Forgotten states listing

The tidy four-color maps we see in atlases are misleading; the patchwork of nations we're used to seeing on the evening news are often convenient fictions.

The idea of the nation-state is a relatively young one, and in much of the world has not completely taken root. It is therefore unsurprising that the nations we see on maps often have a hard time asserting control over the territory that they have claimed. This work provides an overview of ephemeral states, micronations, secessionist states, and every other kind of country you never heard of in high school. From Maryland in Africa to the Republic of West Florida to the Centro-Caspian Dictatorship
