Hi. If Faroe works for the Faroe Islands, it would be nice if Cook works for the Cook islands. :-)

the "oe" in Faroe Islands does mean "Island" in Faroese, so allowing it actually makes sense

NO! - Sint Maarten is the spelling of the DUTCH side of the island and Saint Martin the spelling for the FRENCH side. One should NOT be accepted for the other, as they are not interchangeable. Get a life!

No, no, no. It should only be necessary to know the answer, not how to spell it. "Saint Martin" and "St Martin" fulfill that requirement. This isn't a spelling bee: I demonstrated that I knew the answer, but I didn't get credit because I didn't know how the Dutch spell it.

If there was a downvote button I wonder how many people would have down-voted @divantilya because of the "Get a life" and all of the capital letters, although I Agree with him since Saint Martin is a completely different thing. Although I feel like Maybe Sint Marten might be okay

Interesting, with the exception of Palestine, all of these are colonies with a high degree of autonomy, as opposed to countries with limited recognition like South Ossetia. If they wanted full independence I doubt anyone would mind. Furthermore, there are many UN recognized countries with the same situation.

These ones exhibit more obviously the traits of countries, either by self-proclaimed country status plus mass recognition by other countries, and/or clear independence in their self-administration from any associated countries. As benchmark comparators, we note that Taiwan, recognized by 23 countries; Marshall Islands and Micronesia, whose defence are both run by the US; Cyprus and Georgia, each of with large chunks of territory under foreign administration; and Vatican City, with just UN-observer status, are all considered to display enough nationhood to qualify as one of the 196 nations of the Countries of the World quiz . The "countries" in the Countries 206 to 242 quiz fall far below these measures.

I don't agree with including the component countries of the Dutch and Danish crowns on this list. They are no more independent than say Bermuda, Gibraltar or the Falkland islands are. Niue and Cook Is, fair enough, they are actually UN members at lower levels as is Palestine, a UN observer. But SADR is a joke - it's basically a couple of refugee camps in Algeria - the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and Somaliland display way more sovereignty than SADR - the TRNC has fully exercised sovereignty since 1974...

Fair points, though with SADR there is a clearly demarcated line of control between the area occupied by Morocco and the area controlled by SADR; I see parallels between that situation and Georgia/South Ossetia/Abkhazia or Cyprus/Northern Cyprus. Most importantly though, not one single country has recognized Morocco's claim to Western Sahara's territory following its invasion. The difference between the component countries of the Kingdoms of Netherlands and Denmark, and the relationship of the UK to Bermuda, Gibraltar and Falkland Islands, is that the UK's territories are unambiguously territories. Conversely, no-one suggests that Greenland, Aruba etc, are territories and not countries. But I take your point that Greenland, Aruba, etc are more ambiguous in their status, being countries within kingdoms.

"Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius became part of the Netherlands as special municipalities after the Netherlands "Antilles were disbanded in 2010." Apparently some things changed in 2010... nobody informed me! So basicly they have sort of been demoted... (I wonder why Aruba Curacao and Sint maarten DID get country status and Bonaire, Saba, and Sint eustatius didnt)

Bonaire, st eustatius en Saba had referendums and all decided they wanted to be a part of the country of the Netherlands. Whereas I'm not sure if Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten had referendums or they're government decided. either way, the Dutch is in a big way still taking part in governing curacao while they kinda left Sint Maarten on its own after the hurricane disaster last year. (sparked some outrage back in the Netherlands) Also, the ABC islands are assisted by the Dutch government and military with the whole Venezuela crisis at the moment.
