Capital City of the World Countries

A capital or capital city is the municipality holding primary status in a department, country, state or other administrative region, usually as its seat of the government. A capital is typically a city that physically encompasses the government's offices and meeting places. The status as capital is often designated by its law or constitution. In some jurisdictions, including several countries, different branches of government are in different settlements. In some cases, a distinction is made between the official (constitutional) capital and the seat of government, which is in another place.

This list below is a list of national capitals, including capitals of territories and dependencies, non-sovereign states including associated states and entities whose sovereignty is disputed. The list is associated by the international standard ISO 3166-1, or that are included in the list of states with limited recognition.
