San Marino is proclaimed to be the oldest country in the world. San Marino is the oldest country in Europe, becoming independent from the Roman Empire in September 3, 301 AD and has the world’s oldest constitution having been written in 1600. However, it was not recognized as an independent country until 1631, and it is true that other countries have traced back to earlier years. The real answer to this question is still very difficult for sure.

The question is ambiguous; oldest in what context. One could interpret 'oldest country' by oldest establishment of a country currently existing today; oldest place recorded to have been a country; place of oldest remains of a civilization; place of oldest remains of human habitation. Without establishing the context of the question, the answer can only be based on individual interpretation of the question. Therefore, most of the answers submitted and deleted could apply.

Those are:

  • Ethiopia is the world's oldest country.
  • While many contries including Ethiopia and Egypt retain ancient names, their borders and autonomy have altered considerably over time. The oldest country in its current form is arguably San Marino, established by early christians in the 5th century. It has also maintained its cotinued independence since that time.
  • Armenia.
  • Egypt is the oldest country in the world. It started way before the 10th millennium BC, and their first unification was c. 3150 BC. The DNA of Egyptian mummies indicate that people in Egypt lived way before the 10th millennium BC, in order to develop such a science.
  • Syria was the oldest country in history and still have it's wonderfull ancient places that everybody likes to visit. Syria has Palmyra, the ancient, wonderfull place. Syria had the first civilizations ever in the world and still the oldest country in the world.
  • Jerusalem & Macedonia are the oldest countries, then other countries started to form under different names but farce etc still formed
  • It is Iran, by the name of great empire of Persia, at that time Iraq did not actually exist because it was located in Persia as well as many other countries. You can find the old map of great Persia on Google or the British museum.
  • Egypt is older, as far as nations go, founded sometime around 3150 BC, making it over 5000 years old.
  • The oldest empire belonged to Iran, although it has lost some of it's cities but has existed since 10,000 BC and 100 years ago, Reza Shah removed the name of Persia from it because they thought it a Greek name and not good to be on this land.
  • Actually the 2 oldest places are Middle East and Africa, the oldest out of these places are Africa, this is the continent where the aborigines originated from to Australia for the first people on Australia

Additional contributions:

India is the oldest country and its civilization is even so old not to even compare to Japan,Iran,Egypt San Marino. India is again rebuilt by so many others countries ruler and destroyed its history record, buildings, and other basic things related to human's. they have tendency to destroyed another places civilization and rebuilt their own. but the real history is just different one. Space images taken by NASA reveal a mysterious ancient bridge in the Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka. The recently discovered
bridge currently named as Ram Setu (Adam's Bridge) is made of chain
of shoals, c.18 mi (30 km) long. The bridge's unique curvature and composition by age reveals that it is
man made. The legends as well as Archeological studies reveal that the
first signs of human inhabitants in Sri Lanka date back to the a primitive
age, about 1,750,000 years ago and the bridge's age is also almost
equivalent. This information is a crucial aspect for an insight into the ancient epic
RAMAYANA, which was supposed to have taken place in treta
yuga (more than 1,700,000 years ago)......
