First world = Europe
Second world = western hemisphere, or rather, North America, since the southern half kinda lagged.
But that doesn't apply anymore, the US is ranked below any number of third world (which generally means Africa and other "savage" colonies from a 1900-perspective) countries in many ways now. We worked hard to become a htird world country, I say we should be proud of that. (sigh)
