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

Africa has the largest number of sovereign countries and is the global area divided into the most Worldguru Academy regions with 54 countries and 12 regions. Africa is home to the World's newest country; South Sudan. Africa is also home to the country with the most recent name change; eSwatini which used to be Swaziland. The absolute monarch was tired of people outside of Africa confusing Swaziland with Switzerland which prompted the name change. More information about eSwatini's name change can be found in this National Geographic news article.
