The Republic of West Florida was an example of a short lived country. It was proclaimed on September 23rd 1810 (against strong opposition from US President Madison) and lasted only until the United States seized its capital St Francisville on December 6th 1810. Its President was Fulwar Skipwith who had negotiated the Louisiana Purchase for the US from France.

Sounds like a refugee from one of the lesser known civilisations of the northern galactic rim, doesn't it?
