Top Ten Most Interesting Countries That Begin With "I"

The most interesting countries that begin with the letter I. Last week I made the list about the G, H & J countries so we will move on to I now. With that being said, here's the list.

The Top Ten

1 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.

This country actually is quite green despite the name, and it is the only nordic country with volcanoes. Icelandish is also the language most similar to the language the vikings used. This is mainly due to the fact that the people of Iceland are descendants of the norwegian people during the viking ages. Flag is a but similar to Norway's but it's cool still. Very interesting! The fact that it's the only nordic country with volcanoes speak for itself and the fact that it's still one of the safest countries in the world as whole speaks of fascination - darthvadern

2 Italy Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. more.

Most people stereotype this country with pizza and pasta, and mario to an extent. But it's much more than that. This country has huge history! Rome is such a interesting and beautiful capital city and the flag is great too. Northern Italy has those gorgeous mountains of the Alps which I love, and the southern has many plains, and the capital Rome. Also, this country invented pizza and pasta, two excellent foods! - darthvadern

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore! When your anus is bleeding and your girlfriend is cheating, that's amore!

What a lovely country!

Why is Iraq which is very dangerous and has bad government higher than Italy.

3 Ireland Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

Western Europe is certainly interesting. Out of the three smaller nations (excluding Luxembourg and Monaco), Ireland, Netherlands and Belgium, Netherlands tops the list, but Ireland is a close second, it's just a very beautiful country with cool nature. Their history is massive and very interesting and they are famous for a lot of things. It's such a green country with beautiful nature and awesome history. - darthvadern

4 Iraq Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. more.

Yes, definitely. I wasn't sure if I should have Iraq or Iran at the top as both countries are among the most interesting countries of all time but I juts think I had to have Iraq first. Iraq is the country in which the two rivers Tigris and Eufrat are located, and do you know what ancient country was located between those two rivers? Mesopotamia, this is such an interesting country! In the ancient land of mesopotamia (technically Mesopotamia was located in Syria as well, but most of it was located in Iraq). The people who dominated mesopotamia were the sumerians in the south, the babylonians up bit more north, and in the northern parts (And this is the part located in Syria) the assyrians lived. All of them are very interesting, and I think the fact that Mesopotamia was located mostly here alone is a good reason to why it's so interesting - darthvadern

5 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian. more.

Yeah Iran was so close to beating Iraq. I juts think Iraq is a little bit more interesting. Iran is the location in which the persian empire started, and while I do not know much about the persian empire, I do think it's quite interesting. Yeah, but there's not only history. The persians themselves have a very interesting culture and they speak Farsi, an indo-european language and it's awesome. One of the best languages. So overall, very interesting culture and history, and I really want to study more about this country because of how interesting it is in my opinion - darthvadern

6 Indonesia Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years and Japan for 3 years and 6 months, the country gained independence in 1945, or exactly in 17th August 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages more.

Indonesia is the biggest archipelago in the entire world consisting of over thousands of islands all with people with different cultures and histories it's unreal. I mean it's huge. It's the fourth largest country in the world by land and each island is different. For example, the eastern-most island, New Guinea (shared with Papua New Guinea) has a very melanesien culture as opposed to say Borneo which has a more south-east asian feel, and so on. Every island is different and each people come from different ethnicities and it's just so interesting - darthvadern

7 Israel Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world but arab, african and east asian communities still can be found. more.

Israel is a country in the middle east and the only asian country to border an african country, and with the mainland itself. It's also the only country with judaism as its official religion in the world so far and Israel has quite a conflict with Palestine, who accuse Israel of stealing their lands and this conflict of theirs is quite interesting if you ask me at least. So while Israel is last on my list it's still interesting - darthvadern

The only country in the world with three languages on its road signs

It’s crazy how this one tiny country has so much protection from countries like the US - Randomator

8 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

India surely deserves a spot on the list! When it comes to political geography, India is the most complex of the complex! There are hundreds of exclaves in India which belong to Bangladesh, as well as tons of indian exclaves in Bangladesh. There's even more to talk about. The culture is very interesting and it has quite an interesting history. It's also the biggest hinduism country in the world, as hinduism is the main religion of the country. The capital city is New Delhi located in the northen part of the country, however the biggest city is Mumbai, located on the west coast. There's just so much to cover about this country, and I don't want to get to complex so we'll move on. - darthvadern

9 Ivory Coast Ivory Coast Ivory Coast or Côte d'Ivoire, officially named the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, is a country located in West Africa.

So underrated. Cote d'Ivoire, or in english known as Ivory Coast is the biggest producer of cocoa in the world. Countries that border it such as Ghana also produce much cocoa. This is quite an interesting country in my opinion. There are a lot of interesting tribes in this country such as the sanwi who once wanted to be an independent country and they literally declared Michael Jackson to be king! I've been looking at a lot of sites to see if it actually is true and it seems. Capital city is Yamoussoukro but biggest city and former capital was Abidjan, president is Alassane Outtara. There's tons of things about this country that catches my interests - darthvadern
