This question already has an answer here:

I am looking for a shapefile of the rough outline of the UK to use as a basemap, where is the best place to source one? All the shapefiles I have found have been extremely detailed with internal boundaries etc.

  • @MAJ742 - small nuance here, OP wishes low resolution data – GISGe Feb 7 '18 at 14:12
  • @GISGe - I spotted that, but the accepted answer to the question mentions the OSM data and that it is available in a variety of resolutions so figured that would probably still be sufficient. – MAJ742 Feb 7 '18 at 16:38

On Eurostat's Geodata page you can download shapefiles of country boundaries (worldwide) for use at different scales (less detailed scale is 1:60 million).

There is a line and a polygon shapefile.
