Some of you may know that there is a growing independence movement in California. Let me first say THIS IS NOT A THREAD ABOUT THE CHANCES OF CALIFORNIA GAINING INDEPENDENCE. This is a question for non Americans in other parts of the world to weigh in on whether or not their country and/or neighboring countries would recognized California if it tried to break free.

Really, You can't get much more American in the world's eyes. ( no question mark) then California. Would never happen. From someone who says "never say never". Nor with Texas either.

Within the US, California is the most distinct of the continental US and to some Americans, is the least like the other continental states.

My question however was; what's the likelihood of other countries recognizing it?

Probably will not recognize:
NATO + Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Austria, South Korea, Japan, Australia, New Zealand.

Probably will recognize:
Non-NATO Countries.

I think most countries would recognize it, it already carries its own weight/influence around the world.

Two quite contrasting responses, interesting. Davy and Rosa, care to elaborate?

You're dreaming, OP. Also, I think we can't take California's self-sufficiency for granted, given the long drought, which may not be over, merely on hold for a year. It's worrisome.

I don't see why not, provided it's all done with the correct legal process.
