The Western world, also known as the West, primarily refers to various nations and states in the regions of Australasia, Europe, and the Americas. The Western world likewise is called the Occident (from Latin occidēns: "setting down, sunset, west"), in contrast to the Eastern world known as the Orient (from Latin oriēns: "origin, sunrise, east").

The West is considered an evolving concept; made up of cultural, political, and economic synergy among diverse groups of people, and not a rigid region with fixed borders and members. Definitions for "Western world" vary according to context and perspectives.[1]
