The Gambia and The Bahamas SHOULD be on this list as that is their official names. Many people mistakenly just call them Bahamas and Gambia and leave the THE out. Let's get this right and include them here.

I feel like The Gambia's official name is The Gambia, which starts with T. But perhaps I am wrong. "According to the CIA World Factbook, the US Department of State, the Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World and the Permanent Committee on Geographical Names for British Official Use, the Gambia is one of only two countries whose self-standing short name for official use should begin with the word "The" (the other one being The Bahamas)."

Technically, the country's official name is the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. And the conventional short form is The Bahamas. The Bahamas starts with a T and should be included here. Bahamas is not a country. The Bahamas is.

no

it has official relations with 14 countries and unofficial relations with many more, including the US and Japan vowing to protect it in the event of a Chinese invasion. it has complete border control and governs itself, too. By every metric it is a country, regardless of whether other countries officially recognize it as so. Also, many, if not most countries that do not recognize it only to so because they want to trade with the peoples republic of china. it is not a part of china nor is it an autonomous region of china.

Apr 16, 2023
Countries that recognize Taiwan: Belize, Guatemala, Haiti, Vatican City, Honduras, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Paraguay, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Tuvalu. So we live in a world where it only takes 13 countries to recognize it to become a country? LMFAO If it is a country, why doesn't the US or the United Nations recognize it???
+1
Level 60
Sep 14, 2023
It's not about the countries that recognize it or not - if every country recognized the Republic of the Pacific Ocean, it's still not really a country.

And to answer your second question: politics.

De-jure it is far from being a country (although not too far), but de-facto see FloodedHouse's post.
