This is an alphabetical list of countries of the world, including both internationally recognized and generally unrecognized independent states, inhabited dependent territories, as well as areas of special sovereignty. It covers all areas under the jurisdiction of the listed countries, namely territory, territorial waters (including internal waters and contiguous zone), exclusive economic zone, continental shelf, and airspace. For a list of independent states only, see the list of sovereign states.

The names of countries in the list are given in English and include both an English version of the short official names (e.g. Afghanistan) and an English version of the (longer) official names (e.g. Islamic Republic of Afghanistan).<ref name="names">In some cases the government of a country adopts an official country name in English which is different from the name used conventionally in the Anglophone world. In that case the name preferred by the government is used in the list. This concerns Côte d'Ivoire/Ivory Coast, Macao/Macau, Myanmar/Burma, Pridnestrovie/Transnistria and Timor-Leste/East Timor.</ref> The listing of any name in this article is not meant to imply an official position in any naming dispute.
