This article is a list of countries by percentage of water area in relation to total area (land area and water area).[1]

This list includes three columns of data:

  • Total area (km²): is the sum of all land and water areas delimited by international boundaries and/or coastlines.
  • Land area (km²): is the aggregate of all surfaces delimited by international boundaries and/or coastlines, excluding inland water bodies (lakes, reservoirs, rivers).
  • Water area (km²): is the sum of the surfaces of all inland water bodies, such as lakes, reservoirs, or rivers, as delimited by international boundaries and/or coastlines.[2]
