First World Countries List

The theory of the First World discovered during the Cold War and comprised countries that were usually aligned with or on friendly terms with the USA (comprising all NATO countries) and were usually recognized as non-theocratic democracies with mainly market-based economies. While there is no present consensus on an precise definition of the term, in current usage, "First World country" usually includes a stable, relatively wealthy and functional non-theocratic democracy with a logically well educated population, or just any developed country.
