This article includes a list of countries of the world sorted by current account balance as a percentage of gross domestic product (nominal GDP).

The first list includes 2014 data for members of the International Monetary Fund. The UN World Bank sites the IMF as the source for their data on Current Account Balance, and so is not included separately on this page. The second list includes only countries for which the CIA World Factbook lists 2014 estimates for both Current Account Balance and GDP.
