An Atlas of Countries That Don't Exist

Across the globe there are places without diplomatic recognition or UN membership that function semi-autonomously and largely go unnoticed, but are nonetheless considered countries by their inhabitants. Arranged by continent, this atlas introduces 50 such states and explains how they came into being. From well-known examples such as the Isle of Man to the more obscure breakaway Moldovan region of Transnistria, it presents maps and details of their size, political status, location, population and language.
