Following the collapse of the Austrio-Hungarian Empire the Banat Republic was proclaimed at Timişoara on November 1st 1918.

It lasted until November 15th 1918 when it was invaded by Serbian forces. Surely one of the shortest lived countries ever. It was subsequently divided between Serbia, Romania and Hungary.

Damn - spelling mistake. If only they'd called it the Banana republic ......
