Countries That Shouldn't Existbooklover1 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
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.

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

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.V 4 Comments
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 - DoroExploro13V 19 Comments
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. - JoeBoiV 13 Comments
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!V 8 Comments
"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.

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 DIFFERENTV 4 Comments
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.

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.
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.

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

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.

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.
It's a territory of New Zealand, not a country. - RandomGuy456
Territory not a country, countries are 100% different
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 ciriculumV 1 Comment

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.
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.

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).V 8 Comments

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 incredibleV 2 Comments
Well its not like its going to exist anyway cause its sinking

Should be part of Spain.
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.
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

Should be part of Kiribaty!
Because the people who live there are smelly garlic eating French surrender monkies
Because: Duetchland, Duetchland über Frankreich in three consetetive wars!
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 retardV 6 Comments
Country and continent it's stupid
Just Hungarian Clay
Don't do that. These types of comments and thoughts make Hungary high on some negative lists. - Alkadikce
Give it to Russia.
Because it is the literary the Russian borderland as Belarus
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.
Was created by ottoman empire and more often divides rather than bridges the yugoslav states. Should be partitioned between Serbia and Croatia
It should be part of Greece.
Why shouldn't Cyprus exist! ! Is just a country like every country in the world, people are living there like every other country! The only point is that Northen Cyprus is not recocnised as a separate democracy but as a Cyprus democracy! Cypriot people became greeks from 3000 because, Cyprus is a country
First of all there are mongols there gypsies they didn't good anything good to the world for over 6000 years! They don't have nothing even the language its not turkish but arab
They are mongols from the far far Eastern Asia. They should stay there.
They should have much less area. Implement the treaty of Sevres.
Russian puppet state with a dictator. Majority of people speak Russian anyways.
Technically a Polish-Russians bastard!
Belarus should be more like a country - Yordridge
Starts war. For example it had war with Russia for 4 years.

It's so poor I think if it didn't exist it would do everybody who lives there a favour, anyway who likes robert mugabe? - thetopten
Take off this list please because I entirely love Welsh accents, Irish accents, Scottish accents and especially British accents.
At least drop the monarchy! But it would be cool with Scottish independence.
Because England would have been a Great Power anyway!
Good luck with wishing that, not sure it'll ever happen
They hate jews and chinese
Bad country. Doesn't let Jewish people live there
Albania FILTHY KEBAB MUST BE REMOVED
Its not like they don't like jews it is just that there are way more christins and muslims so jews wouldn't fit in and there aren't a lot of jewish stuff there..
Why should Albania exist?

Japan will deserve to exist if it apologizes to the people it invaded
Shouldn't be a country. It's more of a place that is meant to invade other countries and murder 3-10 million Chinese and Koreans. It shouldn't exist! Never!... well at least until they apologize for everything
Japan should'nt be exist kill Japan fire Japan
Worst country ever. It shouldn't exist, not in a million years... at least until they apologize to Chinese, Koreans, and other Asian countries.
They are mostly European descendants that is occupying the land and calming others still in the 21th century like the Falklands that are older by 200 years, Uruguay River pulp mill, Southern Patagonian Ice Field, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands and Argentine Antarctica claimed by Argentina as part of its national territory, although this claim is not internationally recognised and overlaps with British and Chilean claims in Antarctica. Argentina is derived from the Latin name argentum meaning"silver". La Plata Basin have no sources of silver, but the first Spanish colonizers arrived to following rumors of the existence of silver mountains, hence the name.
Guys!, If Argentina did not exist, would not exist the Tango and Lionel Messi! In fact, This list shouldn't exist - Yona_db
