Which country has the highest population in the world?
The population in this country is still growing!
China, officially the People's Republic of China (PRC), is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country. The total population in China was last recorded at 1374.6 million people in 2015 from 552.0 million in 1950, changing 149 percent during the last 50 years.
Even if China is one of the largest countries in the world by area as well, the Chinese are constantly looking for the ways to restrict the growth of the population. The so-called "one-child" policy, for example, is supported by the majority of the population.
