Global Area #2 "Asia"

Asia has 49 Sovereign Countries Spread Across 8 Regions

Pie Chart showing Asia's percentage slice of the World's Sovereign Countries

The global area of Asia is the World's largest continent with the highest population. Only Africa has a higher sovereign country count. Asia is bounded in the north by the Arctic Ocean, on the east by the Pacific Ocean, and on the south by the Indian Ocean. Asia's western boundary abuts Europe's eastern boundary and is a cultural and historical construct since there is no clear geographical divider between them. More information can be found in the Wikipedia article on Asia.

Worldguru Academy divides Asia into eight regions:

  1. Southeast Asia Islands
    • containing 7 sovereign countries
  2. Southeast Asia Mainland
    • containing 5 sovereign countries
  3. Indian Subcontinent

  3. "Route Visualization Tool" button
