But, there are dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes erroneously called "countries" but don't count at all - they're governed by other countries. That makes 258

    A very frequent geographical question is "How many countries are in the world?" Different numbers pop up when one inquires or reads about the number of countries in the world. Each source you use often yields a different answer. Ultimately, the best answer is that there are 196 countries in the world.

    One measure of 'richness' or 'wealth' is the GNP per Capita of a country. By this measure, the countries with the most wealth per person are:
    1. Luxembourg
    2. Norway
    3. Switzerland
    4. Denmark
    5. Iceland
