Country - Achzivland
Achzivland, the official nation of Day of the Obscure, is so obscure that many countries do not even recognize its existence -- not in the diplomatic sense; they actually don't recognize Achzivland as distinct from anyplace else. But it is an independent country, as my passport attests. This is how it looked in 1993.
