China and India have populations exceeding one billion, making them the two largest countries in the world in terms of population.

The United States ranks third with approximately 325 million residents. The BRIC countries, Brazil, Russia, India, and China, are all in the top ten most populous countries, highlighting the importance of their population size for their economic growth as emerging economies expected to dominate in the 21st century.

Despite being categorized as developing countries by the International Monetary Fund, Nigeria, Bangladesh, and Mexico have significant populations of over 190 million, almost 165 million, and around 129 million, respectively. This demonstrates that developing nations' challenges span multiple continents.

 

Interestingly, several of the world's largest economies, particularly in Europe, have relatively small populations. For example, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Italy are all among the top ten largest economies globally and have populations of less than 100 million, ranging from 82 million (Germany) to just under 60 million (Italy).

In contrast, Canada, a major economic player and one of the largest countries globally by landmass, has a relatively small population of around 36.5 million residents.
