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

That's like making washington dc a country. -teamrocket747

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

Would be infinitely better off if they reunified with the South - giga

3 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

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.

'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

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.

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.

USA is not a country. If a person from Europe visited USA and somebody asked them what country they are from then they would say whitch country they lived in like say Germany or Austria or Hungary. But if some person from the states visited like say Canada or Europe they would say whitch state. Of course Canadians would know which country because unlike fatass American turds who have uncontrollable gun laws and their IQ is 97 while the average is 100. But if they visited Europe and said which state say like Georgia maybe they would not know. Georgie county or Georgia U.S state? I would say if I was European would be this. Please be for specific. Kinder surprise eggs are banned there because fatass Spoiled brat whiny stupid American children would just eat it all in one gulp. Call me butthurt if you wan't but just know I am right and you are wrong. I hate USA.

5 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!

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

I forgot Andorra even existed - SirSkeletorThe3rd

9 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.

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

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.

12 Netherlands Netherlands

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

13 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.

UNite with Italy.

What! Italy!

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!

Iran India afgahistan Pakistan and tajiki should for an aryan union

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

Territory not a country, countries are 100% different

19 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.

20 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.

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.

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.

28 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

31 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

Should be part of india. Stolen land that invaders have taken over. All of the Pakistani population consists of people that where Hindus who where forcibaly converted by the Mughal invaders. Then many years later when the British gave India its independence these people tore our country in half by asking for Pakistan (an Islamic nation for muslims). Yet if many Pakistanis look at their roots, heritage & surnames they will soon realise that they were not originally Muslim. The people of Pakistan should realise their Hindu roots and become Hindu again and Pakistan should be dissolved to become part of India. Pakistan is not a country it's a joke!

32 Belgium Belgium

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.

33 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. more.

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

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

Sure it's the wealthiest per capita, but far too small to have it's own declared independence. Would be better off being a Swiss province.

Totally agree that this country should not exist. Give it to Germany!
