How about Diego Garcia, British Indian Ocean Territory?

As far as I know, the entire population was relocated around 1970. The only inhabitants are US and British military personnel, which makes it nothing but a military base.

Many of these should not be on this list at all. The only ones from France should be New Caledonia and Wallis and Futuna. Bonaire, Saba, and Sint Eustatius should be removed as well as all the ones from Spain, China, and Chile. Also, Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha and the ones from Australia are non-self-governing.

Dude, I pointed it out among the tips: a large array of dependency pathways. Every territory you have named, likewise are the others in the list, is geographically detached from their motherland (well, except the Crown Dependencies in the Irish Sea and in the English Channel), derives its lack of sovereignty from a colonial past - and moreover, it is not considered to be a fully ordinary administrative unit thanks to their specificity. For all of them, indeed, it's not preposterous to imagine a (even barely hypothetical) future aim to self-determination. That's all. I do not rest on any UN provisional category, comparative public law hierarchy or similar stuff. This quiz is about non-disputed, non-unrecognized, non-uninhabited, non-countries.

Well maybe you should add Corsica, Hawaii, and Northern Ireland then.

The territories on the list are not considered to be normal administrative divisions. Hawaii is one of the 50 States, Northern Ireland is one of the 4 parts of the United Kingdom, Corsica is one of the 18 regions of France (as well as Sardinia and Sicily are for Italy). All of them are fully integrated into the main administrative pattern.

British Sovereign Base areas in Cyprus, i.e. Akrotiri and Dhekelia? These are not just military installations but have Cypriot civilian populations as well, largely as a result of displacement during the 1974 conflict. Their administrative status is strange, but then most things to do with these fragments are strange...

Indeed, I was quite undecided whether to include them or not. As far as it seems understandable, it is about some indefinite loan of ground for military purposes - with British Government openly excluding civilian uses - and some thousands Cypriots still detaining private rights on properties and Cyprus' Government running some facilities located within the bases, such as an ancient monastery. It's not clear to me whether Cypriots fully have the right to live there, but everything appears more or less theoretically provisional. Like at Guantanamo Bay, did not US and Cuba fiercely hate each other. I guess, the territories on the list should have developed some sort of autonomous or even self-styled identity. Is it the case for Akrotiri and Dhekelia? I would be eager to hear it from any locals!
