impressive I am sure...although Czechoslovakia has not been a country since 1993 - when it split to become the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

neither is Hong Kong a separate country [ technically its China]
sorry ;(

Man, this is really hard without a map. That's all I can think of right now. 132ish. I figure I'm missing at least 20... how many countries are there, anyway?

196 if you include Taiwan [ China disagrees]

South Sudan was the last one in 2011.

you can include England/Scotland/Wales as they are countries within a country UK.

I think the trickiest part of the world for me was actually the Caribbean: several of those islands are still colonies, so even some of the ones I remembered I didn't put down because I can't recall whether they're actually independent or not. Also, I know there's another little one next to Rwanda which I can't recall the name of, which is bugging me more than the others I missed because I know it's there.

Also, I am not including entities whose status is controversial or in dispute here. This list would include Taiwan, Palestine (the two most famous examples), Northern Cyprus (the other one which is sort of well-known), Western Sahara, Abhkazia, South Ossetia, Transnistria, and there are probably others I can't think of.

167. Not as good as I'd hoped.

ED: Burundi was the one I couldn't think of next to Rwanda, and I totally meant Mauritania when I said Mauritius. Besides that, the most embarrassing omissions have to be Madagascar and Kuwait, no excuse for missing those. I don't feel to bad about missing some of the smaller West African countries and many of the Caribbean islands, though I still wish I had remembered more of them.

This is probably an endless discussion, but really, Wales and Scotland DO NOT COUNT! Either that, or we are counting all 50 US states, all Bundeslander, all autonomous regions in Russia, 2 Belgiums and even Friesland.

And that is just the top of the iceberg.

I'd also say they don't count as they aren't independent nations, but I threw them in at the end because in 7th grade, we had a test on all Europe's countries, and one girl beat me with three points by adding Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. I added Russia and Iceland to the map but got no extra points for that. I'm still bitter.

But read the Wikipedia article about Jersey ... they appear to be much more independent visavi UK and EU than UK visavi EU
