According to 2012, there were 258 countries in the world, but now there may be more. Among these countries, there are 193 states large and small. but these are only those that are recognized in the world, but there are already quite a few separated territories that consider themselves to be states, but are not legally such. There are about 10 of them now, including Kosovo, Karabakh, Transnistria, Somaliland and some other states. Therefore, it is more difficult to say about states. but no one can answer precisely, as in the course of history, some countries appear, while others disappear, and so constantly.
