Partially unrecognized names of fully recognized states

  •  Myanmar's military junta changed its English name from Burma to Myanmar in 1989. The renaming proved to be a political issue after the Burmese opposition refused to recognize the new name.[11] Although the United Nations have recognized the name Myanmar some Western governments still continue to use Burma, namely those of the United States, Australia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom, with the U.S. stating that: Due to consistent, unyielding support for the democratically elected leaders, the U.S. government likewise uses "Burma".[12] The European Union, meanwhile, use "Burma/Myanmar" as an compromise.[13] Myanmar has been frustrated by the insistance of some governments to call the country Burma and has lashed out during a recent ASEAN meeting.[14] The use of "Burma" and its adjective "Burmese" remains common in the United States and Britain. News organisations, such as the BBC, Wall Street Journal, and The Financial Times, still use these forms.[15][16] CNN, The Economist, and The New York Times use "Myanmar" as the country name and "Burmese" as the adjective.

The Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic claims to control a strip behind the Moroccan Wall of defense which it labels the Free Zone. It is recognized by 45 states, and is a full member of the African Union. It is however not recognized by the Arab League or by the UN or any other international organization. The SADR government is seated in the refugee camps of Tindouf, Algeria. Sovereignty over Western Sahara is unresolved.

Western Sahara has been on the United Nations list of Non-Self-Governing Territories since the 1960's.
