Top Ten Least Famous Countries

Who wants to go on holiday in St. Vincent and the Grenadines?

The Top Ten

1 Nauru Nauru Nauru, officially the Republic of Nauru and formerly known as Pleasant Island, is an island country in Micronesia in the Central Pacific.

They don't get much tourists (only a few hundred a year) because of its small population and isolation in the Pacific Ocean. Also, most of the island is un-usable for farming - ethanmeinster

Slightly known for being beautiful and having no-capital( is that right? ) But overall not many people know about it.

I know but I'm one of those crazy geeks that know all the countries most people won't know

Never heard of this island and I know a lot of countries! Is this a remote island?

3 Timor-Leste Timor-Leste

Everyone at my school thinks I made this country up. THEY EVEN THOUGHT NAURU WAS REAL OVER THIS. So I voted for Timor-Leste

Timor-Leste is the 2nd Catholic country in Asia besides the Philippines. It has a rich Portuguese history, but was devastated by Indonesia in the very early 2000s unfortunately - ethanmeinster
