Actually there's a lot of new countries in the last twenty years. I was gonna list them but the list was turning out to be huge. Most were formed with the collapse of the soviet union and the rest were usually parts of other nations that collapsed. A few were left overs of British colonialism as well.
A couple notable ones are Iraq and Kuwait. One had it's government defeated and rebuilt and the other gained it's independence when that happened.
About this newest one I'm honestly skeptical. I'm glad they gained their freedom but how are they gonna make it work? The people are mostly dirt poor and the country barely has any infrastructure. I think it will end up like Somalia, lawless cesspool with the good people fleeing.
That's a good example of a bad decision to split. Maybe a hundred years later would've been different but at the time the south really didn't have much of a chance. Even if the war never happened and they just split it's not like the confederacy could've thrived without the union states.
True, both the Confederacy and Union needed one another, the Confederate states needed raw materials from the Union states, and the Union states needed manufactured goods from the Confederate states, or maybe it was the other way around. Either way, neither was able to function properly alone.
