Dependent Territory
A DEPENDENT TERRITORY, DEPENDENT AREA or DEPENDENCY is a territory that does not possess full political independence or sovereignty as a sovereign state yet remains politically outside the controlling state's integral area. A dependency is commonly distinguished from subnational entities in that they are not considered to be part of the integral territory of the governing state. A subnational entity typically represents a division of the state proper, while a dependent territory often maintains a great degree of autonomy from the controlling state. Historically, most colonies were considered to be dependencies of their controlling state. The dependencies that remain generally maintain a very high degree of political autonomy. At the same time, not all autonomous entities are considered to be dependencies, and not all dependencies are autonomous. Most inhabited dependent territories have their own ISO 3166 country codes

Territories Of The United States
TERRITORIES OF THE UNITED STATES are sub-national administrative divisions directly overseen by the United States
United States
(U.S.) federal government . Unlike U.S. states and Native tribes that have sovereignty alongside the federal government, territories are without sovereignty (according to a 2016 Supreme Court ruling called Puerto Rico v. Sanchez Valle ). The territories are classified by whether they are "incorporated" (i.e., part of the U.S. proper) and whether they have an "organized" government through an Organic Act passed by the U.S. Congress . The U.S. has sixteen territories in the Caribbean
Caribbean
Sea, the south Pacific Ocean, and the western portion of the north Pacific Ocean. Five of the territories are permanently inhabited and are classified as unincorporated territories. The other eleven are small islands, atolls, and reefs with no native or permanent population

List Of States With Limited Recognition
A number of polities have declared independence and sought diplomatic recognition from the international community as de jure sovereign states , but have not been universally recognised as such. These entities often have de facto control of their territory. A number of such entities have existed in the past. There are two traditional doctrines that provide indicia of how a de jure sovereign state comes into being. The declarative theory defines a state as a person in international law if it meets the following criteria: * a defined territory * a permanent population * a government, and * a capacity to enter into relations with other states.According to the declarative theory, an entity's statehood is independent of its recognition by other states. By contrast, the constitutive theory defines a state as a person of international law only if it is recognised as such by other states that are already a member of the international community
