Vatican City

The most populated country in the world is China, with an estimated 1.3 billion citizens. But the country with the smallest population is the Vatican.

That’s right! In 1929 under the terms of the Lateran Treaty, Vatican City (or Holy See) was established as an independent state of 109 acres within Rome. Less than a thousand people live in this small country, which is governed by the pope—who has absolute executive, legislative, and judicial powers.

Furthermore, Vatican City has its own currency and postal system. It also has a small railroad station. The city publishes a daily newspaper and monthly journal, and it manages its own telephone and telegraph services. The famous Swiss Guard serves as police, maintaining internal security and protection of the pope.
