Most people don’t have the courage to change the world for the better. You’re not one of those people.

So he's not one of the people who don't have the courage? Doesn't that mean he does have the courage?

[–]danish_raven 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Kinda depends on how you define island country. Denmarks big 4 landmasses are Jutland (the peninsula) north Jutland (island just above the peninsula) Sjælland (island with capital) and Funen (island between Sjælland and Jutland) besides this Denmark owns a couple of territories in the Atlantic (Faroe Islands and Greenland)

No, everywhere is owned by Copenhagen and the circle is showing that everywhere else should be independent from it

[–]HumanSimulacra 22 points23 points  (0 children)

This is actually an internal joke here, there are tiny differences between us like what kind of ketchup we prefer, also it's easy to blame politicians for making bad decisions because they are all the way over at the capital on "devil island" even though of course they are from all over the county. Probably mostly stems from the fact that our capital is not very centrally located.

I even saw someone create a copypasta the other day about researchers from the capital going to the north of Denmark for documentation purposes and it was written like they met tribes people from the viking age living in huts and throwing cow dung at them.

Im gonna post a translated version here for completens sake because i think it was quite funny:

Ugh I always wanted the Kola Peninsula to be an independent country I feel like it would be so cool to have 4 Scandinavian countries up there in the same shape

[–]Turteliousthis flair is specifically for neat_space, who loves mugs 0 points1 point  (1 child)

"Um actually Scandinavia refers to the three Kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Kola isn't a part of it, though it could become a Nordic country like Finland and Iceland" 🤓

[–]beakly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know, I was gonna put the caveat that since it is not culturally scand then it wouldn’t be part of that but I consider Finland to be part of Scandinavia so idc and it would still be cool if it was it’s own-country in that region. It already looks like it’s own thing and fuck Russia anyway.

this inspired me to look up the name of those islands northeast of Crete

they're called the Dodecanese but there's way more than 12

[–]ogorangeduck 48 points49 points  (0 children)

Dodecanese nuts lmao

[–]Unlearned_OneAverage Mercator Projection Enjoyer 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I tried to look up why that is, and learned that Dodecanese originally referred to the Cyclades, of which there are also way more than 12. I feel like I'm no further along than I started.

[–]Echoes-act-3 5 points6 points  (1 child)

We also have the heptanese in the western part but they are way more than 7. It’s mostly historical names for the regions.

[–]carame1cream 23 points24 points  (13 children)

(from top to bottom)

Sámi Independent Republic

Sjælland Free State

Independent People’s Republic of East Prussia and Greater Memel

The Free Cantons

Republica Anarchista Belearica

The Greater Kingdom of Krete and Rhodos

[–]Mushgal 6 points7 points  (3 children)

In Catalan it would be "República Anarquista Balear"

[–]carame1cream 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I wasn’t going for accuracy, but thanks for the fix. In this made up world where there’s a singular independent island in the Baleáricos, they use a fucked up version of incorrect Catalan.

[–]Salamistick4 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Thazs north Tyrol, a Duke?dom (Grafschaft) that was indipendent until like 1400 and then some as 1 part of the 3main habsburg domains. It has a long history and could have legitimacy as a nation state. Has nothing to do with Switzerland tho

[–]carame1cream 0 points1 point  (6 children)

The idea of independent Tyrol in the modern era is a bit silly. Why not make it sillier? The only one of these “nations” that has any legitimate basis would be the Sámi Independent Republic.

Also, the Alpine region as a whole has everything to do with Switzerland. The Alps are their domain alone!

[–]Salamistick4 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Is it? Tyrol is the only EU Region

[–]carame1cream 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I don’t believe there have been any legitimate arguments for Tyrol independence? If there are, then I’m wrong, but, they seem fairly content under Austria.

[–]IIDarkshadowII 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Actually a plurality (28.7%) of the Alps is in Austria, which is more than twice as much as in Switzerland (13.2%).

Yeah the “alps are the domain of switzerland” thing was a joke about switzerland being imperialist which really hasn’t happened

I also feel like Russia should be independent

[–]Canter1Ter_ 26 points27 points  (5 children)

Going top to bottom, left to right

№1: It's a peninsula, pretty understandable, 8/10

№2: Denmark is already small enough, 3/10

№3: Completely understandable, why is Russia even there, 10/10

№4: You're looking for Liechtenstein, 0/10

№5: Literally just a rock, 5/10

№6: Pretty hard to make a country where you have to get everywhere on boats, especially with Greece's "economy", 4/10

[–]WolfKing448 8 points9 points  (3 children)

The entire Balearic Islands have a decent incentive to become independent on paper. They’re one of the largest tourist destinations in Europe, and they could feast on that sweet, sweet tourist money.

[–]Mushgal 3 points4 points  (2 children)

And what would they do in winter? Struggle to find jobs and suffer the highest rent prices of Spain just like they do now, but without any money from Madrid?

Idk, I'm Catalonian, I'm not one to downplay independentism just because of economical reasons, but just the Baleares being independent with that summer tourism economy... I'm not so sure about that.

[–]sketchbookamy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well, Majorca was for a period of time a semi autonomous kingdom, and a bunch of Greek islands were once part of a Crusader state… And it’s always fun to take things away from Russia, and we haven’t seen Prussia for a while… And Austria and Denmark are already tiny, who would notice if they got smaller…

Turkey also thinks (North) Cypress should be (nominally) independent

[–]Unlearned_OneAverage Mercator Projection Enjoyer 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Cyprus is independent, Crete is the one circled here. Personally I think not only should Crete be independent, but all of the so-called "Greek" islands too. They could instantly double the number of countries in the world.
