In my opinion, God created not just the world, but the entire universe, as a visible witness to His power, majesty, and glory (as exemplified by passages such as Job 38-41). He also created the world specifically to be a suitable habitation for humans, whom He made "in His image" (Genesis 1:26-27), and with whom He intended to have a unique fellowship.
