List of all the Countries in the World

This list of all the countries in the world is the ‘Travelers Century Club’ list of 325 countries/unique destinations. The link to the UN list is just below.
Notes
1. I have been to every country (sovereign nation) on Earth; meaning all United Nations member countries (193 member states). I am the youngest American to do this.
2. The Travelers Century Club list has expanded to 325 now. It was 315 or 317 when I became a member over 10 years ago now-although I rarely go to meetings.
3. I have had multiple trips and expeditions cancelled to both Wake Island and the British Indian Ocean Territory; which remain the 2 hardest on the TCC list because of their military/government status. I also happen to think it’s silly that they’re on the list anyway if nobody can go to them while other similar destinations are not on the list such as Guantanamo Bay.

Country Qualification
According to the Travelers Century Club

1. Government/Administration: Any geographic area with a sovereign government or separately administered as a colony, protectorate, trusteeship territory, territory or mandate shall be considered as a separate country.

2. Enclaves/Continental Separation: Continental land areas having a common government or administration but which are geographically discontinuous either by reason of being separated by foreign land not under their control, by being located on separate continents, or by being separated by a natural body of water shall be considered as separate countries provided their population exceeds 100,000. Multiple fragments separated by the same foreign country shall only count for one country.

3. Federations: A geographic entity which is a federation of separate geographically definable entitles, each of which is a separate republic/emirate/kingdom in its own right shall be counted as separate countries.

4. Islands/island Groups:

a. An island/island group not separately defined under section I shall be considered a separate country if:

1. It is situated at least 200 miles from the closest continental portion of its administrating country; or
2. Being located within 200 miles, it has a population exceeding 100,000 and is administered as distinctively separate state(s), province(s), or department(s).

b. Island groups that are parts of an island country within the definition of section I shall be considered separate countries if:

1. They are situated at least 200 miles from the closest portion of the same island country; or
2. Being located within 200 miles, they have a population exceeding 100,000 and are administered as distinctively separate states, provinces, or departments.

5. Disputed Status: Geographically defined areas which have historically had an independent identity and whose current political status is the subject of dispute shall be counted as separate countries.

6. Unpopulated/Unadministered Areas: Any area which is unadministered or has no resident population will not be considered as a separate country, except for the political divisions of Antarctica.
