A perfect set is a closed set such that every single point in the set is a limit point of the set. For example, $\mathbb{R}$ is a perfect set, though a more interesting example is the Cantor set.

In $\mathbb{R}^n$, any perfect set has an uncountable number of points. This can be shown by taking increasingly smaller neighborhoods about a point in the set.
