The world map keeps changing due to geopolitical events.Borders get reshaped, new nations come up while old ones fall down or consolidate, and geographical names too get changed.These form an essential part of general awareness for which students are constantly tested in exam papers as well as interviews.

We understand that the below list of countries, capitals and their currencies are exhaustive and hard to remember at once. So I recommend you keep looking at this list once a week to experience the benefit of going through this matter. Since this is a general topic, I encourage you to bookmark this page for easier access during your study. We hope this will benefit all aspirants.
