Check out Gideon Defoe's "An Atlas of extinct countries" to see the full list of 48 states that once existed, and are no more, he has great dry satirical humor and gotta say, props to you Mr. Defoe! (Thanks Geograpeep Jay for sending this for Fan Friday!) What extinct countries do YOU know of?

Quick fact: The 3 Southern most atolls of Maldives (Addu, Huvadhu and Fuvammulah) separated from the Maldives and created their own country with the help of the British, called United Suvadive Republic, though it didn't last long because the Prime Minister of Maldives then stormed on one of the capitals in USR and shot a bunch of people.

Oddly, this filler show harkens back to the old-school episodes of Geography Now, where the setting was simple, the graphics were easy on the eyes, and there was only ONE person hosting the show. I enjoyed this more than the current episodes of Geography Now, which has become a bloated music video hosted by an army of casting extras from the United Colors of Benetton.

What about Sudetenland? Founded after WWI by the German population in Czechoslovakia and absorbed into Germany at the very beginning of WWII. Actually one of the few places Hitler won over through negotiations rather than bloodshed. My great-grandfather fled from Sudetenland during the war, so I'm missing some representation here.

there also was a place known as The Republic of North Ingria. It was a small country that was located close in southern karelia. It lasted from 1919 to 1920. Its people are/were known as ingrian finns. It was originally supposed to have autonomy under finland like Åland but it got annexed by the Bolsheviks soon after independence. Most of the Ingrian finns got deported to siberia and now there are only a small number of Ingrians left. You should make a mini video about it or make a extinct countries part 2
