The United Nations has 192 members (including Montenegro and Serbia - two new nations) but that number does not include the Vatican, an independent nation. 
 The US State Department recognizes 194 independent countries around the world. But that list of countries reflects the political agenda of the United States of America. As an example, it does not include Taiwan as China claims that Taiwan (the ROC) is simply a province of China. 
This list recognize Taiwan as a country, Palestine and the Vatican City but not: Kosovo, West Sahara, Greenland, nor the Order of Malta, making a total of 196.
 
The newest country is South Sudan.
