There are countries you can easily place a finger on, and then there are invisible countries that exist in reality and no one knows about them. Whether these attempts to not let people know about these countries are intentional or not, they exist and have populations. Lets take a look at Eight of them!
This country was formed in 1947 and accounts for 45% of Pakistan. While pakistan does not recognize it, the people claim the right to their land and also prove that the British before leaving the country had segregated it!
Tell us you have never heard of it and we say ” yes we know!” Not many know about this country that is home to 1.5 million people and lies on the edge of Myanmar, has 63 Tribes speaking more than 20 languages. This country has just one thing that binds it – the grievance against Myanmar!
3. Sovereign Military Order of Malta
This is an opposite case where in there are passports and diplomatic relations with other countries of the world, yet this country has no territory. We wonder how that is even possible but there has to be some way because this country also has a Permanent Observer status in the UN! Whoa!
This is a small enclave in the heart of Denmark. While this country was not needed, but the 850 settlers declared their country independent in 1971. Denmark has also turned a blind eye to the activities here and does not interfere much. Smoking Cannabis is legal here!
Consider a remote corner in Australia which is occupied by more Kangaroos than people. It even has a capital city called Concordia. Now the special part is that you neither need to be born here nor should you have a link, anyone anywhere can become a national of Atlantium!
6. Elgaland- Vargaland
Practically translating to all the “no man’s land” between the borders of two countries anywhere in the world, this country exists in bits and pieces all across the globe. So whenever you have travelled abroad, you have crossed this country, possibly more than one time!
7. Republic of Murrawari
In Australia in 2013, a group of local people served the Queen the notice to respond to their claim over their land and gave her 30 days to answer it. When she did not, they just simply reclaimed their land and it now exists even though it is not officially recognized.
This country lost its existence to Communalism. A settlement of Christians, they fought against the Vietnamese and found help with the French who gave them their territory in return for their loyalty. Today the area does not exist but the citizenship still does!
