A Label I'm not Fond of

Can we do away with the label "Third-World Country?"  What it really means is that a democratic country's main form of income comes from agriculture.  "Third" sounds really bronze medal-y, like it needs to improve.  Head's up, folks, but the US (and other "First World Countries") don't provide enough food for the people who live there!  Without these third-place countries, y'all would probably start crumbling...or starving.  How about "Agriculturally-Driven Country?"  It's much clearer about one's position without confusing anyone about how "good" a country is.  I think I'm going to use that from now on.
