If we tell you that there are some countries in the world which are smaller than any city or town in India, then maybe you will consider it a joke but it is not a joke but it is true. There are some countries in the world which are very small in terms of area and population. And the funny thing is that there are not only one half of this country but more than ten. The country is a landmass having a separate national entity. A few countries are so tiny that some markets and regions in Indian Metro cities are bigger than them. Sometimes, these small nations are also referred to as microstates. These small countries have their distinct culture, currency, a system of governance, etc. Here, we have listed the smallest countries in the world. These are beautiful countries and some are among the richest nations in the world. These modern city-states have populations as low as 1000 contained in just 0.20 square miles of area. Needless to say, these nations are a lot smaller than you might even think. Most of these are European countries or the minuscule islands in the South Pacific, the Caribbean, and the Indian Ocean. The most amazing part is – from financial status to religious influence, many of these tiny nations are very powerful.
