What is the most populous country in the world?

China is home to more than 1.32 billion people, which means that one in every five people on the planet is Chinese. India, the second-most populous country, has 1.13 billion people and is expected to surpass China’s population sometime before 2050. Both countries have much larger populations than the third-largest country, the United States, which is home to 304 million people.
