Not only people can own a special world record, because countries and their residents can also do special things. In this article some interesting world records of countries are listed!
Special world records of countries
These countries own one or more world records:
- The United States : America owns several records, but the question is whether they should be so proud of that. America has the most prisoners and firearms and that is not really worth celebrating. The country has won the most Olympic medals and most millionaires live in the States. America’s defense budget is also the highest. So do not argue with the US military .
- The Netherlands : our country also holds a nice world record. We have the longest population in the world.
- Finland : if you are looking for happiness, you might want to move to Finland. Finland is where the happiest people in the world live. Yet the Netherlands is not doing so badly either, because our country is also simply in the top 10 happiest countries in the world .
- Afghanistan : They do less well in Afghanistan, because that’s where the least happy people live. Not surprising, after the Taliban has returned to power there since last year.
- Vatican City : the smallest country in the world can be found in Rome, because that is where Vatican City is located.
- Russia : the largest country in the world is already located in Europe. China or America may be big, mother Russia is much bigger. Russia also holds a record, because the country also has the most nuclear weapons .
- China : China is not the largest country in the world in terms of area, but the Asian country does have the most inhabitants. About 18 percent of the world’s population lives in China.
- Singapore : most smart people can be found in Singapore, because this country has the smartest inhabitants in the world on average. In the country you can also find the most beautiful airport in the world .
- Japan : for people who want to live as long as possible, a move to Japan might not be a bad idea, because the Japanese have the highest life expectancy.
- Ecuador : finally we close with a mistake/naughty fact. You will find the largest hunted men in Ecuador. Although the Dutch are reportedly not doing so badly in this area either!
