Top Ten Smallest Countries In the Whole World By Population

5. The Republic of San Marino

With a population of less than 30,000 people, this country is exceptionally tiny, boasting an area of just 24 square miles total. The country is a small area surrounded by Italy in Southern Europe, and relies a great  deal on tourism to stimulate its economy. A great vacation spot for any tourist, this tiny European destination is a hotspot for travelers the world over.


4. Palau

With a population just over 20,000 people, Palau is one of the world’s four smallest countries, about ⅓ of the size of the Marshall Islands. With over 175 square miles of land area, Palau is larger than many other countries on this list, likely comfortably fitting it’s tiny population of 20,000 people. Located on a tiny island just east of the Philippines, Palau is an isolated nation in the heart of the Pacific Ocean

Boasting an impressively tiny population of less than 15,000 people, Nauru, only eight square miles in total length, is located to the northeast of australia on a tiny island in the Pacific Ocean. Nauru is broken up into 14 districts, each one of them containing between 4 to 17 villages per district with a population between 150 and 3,000 per district.


2. Tuvalu

Having gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1978, Tuvalu is the second smallest country in the world in terms of population size, having only around 11,000 people in its entire population. Tuvalu is located to the east of Australia in the Pacific Ocean, close to Nauru as well as Fiji.

Would you believe somebody if they told you that an entire nation has a population smaller than 1,000 people total? The Vatican City is exactly that, my friends: the world’s smallest country in both population and in terms of total square miles. Boasting a population of approximately 850 total people, the entire country is the size of less than ½ of a square mile! The epicenter of Christian theology, the Vatican is one of the most famous and controversial nations in human history, and also the very smallest.
