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 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.

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 is not a stupid and useless country this is the country where Pope Francis lives and it is where the center of the huge catholic denomination is.It is the holy catholic city that is home to the pope and probably the second biggest denomination of Christianity after Protestants

Too small

2 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.

Pitcairn is a territory, not a country... - aerochamber

3 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 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

4 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.

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.

As their power grows, their intelligence falls - JustAnAccount

5 Macedonia Macedonia

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!

There are Bulgarians ( look at their language an their culture they have so many things in common than any other country ). Unfortunately for political reasons they named therselves Macedonians... Just like the ANCIENT (not slavic) greekspeaker nation of Macedonia. So today the want to bane the greeks from their own nation (the Greek state of Macedonia) and make it their own empire! It is a nation without history and they won't have a great future in this world!

It's the name for a sectioned area of governed land so it can be a country? Idiots.

This country was part of Yugoslavia till 1991 and just in one day they became Macedonians! They are Slavic with Slavic language and they got no similarities with Macedonians and Macedonia is only a part from Greece with Greek people!

7 Israel Israel Israel, officially the State of Israel is a country in the Middle East, on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea.

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

You guys are nazis

8 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.

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

Indians from the north and south are same people

India should not exist as human right are very sick in India. According to my own research, India itself has divided into different categories.. On The basis of Religion, ( Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christians, Buddhism and Jainism. On the Basis of Language, Culture, History. The biggest religion in India is Hinduism which claim all India is their property. More than 1.2 billion of population from which 75% are forces to live under poverty line. Hindu Religion which claim whole India is their property itself divide its followers into different categories such as Brahmins, the Kshatriyas, the Vaishyas and the Shudras. Brahmins are believed most respected, and Shudras are most hated. Human right violations are very common here in India. You can imagine in different states there are different rules on the basis of religion and culture a little fight can go for dreadful riots Eating Cow is prohibited in India and several incidents are available for killing minorities. Followers of same ...more

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

10 Iraq Iraq

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 should be part of Iran because of all this stuff

It was established in 1949. Its capital is Beijing. The other major cities are Hong Kong and Shanghai. Chinese (Mandarin) is the only more.

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

China has become to polluted, maybe they should make it nuclear testing land and move everyone out.

Would have been better off in the hands of kahn

China is polluted and gross. the people food and culture are beautiful and unique but their pollution is selfish and horrible and killing the whole world!

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

14 San Marino San Marino San Marino, officially the Republic of San Marino, also known as the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, is an enclaved microstate surrounded by Italy, situated on the Italian Peninsula on the northeastern side of the Apennine Mountains.

You know that San Marino and Vatican City are basically in Italy so you know you could have just put Italy.

16 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.

17 Tokelau

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

Territory not a country, countries are 100% different

18 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia.

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

19 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.

20 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.

It would be better for everyone if that country disintegrated.

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

Russia is an abomination.
