Must be largely undisputed. The most recent one as of market creation was South Sudan in 2011.
Besides states that resulted from the cia or catastrophic collapses of existing governments, I don't think any real countries have been created since 1965 or so.
For the purposes of this, is Kosovo considered as already recognized or still lacking? If so, what is the threshold for "internationally recognized"? Does it have to be recognized by every single UN member or just the entire Security Council, for example?
@vmjusto Doesn't count if it's still significantly disputed.
@IsaacKing Really, Kosovo wouldn't count for this market?
As of 4 September 2020, 101 out of 193 (52.3%) United Nations member states, 22 out of 27 (81.5%) European Union member states, 26 out of 30 (86.7%) NATO member states, and 33 out of 57 (57.9%) Organisation of Islamic Cooperation member states have recognised Kosovo.
Certainly doesn't seem to be a settled matter.
