Some of the largest independent nations in the world are the People's Republic of China, the Russian Federation, the United States of America, Canada, India, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Australia, while the smallest nations include Vatican City, Monaco, Andorra, and Singapore.
As represented on the world map, certain countries like Brazil, Australia, and Indonesia enjoy long coastlines, while others are completely landlocked like Bhutan, Switzerland and Lesotho.

The world political map shows dependent territories, like Greenland and the Faroe Islands of Denmark, as well as the French Overseas Territories, which are geographically and culturally distinct, enjoying some degree of autonomy but are not independent states.

The globe map also represents the Special Administrative Regions like Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR that possess most of the characteristics of an independent nation under the one country two systems' policy. They enjoy substantial autonomy, yet are integral parts of the People's Republic of China. It is the division of the world into separate political entities that denote the political boundaries. The political world map shows how some of the borders are created by geological features such as mountains and rivers, while others are solely politically demarcated. The map shown follows the latest globally accepted standards for national boundaries.
