Most Famous Countries

The Top Ten
1 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

Let me just start off by saying I'm not American but even though I'm not, I just can't help but agree that the US is one of the most famous countries in the world! Most of the things I use that are a part of my every day life is of US origin and honestly I would like to go there someday. Many thanks to the American inventors who made all the stuff we humans often use each day!

Our culture is exported to the world. You are probably reading this using an American operating system, with an American CPU, with an American web browser, using the internet that American founded and still runs. You could be anywhere in the world (expect maybe Cuba, North Korea and Iran) and find American products quite easily, you couldn't say this about any other nation in the world. The same can be said with American fashion, music, films and television. They are popular throughout the world. When an American Presidential election happens, the whole world takes notice; this happens nowhere else in the world. How many people have drank Coke or Pepsi; or eaten at a McDonalds; or worn Nike shoes; or like an American cultural icon?

This doesn't even really get into the sheer size of the US economy or the military or our geopolitical reach or fact that we're still the world's only superpower.

There are many problems with the US but let's be honest; even then we're paid ...more

The United States is by far the most famous, important, powerful, diverse, and beautiful country in the world. There is no nation that even comes close. On a side note, I always find it funny when British people think they birthed America and have some sort of claim to the accomplishments of the USA. They suffer from delusions of grandeur. The USA became the United States of America not because of England but in spite of it. The USA became the super power of the world because of contributions from ethnic groups the world over, not because of any one in particular. Americans come in all colors and we owe nothing to Great Britain. If we did, I think bailing them out of two World Wars makes things even.

The United States is with out a doubt the most cultural influential country of the past century. They created the Motor, Nuclear Weapons, Flight, and people eat Americanized food all the time. They may say Americans don't have culture when almost every famous T.V. show and Movie is American and they are usually at the top of the Olympics rankings. The United States is also the worlds economic powerhouse and has been recognized as the worlds Global Superpower ever since post WW2. The United States is famous for both good things and bad things but I think people are confused. This is not necessary the best country but the most famous country.

2 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

I'm not French, but I know that France is famous for a LOAD of things. Don't get me started on the Eiffel Tower. I haven't been there yet, but it's like a hotspot for tourists who come to France. And I know that France is home to the city of love, which is Paris. Another famous place in Paris is the Arc de Triomphe and forgive me if I spelled it wrong, but I would literally die if I came to France especially if I came to Paris

Wonderful and famous country.
So various landscapes, there some villages which look to be villages of medieval tales.
France is like a dream, we had the chance to go to Tahiti, Moorea, Bora-Bora and Marquesas Islands. Besides the fact that these places are simply marvelous, splendid, is so amazing to know that it is part of France.
Here you have among the most beautiful coral reefs (UNESCO) and gorgeous beaches in the world.

France is so different, has a so rich culture and history and so peaceful areas to live in, it is the bucolic country.

And if you need you BBQ, no problems, here you can eat everything you want.
It is No 2 for McDonalds in the world after USA.

It's true that French are not the best in spoken English, but they are not the worst compare to some countries around.
And most of people speak only their own native language, so it's something understandable.

We plan to live there at least half of the time.

France is an amazing country! I usually visit France once or twice a year and in the past have visited 3 times a year. I also study French language in school and have learnt so much about the country. It's even inspired me to live there one day. France truly is a country that has it all. From mountain ranges such as the Alps, pristine beaches along the coast, to large metropolises. French cuisine is also one of my favourites and I always look forward to trying one of France's many dishes whenever I visit the country. France really is an amazing country and has to be seen. It won't disappoint.

Of course France is famously known for its gastronomy, but that is just the visible part of the iceberg. With more than 84 millions of tourists in 2015 is the most visited country in the world with USA and Spain. And it is also ranked number 6 in terms of GDP. Is in the top 5 or healthcare and the top 1 in Europe for its number of diverse cultures and origins.

Counting everything will take ages, but right now we can confirm it as in the top 5. Just see how many people here try to destroy the image of France, you never try to destroy a bad country only a good one like the famous ones here too.

3 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is ...read more.

Great Britain is the country which has created the modern world with the most inventions out of all the countries in the world. Britain has also invented the most sports out of all the countries in the world from soccer, tennis, golf, rugby, boxing just to name a few. The Magna carter is considered to be the first written constitution between the people and their ruler and has been the template for most other country's constitutions including the USA's. The British parliament is considered the mother of all parliaments and is the template for many other parliaments worldwide from Australia and New Zealand to Canada and the USA. England/Britain gave birth to the USA which is now the most powerful country in the world. The British royals are without doubt the most famous royal family in the world and the whole world is always talking about them, especially their royal weddings. The English language is the worlds most widely used and universal languages. Many British music bands are ...more

It makes me quite emotional, thinking how this one small island has managed to shape the entire world. And it can't be argued that we didn't shape it, we ruled over 1/3 of it at one point. The mother tongue of a small island race is taught in schools across the world. How on earth are India and the US above the United Kingdom? We gave birth to them, for god sake. Everything that's great about those countries were introduced or created because of the UK. How's everyone reading this now? On the internet. Who created the internet? Tim Berners Lee. What nationality was he? British. We invented more everyday things than any other country. We started the industrial revolution. Our music is listened to across the world, our literature is read across the worlds. London is the most visited city in the world. The reasons are endless.

Sorry to disappoint you all but UK did not modernize the world. I read some ridiculous comments like "Great Britain is the country which has created the modern world " or "Probably the country that has had most influence on the world throughout history" or "U.K. Was the first modern country which other countries modaled themselves on" I mean really? You guys really believe UK was the country that all other country modeled themselves after? Many of the modern inventions were a collabotrative effort between many people both from Europe, Russia and America in the early 1900s. For example electricity Benjamin Franklin American. Film and Photography is English and French. Telephone and radio is Scottish and Russian Nikolai Tesla and Alexander Graham Bell. In fact there are many inventions from Ireland, Scotland as well as England. UK claims ownership of them all despite the fact that Irish or Scottish never considered themselves English. I respect your pride but try to be realistic. In ...more

Number one. No comparison. The very fact that this tiny Island is punching way above it's weight says everything. Home to one of the natural wonders of the world and the true birthplace of Globalisation. Without the UK there is no USA, India or even democracy itself. The most powerful passport in the Universe, fact. You can travel anywhere with the most generous visa free travel and access. We don't even need to shout loudest, America can do that because they have something to prove. We have proven enough to last a lifetime.

4 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, ...read more.

Literally every item in my house has "Made in China" on it! Even my plates and bowls! Also, China is the most populous country in the world so it deserves to be on this list

China is the most popular country, it is a very beautiful place and the culture is great, it is also famous for it's Forbidden City, Great Wall and Shanghai.
You should also visit Guilin if you go to China, the food is not really great there but you're there for the scenery.
So why is the USA and UK at the top?
Because this website is THEIR WORLD, and not all Chinese understand English (for example I am not Chinese so I know English) so if this is an International Website that provides different languages, I think China could reach the top 3.

China is has the best tradition and culture since before. But China is still China that now a says they want to be the powerful even they will do evil matters to their neighbooringcountries like South Korea, Philippines, and Japan. They don't have the good heart they are the little demon of the earth. They don't preserve their good personality. They are so immature and the stupid country in the world. that's the fact.

China is one of the oldest country in this world, it can trace back to around 5000 years. Moreover, the population is impressive, almost everyone knows that. Importantly, China has various food such as hotpot, noodles, other wonderful snacks, etc. Every community such as different provinces has its special thing. If you want to know more, go and Google it for more information~

5 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.

In India you have snowfall region, desert region, forest region, plain region, mountain, hill, river, sea, beach, Luxury city, very poor village, ancient culture, modern culture, billionaires, beggars, almost all religions of the world etc., etc. In short India is a mini world. You need not go for a world tour. Just go for an India tour.

No other country is like India, it has more than thousand languages and all the religions in the world today are practiced here. In spite of many differences and disputes between us we always have "UNITY IN DIVERSITY".

You can't even imagine a traditional place like India especially southern part.

India is great in every sense. You have places that are highly technologically advanced and some places famous (villages) for their ancient history. It is a neutral country, no fights for illogical things (other than border disputes or anti-terrorist operations). A true democracy in every sense (also the largest). Scientifically advanced ...more

Its one of those rare countries which freed nations like Bngladesh and not even claimed a single peace of land .Its one of the countries that never attacked on any other country.

6 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.

Sushi, Technology, origami... This place is one of the most well-known islands to exist on planet Earth. Even though Japan's geography may not be perfect, they are still pushing through to become the next superpower; and the 1st to only have a size around the size of California

It's incredible that this tiny island nation- roughly the size of California- has such a prominent presence in the world. Japan is consistently up there in the "Most Popular Countries" lists, and it's easy to see why. It's a peaceful, gorgeous place with great people, amazing food, and a fascinating, beautiful culture. It's like a fusion between modern and traditional, and it's seriously awesome. Japan is fantastic.

It really is very beautiful and nice in Japan because of their rich culture and traditions that impress people around the world... People also like the sakura trees in Japan and be amazed in the Japanese names because every name contains a meaning that will amaze you more...

Japan... Everything about it is beautiful.
We can find things that we can not find in any other area of the world.
Especially hokkaido. Just love the beauty of that area, full of nature.
Not to mention Japan is also very popular because of akihabara which is an otaku site (for people who love animes)

Come on! Everyone knows Canada. It is the best country on earth. We have a huge percentage of the world's fresh and clean water. We are free and we have a decent priminister.

If only ALL the Mario characters (leave out Princess Peach, Luigi, Toad (kinda), Waluigi, Donkey Kong & Yoshi), Nintend's Kirby characters, the Legend of Zelda characters, F-Zero characters, Metroid characters, Pac-Man characters & Mega Man characters were in Canada very often, & especially British Columbia.P.S. I know what you mean by famous. You mean popular. Yeah, Canada has the nicest people & nicest schools, technically.

Canada is very wonderful! I just moved to Canada from Europe and all I can say is " I love Canada! I am proud to be canadian! " Canada is much better than Europe. First of all, Canadians are richer, Canada has so many beautiful nature and there is no war or disasters. We are safe in Canada. It is the third best country out of all other countries in the world.

With the most beautiful landscapes and diverse cultures, there's no place better. There always something new to see; life is a huge adventure! The people are warm and welcoming whether you're already a friend or one to be made, you'll be treated as such. I am so proud to be able to call this incredible place home. I hope you all get to visit

8 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Germany Is a good country with a not so good history. a lot of people say Germans were Evil in WW2, But It was just Nazis, but some Germans were good. But today Germany is Very good. They invented Prezels, Jets. Germany really helped make the world today.

It has changed the world in both good ways and bad. But its defiantly changed history more than once. Protestantism, the highway, the first anti smoking campaign, The first missile weapon the v2 rockets and Good space technology The world would be less interesting without Germany.

Germany has changed the world in good ways and bad ways. It was bad because they had the holocaust and it was once ruled by Hitler who is or was I think we could agree was pretty mean. I want to say change the world for good but it has a bunch of cool historical sites.

It is the best country in the world do not blame the Germans for the WW1 and WW2 that wasn't the Germans it was the Romanian idiots. German people are nice to other people and Germany itself has many ethnic groups and has the third most Jewish population in Europe. Vote Germany they found every thing in the world people use today like cars and everything

9 Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

This will always be the best country in the world Spain is known for its culture, art and architecture. The Spanish culture has introduced the world to Flamenco music and dance, Spanish guitars, bullfighting and bakalao. Spanish guitars emerged from the Andalusia region, where a sixth string was added to the Moorish lute. Thank god this is on the list more famous than Latin America and Mexico and the economy of Spain is the euro the strongest currency in Europe better than the peso. Very happy my dad is from Spain I will visit this country by the year 2018 Spaniards are very nice people very happy my dad is of Galician Spanish Descent very clean country an beautiful beaches and places better than Mexico and Venezuela.

Spain is very well known. They found the "New World." The phillipenes, America, South America, Central America, Cuba. They found a lot. Spainish is a well known Langunage.

Perfect combination between relax, party, good food and culture. Spain is the best country to live and to visit. Barcelona is simply beautiful and unique, Madrid is a cultural city with a lot of friendly people, Ibiza the best parties in the world, Seville very cultural and funny, Basque country and Galicia the best food!, there are many places to visit and never end

1000 times more beautiful than this dark county named Italy.
And at least in Spain we have real beautiful girls, women, men, cities, beaches and greater culture and food.
Just compare paella with so called risoto...

10 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

The first man in space, ingenious art, intelligent, educated people, the brilliant scientists. I know that Russia was born from the ashes in 2000 and Russia continue to develop. For 12 years, look what has become Russia, Russia is regaining the status of super power and will not stop. I admire Russia. I wish you good luck and prosperity to Russia. (from Germany with love)

I greatly admire Russia, or as I prefer to call it, the Motherland. When I think about Russia, I think of it's past as it is the prequel and sequel, to the Soviet Union. I believe that Russia is superior in terms of military, although this is most likely from it's equipment of WW2, but the modern Russian military is keeping up with America and Chinas military. Now, I know that Russia has many other qualities, but one thing is certain... Russia IS UNCONQUERABLE... why? Because, of it's harsh brutal winters, France and Germany tried to invade Russia, and what happened? They suffered in the vicious cold. You wanna invade Russia, good luck.

I just wanted to make that point, but Russia has many other qualities...

Russia is the largest country, people are very simple, polite and cooperative. Helped for freedom of many countries, and also fighting for establishing peace and stability of the world. They are not aggressive like many top ranking warmonger countries. Let's cooperate with Russia, world would be more peaceful.

I think Russia is a famous country because it has lovely views and lots of safe villages and a great president 'putin'. I think Moscow is the best place to visit in Russia, also in the summer the temperature can be higher than 30 degrees and in the winter you get a lot of snow you can play in. I also suport Poland, Latvia and america. I'm not being offencive to other coutrys, I still like them but this is what I think.

The Contenders
11 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. About 25 million people, around half of the country's population of 51 million, live in the Seoul Capital Area.

People, they were one of the poorest countries in the world and in just few years, they became more developed.
It is a small, yet very powerful country with great history.
The seasons in Korea are very beautiful.
In spring, many colors of flowers blossom.
In summer, there are numerous sea, river, mountains and caves to avoid heat.
In autume, red, yellow, brown and green fills the view under the blue sky.
In winter, there are many statues and festivals using snow and ice.
The musical, fashion, technological side of Korea also shines.
For instance, check your computer, phone, and other things that's in your house.
I almost guarentee that you would be able to find at least one from Korea.
Korea also has many different types of food, traditonal ones!
For example, there are "pan-fried sweet rice cake with flower petals" or "Hwajeon" in the spring where you dip a little bit of this good in to honey and eating it.
It is very beautiful and delicious!

It isn't just K-Pop that this nation has to offer. After their debut into the match for most popular nations, they changed from a random nation that nobody knows about to a wonderful nation, with technology and millitary advancements ranging to Japan's level.

South Korea is really a great country. Although it isn't all about Gangnam Style and Gentleman, it also has lots of countries. And people thinking that we make up a history about South Korea just to make it seem cool. It is not.

.. I think South Korea is the BEST! Because of their culture.. And today they have K-pop that has a good musics, k-dramas that has so many great actors and good plot of drama's too. South Korean people's are so good.. They are so beautiful and also a rich country.. :) South Korea Fighting!

12 Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt is a leading country and civilization. No one in the world has not know about, heard or been to Egypt. Egypt is the first country in Africa and Middle East historically reflected. Egypt also hosts science, Technology, Engineering and literature. From political point of view, Egypt is among effective countries over the world.

Egypt is a very nice place to be and relax despite the sand coming in your eyes and despite the buses are tiny but we all have a good time there.
Egypt the first civilization on earth was in that beautiful land.
I'm not Egyptian, but I believe that Egypt is one of the best countries ever and I literally love it.
I just believe of what I have seen Egypt is the best country in the world

Laugh out loud, Egypt is the most known country ever..
No body on earth doesn't know about Egypt
Egypt the first civilization on earth was in that beautiful land.
I'm not Egyptian, but I believe that Egypt is one of the best countries ever and I literally love it.

You must be living in a cave or under a rock if you didn't hear about the Pyramids of Giza or the ancient Egyptian civilisation or the mummies, it's the most famous civilisation on earth, hundreds of movies and T.V. shows have talked about it and still do.

13 Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Australia has a unique and diverse range of flora and fauna and some of the most spectacular places in the world. It has some of the best beaches and rainforest, deserts and mangroves. The people are generally kind and easygoing and multiculturalism is a big part of Australia, being the second most multicultural country in the world. It's also in the top 10 safest and best places to live and grow up and the top 10 places to visit. The cities are exciting and Australia is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and one of the best educated countries. Also I think we have the perf. Weather most of the time and as a matter of fact, we do have snow! One downside in case you hadn't noticed, some of have big egos and talk to much but that's ok! Because we love our country(... Generally).

The second most developed nation behind Norway. One of the richest countries on earth with the 12th highest gdp (with a population of only about 23 million! ). The second least densely populated country. Basically every type of climate; we have snowy alps little did you know. A highly educated society with long lives and beautiful cities. Of Australia's 5 major cities on the list of most developed the least developed Australian city is brisbane (the 12th most developed city on earth) whereas melbourne is the most developed city on earth. Perth 9th, Adelaide 6th, Sydney 7th. A culture that promotes equality over having a large house and lots of money. I wouldn't move elsewhere, the world doesn't seem as relaxed and free as home. There are more statistics that show this is the greatest land to live however this would get a bit overboard if I referenced them all. Come move to Australia, it's called the lucky country for a reason :).

Okay Australia is not the driest country. Australia is not like a bush there is other fun and fascinating things in Australia that you need to see. Australia is like an adventure full of fun and amazing places. Australia also has very unique animals with a range of multicultural. Australia is a fair and equal country. people from other countries when they first think of Australia they think of kangaroo and the bush! really its not like that there is amazing food and places in Australia. when I look at Australia there is more places and buildings then bush and dessert. in fact I have visited Australia and I have never seen dessert!

How can Australia not be higher the what it is? We should be at least 6th! Haven't you heard of Jessica Mouboy, Guy Sebastian, Kasey Chambers, 5SoS or Justice Crew? They are some of our greatest musicians! What about Nicole Kidman? She may have been born in Hawaii, but she grew up in Sydney, home of the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Bridge that is the biggest bridge in the southern hemisphere! We have the oldest known civilization still standing! The Aboriginals! They came here over 40,000 years ago! Then there's Ularu, and the Great Barrier Reef (biggest reef in the world), we are the biggest island with native species not seen anywhere else in the wild! Yes Platypuses, Kangaroos, Koalas and emus, it goes on and on.

What about our movies, like Australia and Tomorrow, When The War Began? We have amazing authors! As well as we are famous peoples most prized holiday resort, we've got our own sport, AFL and have bested GB in their own sports, we are better at cricket then ...more

14 England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. ...read more.

England is the country that originated the language English. English happens to be one of the most spoken languages in the world

England stinks horrible food, only in Italy we can make the best food.
English are dressed like zombies, only it Italy we know how to be dressed the best.
England has a brown and dirty sea and beaches, only in Italy you find the most beautiful sea and beaches of the world.
English speak only English, there are not enough clever to start to speak an eevoluated language, Italian is the best language in the world.
I can continue.
I see a comment with a small list with Italy No 8, Italy is number 1.

1. Italy
...
354. Spain
355. France
356. England
357. USA

End of this list.

The maker of this list did an injustice to England by not putting England in the top 5, let alone top 10. We are all speaking English and as earlier commentators have stated, we all use British inventions mostly in the modern world and England hasn't even been put in the top 10? No this list needs to be restructured with England at LEAST in the top 5.

England is great! It has amazing sites including Big Ben and London eye, The football/Soccer is amazing here! Games going on every day and the education is Super! Great place for tourists and if it wasn't for England, America wouldn't have been discovered for a couple hundred years. Also we wouldn't have T.V. or cuddly teddy bears if it wasn't for England! I <3 my country and I'm proud to be British!

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

This country Italy is really not the most famous and it will never be.
From outside we think it is beautiful because the media make kind of documentaries in that sens.
But actually when you visit it, you discover how much the it is old fashion, the inhabitants are extremely rude and arrogant and the landscape is not exceptional, nearly always the same. The cities are dark, chaotic, unclean, foul smelling. The Hotels are bad quality or extremely expensive. Italian cannot speak without to screaming. They look strange, like they spie you, they hate you, it is deeply unpleasant. And for the food, like the rest, not various and the restaurants like they are never renewed.
The same for the roads, architectures, old not well maintained.
And for the attractions except some ruins where you have to pay and wait a lot for nothing at the end. A lot of other countries offer better without all this mediatic bludgeoning.
Never return and we have lost time and money.

I go there every year and the landscapes are always amazing. Personally I have family living there. There is always new food to try and it's almost always good. It is the home of pizza, pasta and makes in my opinion the best ice cream you will ever find. The heat in the summer is just amazing. All the houses in old villages, towns or cities are always kept the same and traditional. In my opinion there is no other reason why I can't wait for the summer holidays every year.

Italy has the most Unesco world heritage sites, three thousand years of history and had an enormous impact on art, architecture, law, language (the romance languages), cuisine (one of the top three internationally), fashion, science, literature, and dramatic scenery from the amalfi coast, the beaches of Sardinia, the dolomites and the Italian lakes. it is the fifth most visited country in the world and has a major industrial economy from the Roman empire to the Renaissance few can compare.

Comment like "Number 1 is America and who founded America an Italian called Columbus"

1) Columbus did not founded America, he's just been in America, and not the first one: Indigenous peoples of the Americas and Vikings...

2) Columbus escaped from Italia, and start from Spain, because Italian did

not support him.

So do not be proud of something wrong and of someone you have rejected.

Full stop.

16 Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

Worldwide known for the philosophers, mathematicians, thinkers etc born in this country. Home to democracy and other values. Cornerstone to medicine. Cradle of civilization but also known and respected for its long and ancient history. Additionally it is situated in a very strategic point joining Europe, Asia and Africa commonly referred to as the "three continents' crossroads" - a reason for strong controversy among countries as USA, Russia and China over their internal influence and deriving/respective rights.

Greece is one of the FIRST nations and countries which appear in history. Findings show that our civilization exists for over 10.000 years.

Top philosophers were born in Greece. Modern Greece has done some mistakes, but never harmed anyone. Learning our History until now days, shows the heroic spirit of our people and our nation

The country that invented almost everything (democracy, theatre, maths, philosophy, architecture, arts, poetry, Olympic Games etc etc) long before others were even had a sense of being on this planet..

Greece is the best! It is famous for its food, tourism, history, people, weather and influence in the western world (and even in the Eastern world).

17 Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

Singapore is almost the safest country to live in. It has the second lowest crime rate in the world. Also, it has high standards of living, and has good alliance to other countries. Singapore may be small, but much efforts are made to beautify the country. Finally, Singapore is a multi racial country with lots of tourist. Therefore the tourists can easily get help, as I guess there are people that speaks different languages. Singapore feels like a mixed country of British, America, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, India, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan and many different countries.

Singapore is the best country! Multi-religious, Awesome Singlish! Singlish is made out of many languages combined! Singapore also have Universal Studios and Singapore Flyer. The fact that peace is really peaceful down here, although we are related to one of the most emotionless countries

Singapore is basically the role model for South East Asia. They are disciplined and very enlightened. This City State has boasted over millions of Tourists especially from their Asian neighbours.

My favourite thing about Singapore is that it has so many trees and flowers secondly is that the food is so nice I am very happy to live in this country it has loads of sightseeing places also.

I LOVE South Africa <3
People focus on the bad things about this economic, beautiful and culturaly rich country. Yes we were the most racist country during apartheid and yes we do have crime but the US, UK, and Mexico have more racism now, more crime now but they don't get discriminated much about it. Focus on what makes South Africa a good place, think about Nelson Mandela; if it wasn't for him the world would've been a worse place, there would've been more racism. South Africa deserves more popularity than biased countries like America and England.

Animals, Nelson Mandela, Table Mountain, so many flowers and nature, many cultures and languages being spoken. South Africa should be in the top 20 and not to be compared to any other African country as it's far the best in Africa. The Afrikaner culture in South Africa is so interesting and with the "boere oorlog" and many other cultural amazement no one knew of. Lovely place.

This country may not be rich..etc but many exciting things happen...S.A is not a country to brag about but there is life in S.A and I am not ashamed that I am a person from S.A...

We have the Table Mountain in Cape Town and we have Gold Reef City (which is a nice place to at)

Pinacle of African Democracy. Four best seasons of the year with lovely landscapes. Our diverse cultures are South Africa's greatest strength. Kruger National park has the Big 5 Animals - Must be on your Bucket List

19 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

I am half brazilian and have lived in Brazil 2 years long during the World Cup. Every time people find out about my origins, the first word that comes out of their mouth is Violence. But Brazil is much more than just violence!. You should not be afraid to visit this country, you will miss out a lot. It has beautiful beaches, the best food in the world ( Feijoada, Churrasco, Guarana), a lovely sounding language (portuguese), amazing atmosphere and way of living, great landscapes ( Iguacu falls, Amazon rainforest, Corcovado), very good music (Samba, Funk, Forro) and good partys (Carneval, anyone?!? )
It is undoubtely the most beautiful country in the whole world! ( and I am not saying this just because I am brazilian)

Brazil the most beautiful country and the most famous country of all time, they have the most naturally beautiful city in the world which is rio de janeiro famous of its sugarloaf mountain or by the corcovado statue and the copacabana beach and home to many species of birds. Brazil has many stunning places on earth including the iguazu falls and angel falls the widest falls and tallest falls of Brazil

35? Never. Brazil is more famous that Lebanon, scotland, Iceland, Norway, Bangladesh, Mexico, Finland, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, Ireland, Belgium, Greece, Spain, Malaysia, souht Korea, Canada, Egypt, Russia, Singapore, Australia, Pakistan, philippinis and India...

Brazil is a great country and there beaches are beautiful and they love there soccer. Brazil also have the Amazon Rainforest it is home to more animals in the world.

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

Steeped in history and with a strong cultural heritage of literature and music, Ireland truly is the "land of saints and scholars" and the home of "a hundred thousand welcomes". The scenery is breathtaking and the people warm and friendly and most hospitable. Also, the people are so cute and that accent.

Ireland is a real wonderful country.
All this region including Wales, Scotland and all Islands must be more discovered and appreciated.
The beauty is part here and not only in Mediterranean part as too many people think.
A French guy who'd like to thank Ireland and Irish people.

Ireland is a place of tranquility and of relaxation. It is treasured for its not only its landscape but it's history and cultues its festivals and holidays. I too think that irelsand should be one of the top five.

Ireland should be in the top five, known throughout the world and one day a year almost every country being Irish.

21 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. ...read more.

(Just up there to America, a lot of countries have iPods, tablets and stuff)It's beautiful. It also have tons of species of things, like birds and actually insects. It also has a nice community, with one of the lowest crime rates. It is also the best country at rugby (Or Australia, I don't know) and, to top it off, it is very safe :D (With a beautiful national anthem)

New Zealand is very nice and neutral and beautiful. It remains untouched and safe. Not my favorite country, US is, but New Zealand is still a awesome place to live.

New Zealand. Most amazing country, currently lived there my entire life and we welcome everyone. Come by.

Why is this nation forgotten in so many maps? New Zealand isn't just a second Australia, you know.

22 French Polynesia

French Polynesia with about 120 among the most beautiful Islands (Pacific Ocean).
Spread amidst the Pacific Ocean, halfway between Tokyo and Chile's Santiago, the French Polynesian archipelagos are found, 5 in total.
After visiting French Polynesia, and having seen its mixture of spectacular mountain peaks, wild and lush vegetation, and the clearest waters ever, any tripper will be able to understand why Tahiti is often called the "Isle of Love" or "Paradise on Earth".

This part of France is a real Paradise on earth, lots of splendid coral atolls and volcanic islands with among the most beautiful beaches of the whole world.

Bora Bora alone is the paradise with the largest atoll in the world and surely the most famous.

Better than france

23 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 is rich in culture food and in history. It has some of the most well know beaches and cities. It is one of the countries with the most amazing food and has one of the most beautiful flags worldwide. Although its government isn't that good and there has been a lot of violence for more of a decade, it is an amazing and beautiful countries.

It's a very well known country. I'm biased, of course, as I'm Mexican, but many people are voting for a country because they like it rather than pertaining to the topic. I don't know how people think Malaysia, Tunisia, etc. are more famous than Mexico and other countries.

From the origins of popcorn, chocolate, the american wild west culture and the popular cowboy, to the modern day morning after pill. Mexico is a blend of the world in one country, Delicious and famous food that integrates middle eastern, french, spanish, japanesse and prehispanic. cooking concepts

What is Mexico doing at 34?!? It should at least be in 10! And why are Mauritius and Seychelles higher than Mexico?!? It is famous for it's culture, people, and pretty much everything else. This list is crazy!

24 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. ...read more.

More infamous than famous. It may be known pretty well, but not for any better reasons than that Kim is trying to murder us and brag about being the "best Korea" even though their Southern neighbor is way better.

North Korea is once again famous... But only because Kim Jong Un is threatening to kill us. The rest of North Korea is pretty much unknown but all the stereotypes are that it's a place with so much bombs and nukes. If Kim Jong Un wasnt from North Korea, this place would not be well known

Not the best country, but I'd say it's pretty famous that if you asked someone on the street they'd probably know of it.

How come it's above UAE? North Korea is very corrupt and it is bad country.

25 Seychelles Seychelles, officially the Republic of Seychelles, is an archipelago and country in the Indian Ocean.

Seychelles is off the east coast of Africa, it is close to countries such as, Madagascar, Tanzania, Mauritius, Mozambique, South Africa etc.

Pretty cool flag ngl

No offense to the people of Seychelles, but this is honestly an irrelevant country. I never heard of it. I don't hate it either, its just. Wow, I didn't know this existed

What are those? Seychelles? Never heard of em.

This country even existed?
