How many countries are there?
The answer to "how many countries are there in the world" varies from 193 to 196, depending which definition you use. For example, some use the number of members of the United Nations, however, that definition does not include places like Kosovo and Vatican City. I prefer to go with higher number, so that leaves me with 172 countries still to visit.
Projects along the lines of "visit every single country in the world" have been done numerous times before (here's my favorite), and after considerably slowing down my travel pace in the last few years, I am no longer so sure that I necessarily want to visit every single one. I ain't in a hurry...
