This article will bring you to the list of the smallest countries in the world by population and land area. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. The smallest countries n the world are unlikely to start wars and they are not very present on TV and in the newspaper. Some of them are so small that they make our hometown appear large in comparison, but these countries are usually very popular tourist destinations as they often have beautiful beaches and wonderful nature. Being so small, they offer peace and tranquility you are not likely to find in the most densely populated countries in the world.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of smallest countries in the world by population and land area from their list.
The first country can be Anguilla, where the population is 14,906 and the land area is 90 square km. 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 next country on our short list should be Niue now, where the population is 1,614 and the land area is 260 square km. An island country in the South Pacific Ocean, Niue has only 1,614 inhabitants, and it’s on the third spot on our list of smallest countries in the world by population and land area. The island is known as paradise island due to the beautiful scenery. Now let’s see the numbers of Wallis and Futuna, where the population is 13,090 and the land area is 142.42 square km. 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 are mentioning San Marino , where the population is 32,104 and the land area is 61 square km. 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.
