List Criteria: Countries Nations States Obscure

School introduced us to the concept of a nation, state or country.

By most accounts, there are 196 Countries in the World.*

News organization and Hollywood films selected for us what countries need to be spotlighted, notably, the First World countries, the war-strife nations and those which cannot simply be ignored due to some reasons or the other.

Global events like beauty pageants and the Olympics further ingrain in our consciousness the names of most countries.

Yet, there are still several countries whose names are rarely mentioned in world history books, media reports or in the parade of nations.

Please add your choice to the list.

This will make us more informed and, yes, highlight these countries as well.
