10 NATIONS That WILL NOT EXIST in 2115 — TopTenzNet

10 Nations That Won’t Exist in 2115 10. Kiribati Home to one
of the largest protected areas in the world
(the Phoenix Islands Protected Area), Kiribati is the epitome of a tropical paradise. Independent
since 1979, Kiribati consists of a series of atolls and reefs with a smattering of little
islands perched on top. The temperatures are a pleasant low 80s, coconut and breadfruit
trees abound, and the waters are a lovely blue. If you feel like booking a vacation in Kiribati,
however, you had better make it snappy. Owing to rising sea levels, two of its islands have
already been lost to the waves (Tebua Tarawa and Abanuea), and the rest are threatened.
While a few of the islands are expected to remain above water in 2115, what is left won’t
be able to support the agriculture needed to maintain a national population. The situation is desperate enough for President
Tong to begin evacuating the islands already (a process sped up by Cyclone Pam). Official
appeals have been made to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji to accept Kiribatians as permanent
refugees. 9. The Netherlands It’s easy to imagine tropical nations disappearing
into the Pacific. What is less easily imagined is the loss of a European Nation to climate
change. Never-the-less, this is not only realistic, but in fact quite probable. Known as much
for its dikes as for being the place to go for legal drugs and prostitutes, much of the
Netherlands is below sea level. Unlike Kiribati, it is not simply rising sea
levels that threatens the Netherlands. An extremely modern nation with a powerful economy,
the Netherlands can well afford to continue expanding its dikes upwards to keep rising
seas out. The real problem is that the same dikes that can keep the sea out can keep flooding
in. With half the nation at or below one meter above sea level, the Netherlands has been
constantly fighting to keep its head above water. In 1953, A massive storm slammed into the
Netherlands and neighboring Belgium. Floods as deep as five-and-a-half meters deep swept
the southern parts of the country. Only the careful use of a ship to plug a dike prevented
the flooding of North Holland, the second most heavily populated province. With many
scientists predicting that previously “safe” Europe could soon be struck with frequent
“Hurricane Katrina” level storms, we’d book our Amsterdam holiday today if we were
you. 8. The United Kingdom What many people often tend to forget is that
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is not the Queen of England, she is the queen of the
United Kingdom. As early as Roman times attempts to unite the north and south of Britain had
failed (resulting in the building of a wall between Scotland and England) and later English
attempts had done little better. The death of Queen Elizabeth (the first one) in 1603
however led to parliament handing Scottish king James V the crown of England as well.
In 1707 the now 100 year old merger of the kingdom was formalized as “the United Kingdom
of Great Britain”. These days, however, one of the most successful
empires in history is facing a real possibility of dissolution. The union of the two kingdoms
began to show cracks as early as 1853, when advocates began calling for Home Rule. In
1934 Scottish nationalists formed the Scottish National Party, which has, of late, been a
champion of Scottish independence (and separate membership in the European Union). Referendums calling for the dissolution of
the United Kingdom have come up in Scotland roughly every 20 years since the 1970s. The
first failed on a technicality. The second was wildly popular, and finally established
the home rule that had been debated for nearly 150 years, but did not actually dissolve the
union. The most recent (2014) failed by a narrow margin, but only six months later the
SNP swept the parliamentary elections on a wave of reaction to the narrow failure of
the referendum. With 56 out of 59 seats possible and opinion polls showing growing support
for another attempt, it seems likely that the United Kingdom will be no more by 2115. 7. Canada Canada was the unhappy offspring of the Seven
Years’ War. While Great Britain and France were busy making a mess out of Europe from
1754-1763 their colonies in North America were having a pleasant, and related, brawl
of their own. The end result was the addition of New France’s fishing holes to the British
Empire. Unlike Scotland, where the two nations acted like loving newlyweds for a while, French
Canadians always approached things more like an unwelcome arranged marriage. Though becoming British in 1763 it wasn’t
until 1840 that serious attempts were made to properly un-Frenchify them. French Canada
was merged with the rest of Canada, with their main population becoming the province of Quebec.
The French didn’t think much of this idea, but went along with it, mostly out of fear
of being invaded by the expansionists in the U.S. (Reasonable, given its history with Mexico). In the post WWII world, the U.S. stopped seeming
to be the threat it had been, and the French Canadians haven’t really felt a particular
need to keep cooperating. Starting in the ‘60s a significant percentage of Quebec
has been calling for sovereignty, led by the Parti Québécois. The most recent vote on
the issue failed by only 1% of the vote. With almost a quarter of the Canadian population,
most of the Atlantic ports, and total control of the St. Lawrence waterway, the loss of
Quebec could lead the rest of Canada splitting up under pressure from regional differences
and 1st Nation sovereignty movements. 6. Taiwan Taiwan is in an interesting position. While
many people are aware of the fact that China insists Taiwan is still a part of China, what
they don’t tend to recall is that Taiwan says the exact same thing. The only real debate
between the two is which government is the legitimate one, the pre-WWII Republic of China
government seated in Taiwan or the post war People’s Republic of China in Beijing. Regardless of the politics, the fact is that,
in terms of actual operation, Taiwan is a wholly independent nation, and has acted as
such ever since Chang Kai-shek led his Kuomintang government to Taiwan in 1949. Despite its
own insistence it is not, it maintains diplomatic nations with many of the world’s nations,
it maintains its own military (purchasing heavily from trade partner America), it has
a democratically elected government that has unchallenged rule over the island. It walks
like a duck, and quacks like a duck… Still, the fact that both Taiwan and China
insist that Taiwan is just part of China goes a long way to removing the island’s nationhood.
Events over time have further eroded this position, such as the UN’s kicking Taiwan
out and giving China the empty seat in 1971. While there are some within Taiwan calling
for an official declaration of independence, the official government stance still calls
for eventual reunion with mainland China, and only 24% of the population responded favorably
to independence during a January poll. As such it is only a matter of time before Taiwan
returns to the fold. 5. North Korea Just like China and Taiwan, North and South
Korea both insist on an eventual reunion. Unlike the first two, however, there is little
doubt about how the second two will eventually work out their reintegration. China and Taiwan
are both powerful in their own right, with strong economies, powerful technological potential,
and stable governments. On the Korean Peninsula, on the other hand, such parity does not exist. North Korea, the result of the U.S.S.R. insisting
on having control over the northern half of Japan’s pre-WWII colony, is in the crapper.
Of the 193 member states of United Nations, North Korea’s per capita GDP comes in at
180th. The government runs entirely on the principle of the cult of personality, with
dictator Kim Jong-Un conducting near constant purges of the top ranks to keep things under
control. The only thing that North Korea can boast of is a strong military, and the few
high ranking defectors have spoken of coup attempts by the military that have been ruthlessly
kept out of the media. Most pundits consider it to only be a matter
of time before North Korea implodes under a weight of suspicion and backstabbing. When
that inevitable event occurs some time before 2115, South Korea will be ready to take North
Korea back into a united country and start repairing the damage done by the Kim Klan,
as happened when East Germany was reunited with the West in 1990. 4. Palestine Palestine occupies a strange position on the
family tree of nation-states today. While most of the top powers of the world do not
recognize it as a nation, more than two thirds of the UN’s member states do. Palestine
has a seat in the UN, though it does not have a vote. Its government has shockingly little
real power, as it often finds itself the subject of Israel’s wrath thanks to unilateral actions
on the part of radical groups inside its borders, but it has recognized borders, a standing
(if small) army, and a self-contained economy. Unfortunately, Palestine is the weakest kid
in a particularly bad neighborhood. Most of the country is occupied by Israel as a buffer
against terrorist groups. Jordan, sharing the other significant border with it, is a
stable nation, but has been struggling with the instability in nearby Syria and Iraq.
Jordan has been careful to be polite but standoffish in order to avoid buying even more border
trouble. Egypt has plenty of problems of its own, and Turkey and Iraq are both having big
trouble with ethnic separatists, so they are the last nations to be jumping aboard any
separatist support trains. Given the combination of Israeli hostility
and significant instability among the Arabic states close at hand, Palestine’s severe
governmental weakness is likely to result in Palestine becoming a failed state. Portions
that contain Israeli settlements will likely wind up fully annexed in spite of international
condemnation, while what remains could well wind up falling under the control of a UN
mandate, possibly regulated by Jordan. A Palestinian state is highly unlikely to exist as a national
entity in 2115. 3. Sudan South Sudan is the newest nation in the world.
It is also likely to be one of the shortest lived nations in the world. It was formed
in 2011 after a referendum for independence from Sudan passed with nearly 99% of the vote.
That, however, was the one and only time anyone seemed able to agree about anything. Externally, South Sudan can’t seem to nail
down any agreement regarding its border and trade relationship with Sudan. When it left,
it took all of Sudan’s oil fields, but Sudan retained all the infrastructure to transport
the oil away from those fields. Since then oil revenues have stagnated owing to a failure
to negotiate a profit sharing deal and both nations have had small proto-wars over how
to split up their resources. Internally, South Sudan hasn’t had any better
luck. 9 of its 10 provinces are suffering armed conflicts as various tribal and ethnic
groups fight one another, and all of them fight a government having a civil war with
itself. South Sudan is, at its heart, a microcosm of all the problems an increasingly overpopulated
world faces, and is unlikely to survive them for the next ten years, let alone long enough
to see 2115. 2. Haiti If ever there was a nation that had bad luck,
it’s Haiti. Even before its war for independence, it was a bad luck state. Consisting mostly
of slaves at its start, Haiti has always suffered from nearly every problem that’s killing
the nations already listed so far. Haiti suffered from ethnic cleansing (courtesy of neighboring
Dominican Republic in the ’30s), has constantly suffered from severe poverty and the accompanying
armed revolts, and has been the object of affection of nearly every natural disaster
and disease imaginable. Then there are the zombies. All of these problems are now being compounded
by the same climate change threatening Kiribati and the Netherlands. Hurricanes are only growing
worse as the oceans warm, and Haiti is ground zero for any hurricane that doesn’t turn
towards the East Coast of the U.S. Between that, rising sea levels, desert generating
deforestation, and earthquakes substantial portions of Haiti are at threat of one mass
destruction too many. Seemingly doomed from the beginning, it is
perfectly reasonable for Haiti itself to become a zombie-like creature, not really alive,
but not really dead. Unable to recover from disasters economic and natural, Haiti may
well eventually resort to turning itself over to the UN or a better behaved Dominican Republic
out of a desperate hope that they may be able to keep something in that half of the island
alive in 2115. 1. Sealand Sealand is a nation that has no chance of
seeing 2115, as it never really was a nation to begin with. When Germany demanded a rematch
with England, the embattled nation came up with some truly strange military ideas to
bring to the fight. Most of them never saw the light of day, but one that did was HM
Fort Roughs. Essentially two concrete pylons sunk into the English Channel six miles offshore,
the UK built a platform holding anti-aircraft guns to shoot down German bombers on the way
to the Blitz. After the war, the guns were removed and the
platform abandoned. In 1967 eccentric Paddy Bates took over the platform for use in pirate
radio. After an argument over a buoy led to the platform being raided by Her Majesty’s
Marines and the arrest of Paddy, the British courts declared that, as the platform was
three miles outside of the three mile limit, Britain had no control over the platform.
Paddy immediately took advantage of this and declared the creation of the Principality
of Sealand, with himself the reigning prince. After a dispute with “Prime Minister”
Alexander Achenbach led to the invasion of the platform by hired mercenaries, heir (and
current reigning prince) Michael Bates led a commando raid (consisting of himself, a
family friend, and a rented helicopter) to reclaim Sealand. Achenbach and his mercenaries
(all German citizens) were captured, and only released after Germany sent an ambassador
to negotiate their release. Owing to the British court decision and the
German ambassadorial mission, the Bates family has continued to maintain Sealand as an independent
“micro-nation.” However, without some serious intervention by both politicians and
engineers, Sealand won’t see 2115. In 1987 the United Nations Convention on the Law of
the Sea extended all national sea borders from 3 miles out to 12 miles out, resulting
in Saeland now falling inside of British waters. At the same time, it specifically ruled that
artificial islands and structures cannot be recognized as establishing a territorial claim.
Though Britain has yet to act on this, that rule means that the U.K. can reclaim the platform
at any time, and the rest of the world will simply shrug. It may, however, be a moot point.
Recent research has shown that the global conditions created by climate change will
be far more destructive to concrete and iron. As such, it is likely the already somewhat
rotten structure may quickly become untenable. It is likely that long before 2115, Sealand
will become sea floor.

  2. Easy to prédict à hundred years in advance. Thé SNP did not lose narrowly in 2014. Ten percent is not à narrow majority. And indépendence within thé EU is not possible.

  3. Trash info, only 3.5 years after, the real situation proves how wrong you are about Taiwan. Over 90% of the people here says we are not part of China, we will be here as a proud independent state forever.

  4. White people always know the future

    But don't know the white race will be extinct long before this time

  5. You just have to look at the mess of Brexit and Boris as prime minister to know the end of the UK's union is coming.

  6. Canada will still be a united country in 2115. Quebec will not break away, anymore than the North and South broke up in the 1860's US; not all Quebecois are Separatists, and we avoided the Civil War that America could not. French is one of Canada's two official languages and has been afforded an equal amount of importance (just look at Canadian labels) as the English language. There are problems, yes. – Will they be settled in an equitably fashion ? – Yes!

  7. Never heard of two nations…. Kiribati, Sealand. Shocking to note that Netherlands, United Kingdom, Canada, Taiwan, North Korea, Palestine , Sudan and Haiti will cease to exist. Can't imagine the world with UK, Canada and Netherlands.

    Surprisingly , I was looking forward to seeing Pakistan in this list but how is it that you have not missed this country which is a failed state and totally bankrupt.

  8. I am surprised that you have not included the USA in this. Given the increasing hostility between republican states and democratic ones a second civil war is quite plausible.

  9. So you can tell the future? There are so many variables involved in this. Some of the nations you mentioned have gone through tougher times than they are going through now and have survived for centuries. Telling the future is a fools game. I wish you could be around in 2115 to see how wrong you were.

  10. USA is going the way of the former USSR, Canada is also going to break up I suggest a North American Union of the former states and provinces along with Mexico (whole or states) similar to the European Union. As sovereign nations the former states blue & red will no longer be at each others throats.

  11. I don't think Taiwan and Hong Kong will rejoin China in reality unless invaded by China, and if that happens the USA is bound to respond via alliances.

  12. Brexit will end the UK. If the disgusting tory fascists manage to bring such an idiotic and self-serving move to full fruition this nation will tear itself apart and we'll lose a massive part of our workforce especially in businesses which have little appeal.

  13. Hopefully every nation except for mine will be destroyed and your daughters and sons will be our slaves for eternity🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱

  14. I am a french canadian…and can tell Canada wont suffer much if Quebec split off of it…Quebec nation in the other hand will lose and certainly will become a banana republica with the sneaky dictature of parti quebecois.

  15. A dived nations will fall in the 4 wineds and missiles and the wipions of mass destruction the spirit and wear fight in the spirit can track down a nations that trust in the man made wipions and the canacel of the congressmen and not rely on the spirit to giled him and stay a,way form the in godley and don't have 7 wixes or be dissoneast witch the people wagers and feed the poor win you have the mines to do so much for the poor it get back to you later on in the Times you nead livhet up

  16. You forgot to mention Belgium, which has been close to splitting between the Flemish and Walloon sides for some time now.

    Not to mention that in 100 years, any nation could split; even the USA could see further cracks form by 2115!

  17. You totally forgot the Maldives… the highest point of that country is only 3M above the sea level.
    Pakistan may not survive either … too much ethnic tensions n provinces like Baluchistan, Sind n Paktoonkwa constantly uprise for independence.

  18. Yo forgot to mention France , Germany , England and many more european countries , which were invaded by muslims ! Do you think , than, when those countries will be overflowed by invaders they will still keep the same names for those countries ??? I dont think so !!!the will be renamed some muslim names !!!

  19. Number One on your list should be the USA which is drowning under a sea of guns, ignorance and racism. It is becoming so divided against itself it cannot last long.

  20. I don’t think Canada will ever disappear. I have family in Quebec and I see the separatist movement is dead. This is due to making the French have more priority than English and in spite of that, most Quebecer are bilingual or want to be. Secondly, Brexit happened to be very bad for England and with a neighbour like the USA. they need to be together to tell the US f- off. Thirdly, with a president like the groper Donald Trump, the US can make a mess of a lone country, just like the EU and the US will make a mess of the UK if they don’t wise up and re-join the EU.

  21. America Mr Trump is going to kill us all. His climate policy will lead to his next brainstorm . Americans swim or die!!!

  22. its there you worng, the Quebec wont to leave the Canadian confederation, that was like that he have long time but now in our day its totaly diffrent but you can't understand that cuz you dont leave on the province (i know that cuz im from Quebec) also, United-States will never let Canada die <-< … CAN and USA its like a sweet CUTE! teenager relation ship :3

  23. You forgot the United States!! I will give it 50 years the most before California and all the south gain independence. Either that or a civil war 2 happens.

  24. Because 1,5 babie per woman and migrations of 200 millions africans and other muslims, all europeans countries will disappear before 2060 as amerindians territories.

  25. Taiwan (number 1) will be fine. I have been been living here for 3 years but the people whose land this is have been living here for at least 5000 years and are also the trunk of the Austronesian language family tree. The people's of Hawaii and Maori of New Zealand can trace there heritage back to these people. They are the indigenous people of Taiwan. In 2017 Taiwan announced a transition of 1.8 million hectares of public owned land back to the indigenous communities. This obviously has some friction involved due to land used by corporations for such things as mining not being part of the deal. Anyway, this does throw a slight spanner in the works as there is a people with greater claim and growing recognition with more title to the land than China or even the Taiwan government. And it is a claim which cannot truthfully be denied. The question is, how valuable is truth as a card on the big table?

  26. All countries are here forever. If the world ended today, people will shift either to heaven or to hell. Make a choice today where you want to be. Accept the LordJesus as your Lord and Saviour.

  27. Canada will not disappear…in fact, Canada will become bigger and Greater in 2115. I'll make sure that it is running smoothly even as a 152-year-old man.

  28. Canada will merge with the United States. Taiwan will fold to China. North Korea will merge with South Korea. However all the Middle Eastern states including Israel will reach an agreement with each other to form a Palestine country.

  29. The Philippines should be on this list. It's only a matter of time until El Presidente gives my country to China, all gift wrapped and ready to go.

  30. Great video Simon but the way I look at it with the UN constantly interfering with European countries’ sovereignties and their border security unfortunately I can see what countries aren’t being wiped out by climate change being overrun and destroyed by legal immigrants with the help of stupid national governments.

  31. And America don't forget about America her sins will definitely get her destroy as a matter of fact the whole West

  32. "book your holiday today" nigga do you think any of us are going to be alive in 2115? we're all gonna live to 135 years old?

  33. the most interesting case wasn't mentioned: USA
    Understandable as the probabilities here are to be considered a matter of opinion, at least at the moment. Besides already existing seperatist movement, most prominently the rising economic disparities combined with plutocratic rule and political corruption across the board, one migth conclude, that the propability of the united states surviving the next century is quite slim.

  34. I think Phillipines.. Ahaha because slowly but surely China take over the Philippines.. They take West Phillipine sea and then lots of Chinese go to the Philippines.. There buying a lots of property there… And lots of products change became Chinese products.. And lots of restaurants.. Some Chinese restaurants there not letting Filipinos enter. For Chinese only.. And that's insane.. There in the Philippine territory but they not letting Filipinos to enter?!!?.. Right??

  35. STATES not here by then…..Louisiana. Sadly, due to our bad levees and rising sea levels….we are loosing a bit of land year by year due to sea level and storms.

  36. Do more research on Nigeria, it may soon seize to exist as a result of political differences, religion and ethnicity between the Northern and Southern Nigeria which were amalgamated by Lord Lugard in 1914, by the Great Britain, colonial heist.

  37. Have you any idea at all how old Israel is, it's over 4000 years old. Your demonising of Israel in your report is terrible, you obviously get your news of the BBC. You would be welcome in the ranks of Hamas with Abbas, Israel does not occupy that land they OWN all of that land, the deeds to it are written in the Holy Bible, but you are heathen right, you recently said if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck , well do these terrorists not look like terrorist and kill like terrorists, no they don't mean no harm their just oppressed right, then why are they all dressed like ninja's then, get a grip ! people like you are one reason why Britain is on a path to becoming an Islamic Republic. And why Israel is constantly under attack.

  38. A lot has changed in the Netherlands since the 'watersnoodramp' in 1940 something. We now have spaces in land to store huge amounts of water during flooding. Also the Deltawerken have been installed to like let us control the water near the shore in some way. There are even plans to create a new 13th province in the North sea. We are Dutch, the sea doesn't take our land, we take land from the sea.
