This is an alphabetical list of the sovereign states of the world, including both de jure and de facto independent states.

[edit] Criteria for inclusion

This list derives its definition of a sovereign state from Article 1 of the Montevideo Convention from 1933. According to the Convention, a sovereign state should possess the following qualifications: (a) a permanent population, (b) a defined territory, (c) government, and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states. The list includes all states that satisfy these criteria and claim independence.

The notes include information on:

  • The reason why a non-de jure state is listed (also listed at the de jure state) <ref name=dejure>This list includes some de facto independent countries. More information can be found at the list of unrecognized countries.</ref>
  • The overseas dependencies <ref name=overseas>Some sovereign states have overseas dependencies, generally not part of the territory of the state. More information can be found at the List of dependent countries.</ref>
  • The federal structures if applicable <ref name=federal>Some sovereign states have more or less federal structures. More information can be found at a List of federations.</ref>
  • The autonomous areas inside the territory of the sovereign state <ref name=autonomous>Some sovereign states have one or more autonomous areas as part of the their territory; see List of autonomous areas by country.</ref>

The names are given in English and in the official language(s) of the state.

  • The names in English are the short official names (e.g. Afghanistan) followed by the (long) official name (e.g. The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan).
  • The names in the native languages are the short and official names in the official language(s). If needed, they have been transliterated into Romanized characters, but original scripts (such as Cyrillic or Chinese characters) are included. When possible, the romanization preferred by the country has been used.

The listing of any name in this article is not meant to imply an official position in any naming dispute. Entities considered to be micronations that are internationally not recognized are not included.

There are 201 entities on this list. The breakdown into categories is as follows:

Unlisted are the following states that fail to reach the criteria but which customary international law nonetheless might define as states under the Montevideo Convention:

Also not listed below are various disputed territories which cannot be justifiably assigned to the latter category, including Jubaland and Puntland (Somalia), Cabinda (Angola), Kosovo (Serbia), Kurdistan (Iraq), Kurdistan (Turkey) and numerous others. For a more inclusive list that includes dependent territories and areas of special sovereignty, see list of countries.
