Top Ten Least Known CountriesAsianBlood
The Top Ten
Nauru is the third smallest country in the world, fattest country in the world, and has no official capital - aerochamber
I heard this name for the first time thanks to this list. - Metal_Treasure
Nauru only had 160 tourists in either 2014 or 2013. And it has no actual capital. - AsianBlood
Should be known for being the fattest country in the world
What's "Na-Ru"?V 7 Comments
Yes, so few people know the Central Asian countries. Some of the more nerdy ones like me ;) will know Kazakhstan, the economically best country there, and Turkmenistan because of their really insane rulers. Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan are forgotten a lot. Uzbekistan is known a lot because of world history though (Samarkand is located in it), and so that leaves us with these two. Some people on the internet even made a joke which referred to Kyrgyzstan as "WTFstan" to most people. - AsianBlood
Half the countries on this list I don't know :( - Matt92647
This and Tajikistan are among the least known Asian countries - darthvadern
The population is small only 6 million people.its very mountainous and is called ''the Switzerland of asia'' and was one of the former ussr countries.majority of the people are muslims and its very poor and underdeveloped country. - Bearskater13
Actually, it's developing quite well alongside Kazakhstan. Many people do not have economic issues. - AsianBloodV 3 Comments
Bhutan has the coolest flag ever. Look at the drawing! Dragon with feet with the powerful orb! - InfernoTopTenners
I know Bhutan. It's mostly buddhism in there. - InfernoTopTenners
I've seen this flag before... - SamuiNeko
Hands down one of the best flags and nature! - darthvadernV 3 Comments
This will be on the top of list because I am from Asia and never heard of for at least 22years
This list is very good - most of the countries are really obscure. - Metal_Treasure
I've never heard of anything like it.
A country seperated from Indonesia.
Wow... I actually know ALL of the countries on this list!
I know it's in Central Asia and was part of the Soviet Union but nothing more. - Metal_Treasure
I LOVE TO KNOW FLAG AND COUNTRY NAMES SO I KNEW TAJIKISTAN
Not as unknown as Kyrgyzistan due to Emomalii Rahmon but still very unknown - darthvadernV 2 Comments
It's actually sinking right now, and I have only seen two documentaries about it while we have a hundred "New York Might Flood in 100 Years" documentaries. - AsianBlood
Unknown but its already sinking and if kept sinking then no one has literally heard of this small country - Bearskater13
Somebody good at geography like me even though I'm 9,could mix this up with Vanuatu because of the simalar names.
Well.. It isn't a country..
I didn't know that this is a state!
It should be telling that until this comment, this is the only country in the top 25 without any remarks posted. Sao Tome and Principe is very clearly the least known country.
Should have voted this one not Timor Leste. Have heard of that, Never ever heard of this country. - CheesyNachos
I've heard the name of this country before but don't even know where it is. - Metal_Treasure
Most of these no name countries have dope, origional, or uniquely tacky flags that grab your attention... this country didn't even try - dvs_heir
Main reason that no one knows about South Sudan is because it became a country in 2012 and all the maps are still outdated. I guess that could work the other way around as well, but my television in America use said 'oh there is a new country in Africa' and nothing more - aerochamber
Come on, a civil war is going on here and almost no media reports on it... - AsianBlood
Last year I read an adventure fiction book - two Brits were looking for a buried treasure in Ethiopia and Sudan, and the civil war in South Sudan played an important role in this book.
So that's all I know - it's in northeastern Africa, close to Ethiopia. Underdeveloped and poor country. - Metal_Treasure
Its kinda famous other than less known but the reason people don't know this country is because 1.it's the newest country and un member as it gained independence from sudan in 2011. 2. some maps are outdated and still have south sudan in ''north'' sudan. 3. medias don't really report on the country but there's ongoing war there.It's a very poor,and underdeveloped country - Bearskater13V 2 Comments
Nobody in my school knew this country exists.
Not only a lot of people don’t know what this country is but a lot of people also get the name wrong. Although it’s spelled Kiribati it’s actually pronounced Kiribas because in the country they speak a language called gilbertese which is a language where the letter ‘’S’’ dosen’t exist but the word ‘’ti’’ is spelled as an ‘’S’’. And since the word Kiribati is a gilbertes word and has ‘’ti’’ at the end the name is pronounced Kiribas.
A lot of people are actually familiar with this country. - Swellow

Besides from Kazakhstan and maybe Uzbekistan, no one ever seems to know about the central Asian countries. I do,but I guess that's because I'm an Aspie :P
Brunei is undoubtedly the most unrecognised but yet richest country on Earth. People have never heard of this little Muslim nation because of it's geographic situation especially the recognition. I have visited Brunei, looking at the significance of the buildings which looks like a Utopia. Despite the enforcement of overkill Religious Values.
You insulted Zephyr the Steelix - SirSalvador

Alright, I know a lot of people have heard of the Dominican Republic, but have many of you guys ever heard of this country?
I know all the countries, capitals and flags in the world. But if I start forgetting about some, I will definitely forget about this one. So obscure.
Azerbaijan is shaped in a way that makes no sense, a name that less sense. The only thing that makes less sense is why Guinea-Bissau and Slovenia aren't on this list but China and India are.
I thought this was one of the more known African countries - darthvadern
Never heard of this country. I'm guessing - maybe it's named after James Cook, the British explorer. So it's probably located in the regions of Hawaii, Australia or New Zealand. - Metal_Treasure
Kosovo is Serbia, not an independent country - yatharthb
Probably one of the least known European countries. - MagmaFox

Grenada's flag is pretty cool.
Not the state, the country. It's not well known, and a fun fact; It got it's flag in 2004. - Swellow
To be honest, I heard nothing about this country, I just know it's name.
Must resist joke on how similar the flag is to Ireland. - Swellow
