I recently met a time traveller from a distant hypothetical future, and we had an interesting discussion about the geographies of our respective worlds. It turns out that the 19999 world map is pretty similar to what it is now, but there are a few changes. Here are the descriptions of some sovereign states from that future.

- Part of a "federation", my people actually desired independence for a long time. We already voted in favour of it twenty years ago. We are a small island nation, which is not uncommon in this part of the world.
- I'm the third-largest country in North America, slightly larger than Mexico. I was ruled by Europeans for even longer than other countries on our continent.
- Colonialists split our island in half, and it took us a long time to unify our nation. Our population is far from homogenous – in some ways we are as diverse as any country in the world.
- While nominally a "republic", our country has been ruled by foreigners since forever. We fought two wars for our independence, and even after that it took decades to achieve it. It is not easy to be a small country in the shadow of a giant.
