10 Smallest Countries (Slideshow)


I’m fascinated by tiny countries. Am I the only one?! I can’t help but wonder what it’s like to live in a country with a smaller population than my suburban hometown. What’s more, most of the smallest nations in the world aren’t exactly high profile — when was the last time you read anything about Tuvalu, population 11,640? Well, wonder no more: read on to learn more about the least populated nations in the world.

Interesting and intriguing! So many fascinating places around the world to see with some in small packages. Certainly cuts down on travel time within the country.

Recently the sixteen year old cat that owns me started her own country on my balcony, which she rules with a velvet paw. The capital is Catniptonia. In her spare time she is the Supreme Ruler of the World but likes her own country on the balcony for vacation time.

Wait til Jane finds this article and sees Vatican City...! See how long it takes for her to find it?
