'cept in 1776 there wasn't this UN or EU thing, and nobody needed to recognize anybody else's sovereignty, simply because, if a group, in an area had power, they had sovereignty. If countries like these came to be back in 1776, somebody would conquer them.
in any case, if they can be sovereign and support themselves somehow, good for them. I don't expect to see anything come of it though.
