    Re Ukraine: Many people wondering if Map Men are legitimising the Russian annexation of Crimea at 2:39. We are not. We had intended to make Crimea a different colour, as a way of saying 'look, sticky outy bit that's also currently disputed', but we just forgot to do it. We are sorry. This NLcameras account is not, actually, a Kremlin propaganda bot.

      @thePRUH!!!! No, not every place on earth. It needs to be self governed. For instance each providence in Canada is not its own state as they are ultimately beholden to the Canadian government. A US state is not. The most the american federal government can do to a state that refuses to comply with a federal law is withhold a level of federal funding based on the law. The USA is just a union, same as the EU. Are those nations no longer countries now that they are a part of the EU? The US is older and more centralized but its still a union of individual and self governed bodies. many states in the US even have their own militaries or the structure to form their own militaries distinct from any federal command structure.

      Then every place on Earth is called a geological state according to that logic. If the US were to be comprised of countries, why is it called the USA and not the UCA. A specific school of thought isn't always applicable to every situation. You can even categorize countries into continents and call Russia a State both in Europe and Asia, meaning it exists as a Eurasian state, not a "country." Or instead of categorizing them into huge blobs, you can apply the country-state thought inside countries, for example, Germany. Germany has 16 Bundesländer, or you might know as federal states, which means that Germany is made up of 16 smaller countries and even weirder enough putting Brandenburg and Berlin in the same category as "federal states" or "countries" as you might imply using your school of thought. Another example would be the Commonwealth of Australia, country, state, continent, commonwealth, and whatever else. The only continent with multiple states under one country or it could be like any other continent with multiple countries in it. This is the same as the age-old debate whether if light is a particle or wave. Both are correct because they have their own applications and circumstances. Newton believed that light is a particle because of the frequency-like properties it had in the Prism Experiment and Christopher Huygens along with Francesco Maria Grimaldi believed that light is a wave because of its diffractive properties. As a particle, it explains why it breaks into colours in a prism, because its particles oscillate at different wavelengths but it can't explain why light can "bend" through objects. This can be explained by light as a wave because it diffracts on the object thereof, but it can't explain why there are different wavelengths in the colour spectrum.

      @Seikh Sawan I'm not sure how every nation that refutes refers to them as states handles them but that is historically and into the modern area the case. You would be hard pressed to find the difference between a state and a country. They are often interchangeable. With the only difference is most but not all fall under a large union or did at one point. For instance Germany and Italy are examples of countries referred to as European states. Members of the EU are called member states in the same way the states under the American union are. Like wise every member of the UN is a UN state. Are you going to try and say they aren't countries?

      @Jay Foreman Country a nation with its own government, occupying a particular territory. Nation a large body of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory. States are indeed their own countries inside a union. They are all independently governed and while they are expected to follow decisions of the federal government they do not have to. This is why states like CO were able to threaten the federal government with a suit when they tried to enforce federal drug laws after the state legalized pot.
