List of countries by credit rating

This is a list of countries by credit rating, showing long-term foreign currency credit ratings for sovereign bonds as reported by the three major credit rating agencies: Standard & Poor's, Fitch and Moody's. The ratings of Dagong, a Chinese rating agency which has recently received some media attention, are also included. The list also includes all subnational entities issuing sovereign bonds, but it excludes regions, provinces and municipalities issuing sub-sovereign bonds.
