Have you ever wondered about the smallest countries in the world by population and land area? Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about this topic. Some of the world’s most famous tourist destinations, often for rich people, are in fact these small countries such as the Maldives and Monaco. The Maldives is the smallest country in Asia, while Monaco is a popular destination for rich tourists on the French Riviere. Both countries belong to 50 smallest countries in the world. Vatican or Holy See is the smallest country in the world and one of the most visited ones, while Vatican City population counts only about 800 people. I think small countries are amazing, and I would like to visit almost all of them once.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the smallest countries in the world by population and land area.
The first one should be Liechtenstein. With just 160 square kilometers, Liechtenstein, officially the Principality of Liechtenstein is one of the smallest countries in the world and is surrounded by Switzerland and Austria. This beautiful little country is located in the heart of Europe in the Alps. The second country is Anguilla. Anguilla is another British territory in the Carribean which is also famous for its beautiful beaches and other attractions. Anguilla is populated by 14,906 people which make it one of the smallest countries in the world by population and land area. The third country can be Wallis And Futuna. Wallis and Futuna is an overseas community of France and it consists of two small groups of islands. It is located in the South Pacific Ocean and its total population is about 13 thousand people. At last, but not least we should consider San Marino. San Marino is the third smallest country in Europe and it is also a country with a very low unemployment rate, therefore, it is no surprise that San Marino is one of the wealthiest countries in terms of GDP per capita.
