List Of World Countries And Capitals

The United Nations (UN) has 193 member states as of April 2023. South Sudan was the most recent country to join the UN, joining on July 14, 2011. The UN also has two observer states, the Holy See (Vatican City) and Palestine.

Oldest Capital City

Damascus, Syria’s capital city, is thought to be the world’s oldest continuously inhabited capital city. Damascus has been continuously inhabited for over 11,000 years and has served as the capital city for numerous empires and civilizations throughout its history, including the Aramaean, Assyrian, Babylonian, Persian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Islamic, and Ottoman empires. Damascus is still an important cultural and political centre in the Middle East today.

Youngest Capital City

Ngerulmud, the capital city of Palau, is widely regarded as the world’s youngest capital city. Ngerulmud was designated as Palau’s capital in 2006, succeeding Koror as the country’s capital. The decision to relocate the capital was made in response to concerns about overcrowding and environmental degradation in Koror, which had served as the country’s capital since its independence from the United States in 1994. Ngerulmud was built on a site in the state of Melekeok and became the world’s newest capital city in 2006, making it the world’s newest capital city.

Youngest Country in the World

South Sudan, which gained independence from Sudan on July 9, 2011, after a referendum in which nearly 99% of voters chose independence, is the world’s newest country as of my knowledge cutoff date of September 2021. On July 14, 2011, South Sudan became the 193rd member state of the United Nations. It is a landlocked country in East-Central Africa, with Juba as its capital.
