Fourth World Countries 2020

The term “Fourth World Countries” is used to describe parts of countries in the Third World that are most stricken by poverty. Most of these regions do not have political ties. The people of these nations are hunter-gatherers, live in nomadic communities, or are part of tribes. In some cases, populations of these people may live in a First World country. However, their living standards are similar to those of Third World nations.

It is important to note that many of these nations are self-surviving. However, their economic performance is much lower than other more-developed nations of the world. For example, Aboriginal tribes do not require assistance from other nations, but they do not contribute to the global economy. These nations are typically excluded from world statistics.

The nations classified as Fourth World are labeled by the United Nations as the Least Developed Countries, or LDCs. These countries rank lower than other nations in terms of socioeconomic development and human development index ratings. These LDCs, which also have Fourth World regions, include the following nations.
