List of countries and outlying territories by total area

This is a list of the world's sovereign states and their dependent territories by area, ranked by total area.

Entries in this list comprise those in the ISO standard 3166-1, which includes sovereign states and dependent territories. Largely unrecognised states are included in the list in ranked order, but are not actually given a rank number. Not included in the list are individual country claims to parts of the continent of Antarctica, and entities such as the European Union[Note 1] (4,324,782 km2 or 1,669,808 sq mi total area) that have some degree of sovereignty but do not consider themselves to be sovereign countries or dependent territories. States with limited recognition that are not listed in the ISO standard ISO 3166-1 are not included, but are noted within the countries they are recognised as part of with areas given.

This list includes three measurements of area:

  • Total area: is the sum of all land and inland water bodies (lakes, reservoirs, rivers) delimited by international boundaries or coastlines.
  • Land area: is the aggregate of all surfaces delimited by international boundaries and/or coastlines, excluding inland water bodies (lakes, reservoirs, rivers).
  • Water area: is the sum of the surfaces of all inland water bodies, such as lakes, reservoirs, or rivers, as delimited by international boundaries and/or coastlines.[2] Territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zones are not included. Some entries may also include coastal waters, depending on source, notably on CIA sources.

Data are taken from the United Nations Statistics Division unless otherwise noted.[3]
