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 actually isn't a country, so shouldn't even be on this list. - giga

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.

It's just in the way

God does not exist

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

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 a population of over 2 million people which are a mixture of pure Macedonians, Albanians, and Serbians. Macedonian is the language spoken in the country. Macedonia has beautiful more.

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.


Divide it between Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia.

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.

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

Well, we he have a good Canadian user here called Metal_Treasure so shut up! - Userguy44

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.

I like Canadian penis

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.

This isn't a country, its stupid

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

What a stupid excuse of a country. Through it's history of dictators, it's terrible. Let South Korea buy half of the country, no wait, the ENTIRE country. - MissRWBY202

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

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.

"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!

I kind of miss it when india was a bunch of different states, but it is still a beautiful country even though they defecate in the street


If hindhi is imposed in Bengal again, we will demand for a separate country for Bengalis only, just like Bangladesh got separated from porkistan.

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.

Stupid Americans voted trump

Make america great britain again

I'm only voting this because some dumb Americans put Canada on this list.

"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

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

Yea I guess its kinda done done know if you should put that worthless black flag since american imperalism but it will prolly be part of israel eventually.

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.

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.

They kills innocent people

The most illegal country of recent times

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.

Ukraine should invade Moldova

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

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

That name is too racist

Montenegro is just Serbia but with coastline

Well I wouldn't really lived without Montenegro - CerealGuy

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

18 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.

19 Somalia Somalia

Give Somaliland recognition!

I am not even African-whatsoever, but I read the Somaliland and its rival Puntland are functionally independent but are somehow lumped with ex-state which coudl barely police its own capital.

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.

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.

Cancer of world

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.

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

26 Pakistan Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are more.

This list shouldn't exist. - WorldPuncher47592834

Useless state Indian colony

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).

27 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.

28 Nauru Nauru Nauru, officially the Republic of Nauru and formerly known as Pleasant Island, is an island country in Micronesia in the Central Pacific. It's the third smallest country in the world and the least visited country in the world as well.

Should be part of Kiribaty!

29 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

Because the people who live there are smelly garlic eating French surrender monkies

Because: Duetchland, Duetchland über Frankreich in three consetetive wars!

30 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Australia doesn't exist though

Country and continent it's stupid

31 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.

Don't do that. These types of comments and thoughts make Hungary high on some negative lists. - Alkadikce

33 Bosnia-Herzegovina

Should be exterminated, along with the whole Balkan region..
It is a plague of Europe, basically.
Lots of human sheep live here.

Was created by ottoman empire and more often divides rather than bridges the yugoslav states. Should be partitioned between Serbia and Croatia

34 Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

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.

Give it to Russia.

Because it is the literary the Russian borderland as Belarus

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
