PhD in Education. I've been sharing all kind of content/information on the Internet for 14+ years now. I try to do it in the most straightforward and reliable way possible, cross-referencing information with the primary sources of authority in each field (unless unnecessary). You can reach out to me in the comments. I read all your inquiries and typically respond to most of them daily. If you find what I do helpful, you can support me here. 🙂

  1. What about Taiwan? Taiwan is an island recognized by international law as a sovereign state, meeting the criteria of having a permanent population, defined territory, an independent government, and the ability to engage with other sovereign states. It’s acknowledged that Taiwan faces pressure from the Chinese government; however, it maintains its distinct political parties and ideologies. Taiwanese citizens exercise their right to vote for their president, establishing Taiwan as a democratic nation, in contrast to China, which operates under a communist system. With a population exceeding 23.57 million people and its own diplomatic alliances, Taiwan stands as a distinct entity. Hence, my question remains: why is Taiwan not included on this list?

    • Mainly because Taiwan is NOT an UN member and its international recognition is disputed with China.

      All the countries of the list are UN members with the exception of the Vatican City, and only cause they decided not to be one (they’re currently an observer state). Their sovereignty and recognition is full though.

      Hope this answer helped to understand why I didn’t include it (yet).

  2. Wonderful alphabetical list of European Countries & Capitals. Thank you. FYI, my I add that France & Paris are listed in the incorrect place (I.e. Paris, France). M.
