What Is the Shortest-Lived Country in History?

Nations come and go. Biafra was in the news for less than three years, or its entire history. Countries that collapsed in less time are often forgotten because they drew fewer headlines, some of them born and gone in the blink of an eye, relatively. But to determine the shortest-lived country ever, you first have to define what a country is. Half as Interesting found some countries that came and went before you learned about them; the shortest depends on how you define the question. -via Laughing Squid
