Top 10 Aspiring Nations

According to Time magazine, the followings are the countries with most possibilities to become independent States:

1. Scotland
2. The Basque Country
3. Tibet
4. South Ossetia
5. Kurdistan
6. Quebec
7. Western Sahara
8. The Republic of Cascadia
9. Padania
10. Second Vermont Republic

We are not very sure if number 8 and 10 are just jokes or Time reflects the historical American ignorance about the world - not mentioning, among others, Tirol or Catalonia. As someone said "War is the tool God uses to teach Geography to Americans".
