    This actually varies according to your source! For example, certian Arab governments do not recognize Israel as a country due to political reasons. There are 191 member states to the United Nations- but Vatican City has chosen not to join. So probably the most reliable source would be the U.S. government. According to the U.S. government there are 192 independent nations.
