According to the CIA World Factbook, depending on the convention used, there are five to seven continents. The convention that states there are seven continents recognises them as:
  • Africa
  • North America
  • South America
  • Asia
  • Australia (sometimes referred to as Oceania, but not by inhabitants of the region)
  • Antarctica
  • Europe

Some conventions consider Europe and Asia to be one continent, and some consider North and South America to be a single continent.

*(Forms like 'Eurasia' applies to the combined region, or the borders between them. Or 'Australasia' and 'Oceania', neither of which is a real continent but a general region covering Australia and New Zealand, and some islands of south-east Asia, which might be used to indicate the region around southern Indonesia.)
