Top Ten Most Interesting Countries That Begin With "M"

The most interesting countries that begin with the letter m. Last week I made the list about the I and K countries and I just released the L countries so now it's the M countries. With that being said, here's the list.

The Top Ten

1 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

Mexico for the win. Mexico is not only the most interesting country on M, however, it might also be one of the most interesting countries in the world, in my opinion actually. Mexico has such an interesting culture and great foods like tacos, and the so interesting aztec people were from Mexico, who are in my opinion the most interesting people who ever lived on the planet tied with the inca. History, culture, languages, everything about Mexico is just so awesome to study about. Their flag has quite a cool meaning as well. - darthvadern

Take that, racism! - LightningStrike

I like this country. - B1ueNew

2 Moldova Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south.

Moldova, one of the smaller countries in Europe and unfortunately one of the most poor countries in Europe as well. It's squeezed in-between Ukraine and Romania, although their culture is way more similar to Romania, it doesn't have any coast but there's a lot going on in this small country. Especially in the eastern parts towards the border to Ukraine, which is one of the most dangerous places in Europe. You see, there's a region known as Transnistria that wants to be an independent country but it lacks recognizion and there's high tensions there as well and it's kinda interesting. As for other things, since Moldov has similar culture as Romania, you kinda can guess what I think about Moldova as Romania is one of the most interesting european countries in my opinion. So therefore I give Moldova tons of pros. - darthvadern

3 Malta Malta, officially known as the Republic of Malta, is a Southern European island country consisting of an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea.

If you exclude Luxembourg, this would be the biggest micro-state of Europe. I mean it takes up about a fifth of Luxembourg alone and is the southern most country in Europe, and interesting enough the only european country with a semetic language, maltese. It's cool. It's an archipelago in the mediterranean sea consisting of two islands and it's definitely a quite interesting country in my opinion. Their history is big, and it's hard to not have this country on this very particular list, in my opinion. - darthvadern

4 Morocco

The most berber arab country as well. They actually speak a different dialect of arabic in this country, a very hard one to understand, even native arab speakers have hard understanding this dialect. Morocco has very colourful history and culture, just like the name and flag of the country. Yeah and they made fez hats popular as well. Morocco just oozes with colours and interestment. - darthvadern


5 Myanmar Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a Southeast Asian nation of more than 100 ethnic groups, bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. Yangon (formerly Rangoon), the country's largest city, is home to bustling markets, numerous parks and lakes, and the towering, gilded Shwedagon Pagoda, which contains more.

I associate this country with gemstones, it's known as the gems paradise, especially rubies - about 90% of the world's best rubies come from Myanmar. If interested, check out the list Top 10 Famous Individual Gemstones Mined in Myanmar (Former Burma) - Metal_Treasure

The most interesting country in south-east asia in my opinion is Myanmar (formely known as Burma), something cool about their flag is that their flag is almost completely identical with Lithuania's flag, except the colours are brighter and there's a star in the middle. It's quite a nice reference as I am half-lithuanian. This is quite a fascinating country. It has very interesting culture and history overall and there's tons of cool places here. Capital city is Nay Pyi Daw, but it actually used to be Rangoon (the biggest city) until 2006 when they changed the capital city. There's the rohingya crisis which is quite interesting to study about as well. Very fascinating country. - darthvadern

6 Mali

Mali is not that much of a known country. However it's one of the most ancient countries in Africa. Most people think of Ethiopia or Egypt when we talk ancient african countries but people forget Mali. Mali is a one of the biggest landlocked countries in the world and it has the southern forest areas in the south, which is also where the capital and stuff lies, and there's the much bigger northern saharan part in which there have been separatist groups wanting to be independent. However the most interesting aspect is the Mali empire. Good lords is this interesting! It is said that the richest person in history lived in Mali as well. Mali is definitely a top three contender on my list. - darthvadern

7 Madagascar Madagascar, officially the Republic of Madagascar, and previously known as the Malagasy Republic, is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Southeast Africa.

Madagascar, the biggest island in Africa. Madagascar, not to be confused with the movie with the same name, Madagascar is an island country located in the indian ocean east of Africa, with the capital known as Antananarivo and the official language being french. Madagascar has among the most unique and cool animals in the world that can't be found anywhere else in the world, much like the animals of Australia, such as the fascinating lemurs and stuff. I mean do I need to go on? - darthvadern

8 Mauritania Mauritania, officially the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, is a country in the Maghreb region of western North Africa.

Basically the most "saharan" country in the sahara desert and a very interesting arab country overall. While it's unfortuanely one of the few countries in the world where slavery is still practised, it's still a very interesting country with interesting history and places such as the city of Nouadhibou where you can find the largest ship graveyard in the entire world and it certainly looks spooky. There's over three hundreds of ships found there. - darthvadern

9 Malawi Malawi, officially the Republic of Malawi, is a landlocked country in southeast Africa that was formerly known as Nyasaland.

Malawi, a place of inventors, innovators, and lots of fascinating and creative ethnic groups and tribes. Yeah, Malawi is aweome in terms of interestment. While it's one of the poorest countries in the world, located within Mozambique, Zambia and Tanzania, Malawi is a narrow country in eastern africa, mostly located at the malawi lake, which is one of the deepest and biggest lakes in Africa, and they take this lake surely seriously as it holds so many different types of fish which is seen as a very important product here, such as the chambo fish. Despite being one of the world's poorest countries, the people of Malawi have learned to innovate and create stuff using things in their surroundngs and it has caused Malawi to be a country filled with innovators, inventors and creative people and it's just so interesting in my opinion. - darthvadern

10 Mongolia Mongolia is a landlocked unitary sovereign state in East Asia. Its area is roughly equivalent with the historical territory of Outer Mongolia, and that term is sometimes used to refer to the current state.

When you think of east asia, you usually think of China, Japan and the Koreas, the most populated and known of the far eastern asian countries. However people forget little Mongolia, with only three million people. Fun fact when I first started to watch the youtube channel "Geography Now! ", this was the latest video he had uploaded. Anyway, Mongolia is a country squeezed in-between China and Russia (and almost has a border with Kazakstan, eh but close) and has the world's coldest capital in the world, which is Ulaanbaatar (or Ulan Bator if you prefer), however Mongolia is mostly known for the historical mongol empire which used to be the biggest country in the entire world and it's far bigger than what Russia ever was, and that is quite an interesting history in my opinion. - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Malaysia Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country occupying the Malaysian Peninsula and part of the island of Borneo. It's known for its beaches, rain forests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such more.
12 Marshall Islands The Marshall Islands, officially the Republic of the Marshall Islands, is an island country located near the equator in the Pacific Ocean, slightly west of the International Date Line.
13 Maldives Maldives, officially the Republic of Maldives, is an island country and archipelago in the Indian Ocean.
14 Monaco Monaco, officially the Principality of Monaco, is a sovereign city-state and microstate, located on the French Riviera in Western Europe.
15 Montenegro

The least known European country and a beautiful one. This country has so much mountains and this country has even been referred to as the sleepiest nation on the planet as well actually. Montenegro used to be part of Serbia but broke out in 2006 and is now a seperate country, and caused Serbia to lose its coastline with the adriatic sea. - darthvadern

16 Mauritius Mauritius, officially the Republic of Mauritius, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 kilometres off the southeast coast of the African continent.
