We are all inhabitants of the same world called â€˜Earthâ€™, which is divided into five continents. Each continent is subdivided in a number of countries. A country is a whole land, a territory of a nation. A nation is a community of people mainly of common descent, history, language, religion, governmental system, and also currency.

Thus, the latter could have the possibility to build up their economy; the greedy handful must no longer exist.
Consequently, people will get together, without the necessity to fight from surrendering to their native country, as it may happen if there are no countries. This would, put off discrimination, inequality, oppression, and degradation between the rich and the poor countries. Everyone can act as part of the world, whatsoever their country could be. At this point, the dissimilarities between Western countries and the rest of the world could be diminished.
