This map of Asia shows the 48 countries including India, China, Japan, and Indonesia. It also includes the capitals and larger cities across Asia including Beijing, New Delhi, Bangkok, and Tokyo. You can also see the horn of Africa, parts of the middle east, and the various bodies of water surrounding Asia.

Asia is not only the largest continent in size, but also has the most people by a large margin. The latest estimates put the population around 4 billion which is around 60% of the world’s population.
Asia has such a large variety of countries and areas, it’s hard to generalize much about anything. The economy is great in some places, and next door you can run into some of the poorest areas in the world. One thing you can say about Asia as a whole is that the economy is growing quickly because of increased manufacturing as well as financial services and outsourcing (mainly in India.) Below we’ve listed all of the Asia countries and their population.
