    First World

    This article is about the use of the term prevalent in the First World. For its use by Mao Zedong, see Three Worlds Theory. For the film, see First World (film).


    The three worlds as they were separated during the Cold War era, each with its respective allies. Colors do not represent current economical development.
    First World: the United States and its allies.
    Second World: the Soviet Union, China and their allies.
    Third World: neutral and non-aligned countries.
    The concept of the First World first originated during the Cold War, where it was used to describe countries that were aligned with the United States. These countries were democratic and capitalistic. After the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, the term "First World" took on a new meaning that was more applicable to the times. Since its original definition, the term First World has come to be largely synonymous with developed countries or highly developed countries (depending on which definition is being used).
    First World countries in general have very advanced economies and very high Human Development Indices. On the other hand, the United Nations defined the First World on the wealth of the nation's Gross National Product (GNP). The definition of First World is now less concrete than during the Cold War.
