Antarctica

The Antarctic Treaty System, formed on 1 December 1959 and entered into force on 23 June 1961, establishes the legal framework for the management of Antarctica and provides administration for the continent, which is carried out through consultative member meetings. It freezes the territorial claims of all signatories (all claimants have acceded) for as long as the treaty is in force. However, it is not a final settlement; parties can choose to withdraw from the System at any time. Furthermore, only a minority of states have signed it, and it is not formally sanctioned by the United Nations. Thus, Antarctica remains the only part of the planet any (non-signatory) state can still lay claim to as terra nullius (on the grounds of it not having been part of any existing state's legal and effective territory).

Outer Mongolia

When the Constitution of the Republic of China was adopted on 25 December 1947, the Republic of China did recognize the statehood of the Mongolian People's Republic with Soviet pressure. After the UN General Assembly Resolution 505 was passed in 1952, the Republic of China withdrew such a recognition in 1953 and therefore claimed Greater Mongolia including Outer Mongolia. The Constitution of the Republic of China (traditional Chinese: ; simplified Chinese: ; pinyin: ; Tongyong Pinyin: JhongHuá MínGuó SiànFǎ) is the basic governing document for the Republic of China (ROC), with jurisdiction over Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, and Matsu. ... is the 359th day of the year (360th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On 26 November 1993, the Judicial Yuan of the Republic of China in its Interpretation 328 called the constitutional territory beyond the reach of judicial review and thus avoided the question as whether Mongolia should be considered the constitutional territory of the Republic of China.[24] is the 330th day of the year (331st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The Republic of China has once again recognized the statehood of Mongolia in 2002 (but still claiming Tannu Uriankhai administered by Russia), thus freezing the territorial claim. However, the Constitution of the Republic of China does mention Mongolia in four articles: Tuva or Tyva (Russian: Республика Тыва [Тува], Respublika Tyva [Tuva]) (pop. ...
