List of sovereign states
This is a list of sovereign states, containing 203 entries, giving an overview of states around the world with information on the status and recognition of their sovereignty.

It includes both states widely recognized to be de jure sovereign and states that claim de jure sovereignty and exercise de facto control over some territory, but which are not generally recognised.
Note: the status of some entries on this list is disputed. For information on the criteria used to determine the contents of this list, see the "criteria for inclusion" section below.
