Developed Countries List: A developed country is a sovereign state that has a high quality of life, developed economy and advanced technological infrastructure relative to other less industrialized nations. Most commonly, the criteria for evaluating the degree of economic development are Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Gross National Product (GNP), the per capita income level of industrialization, amount of widespread infrastructure and general standard of living.
Developed countries have generally more advanced post industrial economies, meaning the service sector provides more wealth than the industrial sector. They are contrasted with developing countries, which are in the process of industrialization or are pre industrial and almost entirely agrarian, some of which might fall into the category of least developed countries.
