South America


[STC001958] South America is the continent with the fewest number of countries, despite the fact that it is the fourth largest continent in size. The continent is home to only 12 nations, which include Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, and Venezuela. The countries that make up Central America are not considered to be part of this continent; rather, they are considered to be a part of North America. Your thoughts also may have jumped to Australia, which in and of itself is a country AND a continent, but Oceania — which encompasses countries like New Zealand, Micronesia, and Polynesia — is included in the continent’s country count, bringing its total up to 14. Africa holds the status of being the continent that is home to the most countries, with a total of 54. The continent of Asia, which both has the most people and the most land, ranks second with a total of 48.
