional
We visited this remote island in the South Pacific in 2012 on the (then) once weekly fligth from Auckland. Niue is not your typical South Pacific Island with snowy white sand and swaying palm trees! But what they lack in terms of beaches the reason why you should come here, is the people of the island! Incredible hospitable and we felt that the entire island met us at the airport on arrival. Immediately invited to chair in local traditions (as the weekly sundowner on the beach bar) to local festivities. And on top of the people iot is the incredible diving that are offered on Niue. This is a very special place in the South Pacific scheme of things! The video was given to us by the Niue Tourism Office.
