My premature guess was 260.

I expect that in another 200 years there will be many more tiny nation-states participating in large co-operative federations. Imagine Catalonia, Castile, The Basque Republic, and a few other small states as the Spanish Federation within a larger European Union, just as an example.

It`s dated, but The Anamaniacs explain it better.

I don`t think the Vatican`s status as a country is disputed much despite the rather dubious founding. If you asked the Foreign Ministries/Departments of most countries. "Is the Vatican City a country?" most would say yes. Which is the point of the video.

The UK gets one UN seat and one Olympic team, but four World Cup teams.

And the Vatican is only a state because Mussolini offered statehood as a sweetener for the pope of the time not to denounce facism. It`s status is very dubious.
