They are a part of the world that hasn't developed into an organized country. This is classified as a country that doesn't have a good government, has a lot of poverty and doesn't have a good social relationship with other countries. These countries are many Central and eastern African Countries and most of Southeast Asia. The term 1st world countries isn't used often. You live in a developed country, a developing country or an undeveloped country. The USA, Canada, much of Europe, China, Japan and Australia are developed countries. Developing countries are Turkey, Mexico and parts of South America.
