How many countries are there in the world?
There are 196 countries in the world, although some controversy still exists.
The U.S. government does not recognize Taiwan as an official independent country and believes there are only 195 countries in the world. There are 193 members of the United Nations and that number often gets mistaken for the number of countries in the world.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has 159 member states as of February 2013. The member states of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are those states which have joined the international organization that seeks to promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy, and to inhibit its use for any military purpose, including nuclear weapons. The IAEA was established as an autonomous organization on 29 July 1957. Though established independently of the United Nations through its own international treaty, the IAEA Statute, the IAEA reports to both the UN General Assembly and Security Council. Refer to the relevant link below for the full list of member states.
Here are some statistics for each country in the world (listed below in alphabetical order):

When including Greenland and Faroe Islands:
*Might or might not include Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and other PRC regions depending on topic.
**The UK is a sovereign (unitary) state led by its own government, the Prime Minister being David Cameron and the monarch Queen Elizabeth II, and is made up of 4 'countries': Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England. While 'countries' is the commonly-used descriptive term, owing to the absence of a formal British constitution and the long and complex history of the formation of the UK, the countries of the UK have no official appellation. As a consequence, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are not formal subdivisions of the United Kingdom.
There are 155 permanent countries in the world that are recognised by the UN Security Council but, as of July 9, 2011 there are 193 actual countries although some of them are very small and not internationally recognised. At least that is what a program I was watch ing the other day had to say on the subject.
A very frequent geographical question is "How many countries are in the world?" Different numbers pop up when one inquires or reads about the number of countries in the world. Each source you use often yields a different answer. Ultimately, the best answer is that there are 196 countries in the world.
There are 193 members of the United Nations. Unfortunately, the number 193 is too often used to represent the number of countries in the world. Although this number represents almost all of the countries in the world, there are still two recognized independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo, that are independent and are not members of the U.N. so 193 is not the number of countries in the world.
U.S. Department of State
The United States' State Department recognizes 195 independent countries around the world. Their list of 195 countries reflects the political agenda of the United States of America and its allies. Missing from the State Department's list is one entity that may or may not be considered a country, depending on who you talk to.
