Third World doesn't technically refer to the level of development in its original definition, but rather who they sided with in the Cold War. (First, sided with USA, Second, Sided with USSR, Third, Neutral)

The concept of “Worlds” is actually from the Cold War - First World for the American bloc, Second World for the Soviet bloc, and Third World for neutral/non-aligned countries. That’s how countries like Switzerland are *technically* in the Third World. The idea of the Third World referring to less economically developed countries was a post-Cold War capitalist notion, that came about when you juxtapose the Global North/South divide.
