Top 10 Least Populated Countries in the World

The list of top 10 least populated countries in the world changes very frequently because of migrations and imbalance in birth and death rates of different countries. Vatican city is the least populated country in the world with merely 800 people. Some of these countries are so small in area that they are also the most densely populated countries in the world. For example, Monaco is the most densely populated country in the world.
