How many democratic countries are there in the world?
There are currently 123 democratic countries in the world. (There are 192-195 countries total; this number depends on your point of view. This number doesn't include colonies, territories, etc. that are ruled by other nations and therefore don't have their own form of government but are part of the ruling nation). The number of democratic countries has been increasing over the years and may or may not increase in the future.

Norway is considered the most democratic country in the world according to the 2010 Economist Intelligence Unit.
According to the Democracy Index, which surveys 167 of the world's nations excluding only a handful of small or inaccessible nations, there are 78 democratic countries in the… world , holding around 48.4% of the world's population. Of these 78 nations, 25 are considered to be full, stable and vibrant democracies. The majority of these "full democracies" are located in Western Europe and are nations with parliamentary systems of government, as opposed to American-style presidentialism. The remaining 53 nations are considered to be "flawed democracies" - nations that are highly and functionally democratic, but have key weaknesses in their democratic process or political stability that prevent them from being regarded as full democracies. In most cases, these nations have presidential systems, and their lesser status can be attributed to an excessively powerful presidency and executive branch. This category can be misleading, however - France and Portugal, for instance, are both considered to be first-rate democracies, but they fall just a handful of points short of being eligible for full democracy status according to the Index. Of the remaining 89 nations surveyed, 37 are considered to be "hybrid regimes". These are nations which have a functioning but ineffective democratic process and, usually, a human rights record and corruption problems unbecoming of a modern democracy. Singapore and Ukraine are examples of hybrid regimes. The remaining 52 countries are "authoritarian regimes"; nations with no working democratic process. As such, we can say that there are at least 78 democratic countries in the world, and a total of 115 countries with working, if sometimes flawed and ineffectual, democratic processes. All in all, 62.4% of the world population is able to participate in some kind of genuine democratic process.
Before answering this question i would like to clarify the democratic and socialist. 'democratic' means in "Abraham Lincoln" words it is of the people, by the people and for t…he people. So, the countries which ever elects their leaders by adult suffrage they are all democratic. again when we talk about "socialist" in simple words it means elimination of inequality in income and status and standards of living. according to these definitions we can say that almost every country in the world strive for these both. still, i would like to give one example: India Democratic Socialism is defined by the World Socialist Movement as "a system of society based upon the common ownership and democratic control of the means and instruments for producing and distributing wealth by and in the interest of society as a whole." Currently there are no countries practicing this.
depends on your definition, the US for example is not a democracy but a republic, Iran is a formal democracy but is not considered democratic by most
