This definition provided a way of broadly categorizing the nations of the Earth into three groups based on social, political, and economic divisions.

This name is applied to the technologically less-advanced, or developing, nations of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The term was originally used to distinguish these countries from the Western nations and those that formed the Eastern bloc and usually excludes China.
