Here you can find information on the states and regions of the world, including national search engines and information portals. For convenience, countries are grouped by continent or part of the world. The difference here is that America is part of the world, while North and South America are separate continents (or continents). On the other hand, Europe and Asia are not continents, but parts of the world that are located on the continent of Eurasia.

At the same time, there is a unique country, Russia, which has spread to Eastern Europe and Siberia. It is difficult to attribute it to a certain part of the world, not only formally, but also historically. If the center of the Proto-Slavic ethnos originated in Europe, then it developed with constant interaction with the Scythian-Sarmatian world, the waves of which overflowed into Eastern Europe from the steppes on the other side of the Volga.

Cimmerians, Scythians, Sarmatians, Alans, Huns, Avars, Ugrians, Turkic and Mongol tribes endless waves walked along the Great Steppe from east to west through the Slavic lands of the Black Sea region. They formalized the borders of the future Russia, but could not forever conquer and assimilate neither the ancient Slavic tribes, nor the multinational state of Rus, which was based on the Eastern Slavs. Demographically, politically and culturally, Russia has mastered all this space and became the largest country in the world.

When I began to compose the table of contents for this page, I had the idea to arrange the sections from west to east and from north to south. But then I decided that it was universal - alphabetically. At the same time, an interesting result was obtained - the parts of the world followed each other in order, in which modern people spread across the planet, leaving Africa. After all, at first they penetrated through the Horn of Africa to the Arabian Peninsula, then through the south of Asia they reached New Guinea and Australia. Then they began to develop the colder lands of Asia, and only then they decided to conquer Europe from the Neanderthals. And they moved to Europe from Africa (Grimaldians in Italy), the Middle East and from the west of modern Russia (Voronezh). Therefore, I placed Russia in front of Europe.
