Countries That Shouldn't Exist

These are the countries that should just become a part of another country because it doesn't fit the criteria of being a country well.

The Top Ten

1 Pitcairn Islands

Sure, they're in the middle of the pacific ocean, but so is Hawaii, and that's not a country! The population is 48 people. 48! - booklover1

This is 100% Certain. Pitcairn Islands is not a country! It is not Independent at all!

It is a British Overseas territory!

This is not a country, som to say that it should not be a country makes no sense.

2 Vatican City Vatican City Vatican City, officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City, is a walled enclave within the city of Rome.

Vatican City shouldn't be a country because it's a religious/political entity but it isn't a cultural/ethnic entity. The population is very low and the city is entirely surrounded by Italy. I believe the Vatican City should either be classified as an Italian territory or as an independent territory (but not a country). In my opinion, Vatican City is on-par with entities such as Google Headquarters and Bill Gates's house.

I don't know why they had to separate this from Italy... Pretty useless and no changes...

This gets my vote because it is basically a country inside a country. It could work for a city however. - CoolCat999

It's just in the way

3 Macedonia Macedonia Macedonia borders with Greece to the south, Albania to the West, Bulgaria to the East, Serbia and Kosovo to the North. It has population of over 2 million people which are mixture of pure Macedonians, Albanians and Serbians. Macedonian is the language spoken in the country. Macedonia has beautiful forests, more.

Divide it between Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia.

Not so true, Look at your opinions about my country, maybe we are the poorest,weakest nation in all of Europe but we have rich History,Nice people, Great Food... Just Because of the countries that we share border want to remove us off from the World Map.. Well even thought if it was about it can't be done.. Because Donald Trump is running for Office,Sorry idiots that things that you wish it could be done for this peacefully country can't be done since Trump will be running for President!

They are literally bulgarians that believe they have something that differentiates them from the rest

Bulgarians pretending to be descendants of Macedon, is just silly.

This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, more.

I am canadian and it really irritates me when some Americans say Canada is not a country because we are. what the hell does the U.S know about Canada?

Not all Americans don't know their geography. I'm American and I know what Canada is. - TeamRocket747

Are you an idiot?

Canada is a great country and I don't care what Americans think about us. I know we should exist no matter what Donald Trump says.

It doesn't exist anyway. It's just called America #2 - DoroExploro13

5 North Korea North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

Why it shouldn't exist? Because it's a complete failure!

Waste of land. South Korea could've used it to extend their land.

It's own people are practically enslaved to a chubby self obsessed cheese addict, they do not benefit the world in any way. This country is truly pathetic all around. - ShanB

Well, you know why? Because Kim Jong Un, the “supreme leader,” treats his people inhumanely because he only cares about his nuclear missile program. This should be given to South Korea so we wouldn’t have to worry about being nuked. - JoeBoi

6 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. more.

What's really surprising is how long India has existed in peace with all the different religious and ethnic groups that divided India for centuries. - JustAnAccount

Just shut up, India is land of unity in diversity, It already seperated Pakistan and Bangladesh, so now what do you want? Monsters

Indians from the north and south are same people

"Incredible India" my arse! India is effed up now to be honest, look at all their separatist movements. I was an Avid Bollywood junkie but that is a distraction from Indian's true image and the mentality of the people and Hindu fanatics who support Modi's twisted views. Bye, India!

7 United States of America United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

"involved in way too many wars." Really lets look at the facts the wars that the US has been involved in Revolutionary war, War of 1812, Civil War, Spanish-American War, WW1, WW2, Korean War, Vietnamese war, War in Iraq. OK about 6 out of 8 of those France was involved in. France Actually invaded Vietnam to re-control it before the US did anything. Umm Korean war was a UN Sanctioned war, where we were forced into.

Next stupid comment: "US of A doesn't even have an ancient history. It's just a "country" made by colonizers and some migrants, not a country with their original language, race, and identity. IT'S A STOLEN LAND! " So all the South/ Central American Countries, Mexico, Canada, and all the Caribbean countries should not be allowed to be countries. We fought our independence from the British and we where the only British colony to do so.

'We fought for our independence'. Yes, along with another three countries. Without the help you'd probably never be in the country United States of America. - SallyMcKeran

Everyone commenting is probably just a foreigner who knows nothing about the land. Just saying, if you aren't from the US, you are below us. We may be involved in too many wars, but we are one of the most powerful countries in the world.

Why should they exists, they have been involved in way too many wars, killed way too many people, I don't hate the people but they could start caring more and destroying the current USA and building a new one.

Stupid Americans voted trump

8 Iraq Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. more.

Before Bush invaded, Iraq was stable, although it was under control by a murderous dictator, it was nevertheless, stable. Even if groups like ISIS came to Saddam's Iraq, his military would've killed them by now. But Bush invaded them making Iraq unstable, poor, robbed, and is full of ISIS militants now. Thanks Bush! For making the Middle East even more unstable! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Iraq as we know it is a country formed by the mistakes of western foreign policy and imperialism, combining three ethic groups that all hate each other. Iraq, as a state now, as it is, should not exist.

Then who should they be part of Iran or Turkey?

Iraq is an old country isis is not muslims,isis is shiah SHIAH AND MUSLIMS ARE DIFFERENT

9 Israel Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world but arab, african and east asian communities still can be found. more.

First they are a bunch of people with different nationalities who believe their ancestors lived in that land, so a Hungarian Jew who may e have been originally a pagan should live on a country his or her ancestors didn't know existed?

Why isn't this higher. They forced the Palestinians out of their homes. They should of made Israel in Europe were people would of supported it.

The most illegal country of recent times

They kills innocent people

10 Netherlands Netherlands

Netherlands has opened their borders, they mixed with many cultures and now there is no modern Dutch culture(it is actually mix of some for example Dutch sounds like mix of German and English). There is nothing special about them, actually it's another modern, tolerant country. So why do the Netherlands exist?

I am Dutch! Why is this on the list? - Userguy44

I am Dutch myself and I'm adding the Netherlands to this list. I absolutely hate Dutch people.

The Contenders

11 Moldova Moldova Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south.

Should be part of Romania.

Too Much alcohol they drink

Moldova is an area of land in Europe named Moldova. It is an internationally recognised name for that area of land.

'Moldovaneasca' isn't a language

It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, more.

This makes even less sense than to say that Iran should not exist.

If china doesn't exist, Us would still be at the great depression. - WorldPuncher47592834

Iran had the first power in the world for long time why it shouldn't be exist?!

Nonsense. I do not like the current regime, but unlike most of its neighbours, it forms a natural country.

Iran India afgahistan Pakistan and tajiki should for an aryan union

14 Montenegro Montenegro

Well I wouldn't really lived without Montenegro - CerealGuy

Montenegro is just Serbia but with coastline

That name is too racist

The people speak serbian,they used to call them selves serbs untill 10 years ago and the first serbian state was in the place of montenegro called zeta.Basically it's the original serbia.

15 Tokelau

It's a territory of New Zealand, not a country. - RandomGuy456

Territory not a country, countries are 100% different

16 Niue

My teacher comes from there, and to be honest it's so tiny there's really no point of having it a country. Half the people from there move to New Zealand anyway.

It's not very known about and it just shouldn't exist when I was searching for new countries, this popped up and thought it would be interesting but sadly just a tiny island nation that nobody cares about and few people live there.

Niue is a great place you just don't have good taste.

Niue, Samoa, and Tonga are all beautiful. Where I live there are a lot of Niuen people, and learning their language is part of our education ciriculum

17 Syria Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.

Then should it be part of Turkey?

Put Afghanistan on this list.

They should be divided.

18 Somalia Somalia

Here's a guide to survive in Somalia!

Step 1: Be a pirate
Step 2: You're still gonna die from STDs, famine, and the UN - SirSkeletorThe3rd

War zone don't go unless you want a lost head

It was stable when we had 25,000 marines parked there, but the UN pussed out and chaos ensued.

19 Russia Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia, while a portion of it remains in Europe. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. more.

Russia is a country of good, Russia is always trying to help other countries. Russia loves you all. Russia has always withstand the hatred of other countries. And does not fall. Because the Russian soul is strong

Russia should be part of Mongolia and China. It only has like 3 large European cities... Plus it seems to have inherited the Golden Horde and it's barbaric personality since it's unsuccessfully trying to invade every single country that borders it.

Many parts of Russia are not Russian, no Russians live there.

It would be better for everyone if that country disintegrated.

Cancer of world

20 Republic of Kosovo

Another illegal country, Kosovo belongs to Serbia.

A monstrosity created by Albanian colonization, and of course, with the aid of the US in order to rip apart even more territory from Serbia just so they can build an army base there.

Kosovo is and always be Serbian - RedAce66

Kosovo is an illegitimate state run by a former black market organ dealer (Hashim theçi) and his gang-like government of cronies who exert near complete control over politics and crime within Kosovo. The literal only reason why Kosovo is a country is so that the United States can have a military base in the Balkans to counter the Russians and their ally Serbia. However, when Russia supports a breakaway ethnic state (like in South Ossetia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Abkhazia, etc) the USA moans and complains about how the Russians are undermining legitimate stable states. Furthermore, the pretense of establishing Kosovo as an "Albanian enclave" is preposterous, considering that the region of Kosovo is one of the oldest and most nationally important regions for Serbian culture/history (Battle of Kosovo 1389) and the fact that Kosovo contains many of the Serbian Orthodox Church's most sacred sites (Patriarchate of Peć Monastery).

Montserrat's Capital Plymouth is having a volcano

23 Greece Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

Greece is the only country in the whole universe that deserves to exist forever. Ancient Greeks believed in human intelligence, they seperated humans from animals. They even created gods in human forms. Modern Greece is still showing the divine way of living to the world.

Greece is in a financial crisis owing many countries lots of money and their economy does not seem to be getting any better.

Haha, that person who voted Greece is genuinly sarcastically funny (i hope)

This is funny beacause without Greece (Ancient) most of the sciences (Mathematics, Astronomy etc.) were not going to exist. The intelligence of the Greeks is just incredible

25 Andorra Andorra Andorra, officially the Principality of Andorra, also called the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra, is a sovereign landlocked microstate in Southwestern Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France.

I forgot Andorra even existed - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Should be part of Spain.

26 Belgium Belgium Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Western Europe bordered by France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg. A small and densely populated country, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometers (11,787 square miles) and has a population of more than 11 million.

Agree. Give Flanders to the Netherlands and Wallonia to France.

Should be split up between France, the Netherlands, and Germany. Brussels should become a purely EU ruled region since it is the EU capital.

Flanders shouldn't actually have Antwerp, "Flemish" Brabant and Belgian Limburg. The only reason people see those places as Flemish is because William of the Netherlands gave Flemish bourgeoisie control over the provinces, but historically they can't be ethnically Flemish, if that's even an ethnicity. Same thing for Wallonia, it shouldn't have Hainaut, Liege etc.
Belgium was made after many European powers colonized the place, giving their own part of influence in the culture (cuisine, art) Language isn't all there is to culture. Switzerland, Luxemburg etc. all have multiple languages. Belgium's culture is existent. It's only divided because the media tells us it is. It IS a country.

27 Pakistan Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan and is known as the world's second most beautiful capital city. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second more.

Pakistan was better of staying with India. It got really messed up after they split. India and Pakistan were both healthier together.

This insane country that possesses nuclear weapons should NOT exist, and only exists because of Islamic separatists that broke away from India (same with Bangladesh, that country should exist either).

This terrorist nation shouldn't exist as a nation. Its acceptable to be a state in INDIA

This list shouldn't exist. - WorldPuncher47592834

30 Poland Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately more.

Literally just a German and Roman Catholic puppet state, and is one of the most treacherous, untrustworthy countries in history; should be annexed between Ukraine, Germany, and Lithuania.

Correct. There land originally belonged to the Germans!

This country keeps its inhabitants in poor and obscurantism pushing many of them abroad to live a normal life.

Poland existed way before Germany and Russia and the lands were stolen from Poland. Some lands were never given back. Lwów is a Polish city just like Wilno is. It seems like everyone commenting here is a retard

Give it to Russia.

Because it is the literary the Russian borderland as Belarus

Fake country

Ukraine is a legitimate country, meaning "Homeland", that existed long before Poland or Russia, and thus has a right to its existence more than its oppressors.

Lviv is rightfully Ukrainian land since its founding by Ukrainian nobility, King Danylo I and Prince Lev I, the latter of which is the source of the city's namesake. It was already developed before being stolen by Poland, along with the rest of modern West Ukraine. Due to this and the fact that both Poland and Russia being artificial countries created as puppet states of the Germans/Vatican and Mongolians, respectively, they should be given to Ukraine, especially Kholm, West Poland, Smolensk, and Krasnador Krai.
