Smallest Countries - No 1

Vatican City -
0.2 square miles -
The world's smallest state, the Vatican has a population of 770, none of whom are permanent residents. The tiny country which surrounds St. Peter's Basilica is the spiritual center for the world's Roman Catholics (over 1 billion strong).

Also known as the Holy See, Vatican City is surrounded by Rome, Italy.
