So I´ve found this: https://www.quora.com/What-are-likel...me-independent, and I thought this was interesting.

In your opinion, what are the states that have more possibilities (or deserve more) to become a country? And what are the most interesting? For example, one of the most interestings for me was Kalmykia I had no idea there was a region in the Caucasus (Western Russia) with kind of a mongol culture and buddhism as primary religion! Share your thoughts.

I don't think they mentioned Atzlan, which is a movement by some Hispanic Americans to turn land taken away from Mexico in the 1800s into a Hispanic dominant independent country. It's equally unlikely as the South (old confederacy) becoming independent.


I always remembered seeing "Western Sahara occupied by Morocco" on world atlases but didn't know much about it until I found this video done by Vice News.

Moluccas and Papua, hold the highest % of Christians in Indonesia, located far away from the core of the country.

That list is weird. Veneto isn't anywhere close to leave Italy and there is no way that they are better organized than the separatists in South Tyrol.

I agree about Veneto, but they have the best flag ever!

Some of the information on the Quebec independence movement is either out of date or inaccurate.
