The Smallest Country In The World...

flag

coat of arms


at first, i thought Vatican City is one of the cities in Italy... but, when i do some research, actually it is a Sovereign city-state(can be described as a country) which independence from the Kingdom Of Italy... Monaco and Singapore are also Sovereign city-states...

State of the City of the Vatican is a landlocked Sovereign city-state whose territory consists of a walled enclave within the city of Rome, Italy...

It has an are of approximately 44 hectares(110 acres)... the population of the Sovereign city-state is just over 800, the least populated country in the world but in terms of density it is among the top 10...

Vatican City is the coloured part only... outside of the coloured part is Italy...
can you imagine how small is the country?
