21 South Africa South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana more.

Are you kidding me. We have to be more famous than Nigeria come on! Nelson mandela anyone?

South Africa has Table Mountain and one of the most beautiful places in the world

Are kidding me we are number 1

Must South Africa always compare themselves with Nigeria? They must be kidding to really think so. Whatever you want to think of are all in Nigeria good or bad. It's economy has now more than double that of South Africa. It's people you and I know are more brainy and sophisticated and you know it. What makes me laugh is the idea South Africans have in their head thinking that they are # 1 because they see Nigerians in their country. Look at Nigerians and really think if they are their for your government job or have something in their mind

I am proud to be a South African and it deserves to be after Russia and Canada. From Canada

22 New Zealand New Zealand

New Zealand has the best of everything. The world's most beautiful country with exciting adventure tourism people the world over crave. We are not only the youngest nation in the world but also one of the most socially progressive. New Zealand is famous for the AllBlacks rugby team who are number 1 in the world. Hollywood film makers such as Peter Jackson who made the acclaimed LOTR trilogy which is the highest grossing film trilogy of all time with the third film winning a total 11 Oscars equaling that of Ben Hur and Titanic. New Zealand is the birthplace of commercial bungy jumping, jet boats, martin jet packs and the world's first high speed amphibian. We pretty much gave birth to adventure tourism. New Zealand was the first country to grant women the right to vote. The first person to climb Mt Everest was New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and the first person to split the atom was another Kiwi Earnest Rutherford - they both appear on the $5 and $100 NZ bank note respectively. ...more

27 Indonesia Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years, the country gained independence in 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages include Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian), Sundanese and Minangkabau. more.

I wonder why this country is not included in top ten most famous country, this country map is clearly printed on world map and globe, and only blind people who couldn't see that. But seriously, this country is absolutely awesome and beautiful, you don't need to go to bali or mount bromo, just visit every mountains and forest in Indonesia, they are all beautiful.

I went all around Indonesia once because it was recommended by my friend. There are so many cultires and all of them are amazing, and their history is fascinating too. My favorites are the beaches and the food. I ended up living in Indonesia.

I love Indonesia. My parents both come from Indonesia and the food is scrumptious.

This must be included to the top ten.

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

Ireland is beautiful I think it is the third.

It is a great country, because of its hospitality, landscape and the equality in the country.

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 the best better then any other county

35 Mexico Mexico

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.

Mexico is known in all the world for it food, landscapes, beaches and culture... :D

Mexico has the best language. You will have no one in usa who could talk Mexican better than a Mexican

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.

36 Botswana Botswana

Botswana? Totes wanna go there!

Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Mali, Russia and Germany are the friendliest countries but Canada, The Bahamas, Brazil and South Africa are the most beautiful countries. However there are countries in the world I have never been. I also think London and Glasgow and maybe Brazzaville have lots of attractions but Moscow, Cairo and maybe Aberdeen have the most beautiful architecture. From a Canadian with Scottish and Irish grandparents visit: Aberdeen for all round lovely, festive and vibrant atmosphere with plenty of historic sights, Glasgow, Cardiff or any republic of Ireland city for lovely people, London if you want to keep busy, South Africa, Brazil, Canada for spectacular scenery, republic of Ireland, yorkshire and any place in wales for beautiful countryside, Glasgow, Aberdeen,Moscow and Cairo for culture and architecture. I also love New Zealand. God bless Canada and it's beauty.
P.S London is not very friendly.
P.P.S Greenland is spectacular

37 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle east) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic The capital city is Riyadh.
