Macedonian is the official language of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. It is sometimes considered a dialect of Bulgarian, and was only recognised as a distinct language in 1944.

There are nearly 2 million speakers, in around 13 territories. Outside Macedonia, the largest populations of speakers are in Greece, Germany, Australia and Italy, with smaller populations in Canada and the United States.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Macedonian as a first language that live in that territory.
