THE 195

There's a lot of debate around just how many countries there are in the world. Some say it's only the 193 countries, recognised by the UN. Others say its 197, by including Taiwan and Hong Kong. And then there's FIFA which have somehow come to a list of 211... After much research I decided that the most widely acepted number is 195. This consists of the 193 recognised by the UN, plus the state of Palestine and the Vatican.
