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.

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.

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

This should never exist because look at its name. It’s Vatican City. City. It’s a city.

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!

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!

Are you an idiot?

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 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

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

6 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.

Start to many wars tot any propaganda

7 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.

Iraq should be part of Iran because of all this stuff

Iraq no longer even exists.

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

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

No one could believe that India can't exist. India is gonna live forever. I m proud Indian.I don't think others could understand my country more than those living here

9 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

They kills innocent people

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.

12 China China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. 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 no sense, China is the a global superpower with the same power as the US. Sure, some American TopTenners think that it's a bad thing but if China ceases to exist, the countries in its sphere of influence will fall too. Also, China has 1.3 BILLION people, making it the most populated country in the world (although India's going to overtake China soon as number 1) - GriffinDoge

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

China sucks they eat dog and cat and are polluting our world

The only thing that shouldn't exist is this list. - 50

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

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

Not exactly 100%, territories have quite a lot of autonomy and some can even be considered dependent countries. - GriffinDoge

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 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.

Then should it be part of Turkey?

Put Afghanistan on this list.

They should be divided.

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

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

21 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.

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 Nauru Nauru Nauru, officially the Republic of Nauru and formerly known as Pleasant Island, is an island country in Micronesia in the Central Pacific.

Should be part of Kiribaty!

27 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.

28 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

Useless state Indian colony

29 Belgium Belgium

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

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

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.

30 Slovakia Slovakia

Just Hungarian Clay

31 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.

Country and continent it's stupid

32 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 .

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 into poor and obscurantism pushing many people abroad to live a normal way.

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

35 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.

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.

Because England would have been a Great Power anyway!

Good luck with wishing that, not sure it'll ever happen
