Answer

"Third World" is a term whose meaning has changed over the years.

Originally, it was a country not part of the Old World--Europe--or the New World--the Americas. Then it was a country that wasn't aligned with NATO or the Warsaw Pact.

Now it's a country that's lacking in at least one important respect. Most people say "that's just the poor countries," but Saudi Arabia--where vast oil riches abound--is not a poor country but its extremely severe justice system, featuring religious police and public beheadings, makes it a Third World country.

Answer A third world country is a country that isn't very well off per se. Countries in Africa are considered third world because they are not very rich countries. Countries like Canada and the USA are not third world because they are richer and more financially well off.
