You'll need to be more specific.
if you are refering to the United States of America there are 50 states total.
if you are including usa and canada i'm not sure.
How are you defining "states?" If you're defining them as countries or nations -- check this site for a complete list.
If you define "states" more narrowly, then the United States has 50 states. Mexico has 31 states.
