List of Independent States and Territories of the World
As at August 1998
I've divided the World up into 13 regions. Russia is separate because it's irritatingly awkwardly positioned (I'm hoping that Siberia will secede in the near future). The West Indies are separate because they don't really qualify for North America or The Atlantic. I've also subdivided up most regions into appropriate sub-regions for easy reference. Note that the Arctic Ocean currently doesn't hold any s or Territories - Svalbard and Jan Mayen are both dependencies of Norway, not territories.
