First second third worlds map

The three worlds as they were separated during the Cold War era, each with its respective allies as of the period between 30 April 1975 (the fall of Saigon) and 23 August 1975 (the communist takeover in Laos). Colors do not represent current economic 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 term "Second World" is a phrase used to describe those countries which are allied with or are supported by the "First World" countries (the "Superpowers"). These include countries supported by the United States, such as Colombia, Israel, etc., and those supported by the former Soviet Union, also known as the communist states within the Soviet Union's sphere of influence. Along with "First World" and "Third World", the term is used to divide the nations of Earth into three broad categories.
