List Of Sovereign States
This list of sovereign states provides an overview of sovereign states around the world, with information on their status and recognition of their sovereignty. Membership within the United Nations
United Nations
system divides the 206 listed states into three categories: 193 member states,[1] 2 observer states, and 11 other states. The sovereignty dispute column indicates states whose sovereignty is undisputed (191 states) and states whose sovereignty is disputed (15 states, out of which there are 5 member states, 1 observer state and 9 other states). Compiling a list such as this can be a difficult and controversial process, as there is no definition that is binding on all the members of the community of nations concerning the criteria for statehood. For more information on the criteria used to determine the contents of this list, please see the criteria for inclusion section below

Mount Pleasant (Tauhinukorokio[1]) is a coastal suburb of Christchurch, New Zealand. The suburb is located on the northern flank of the mountain in the Port Hills
Port Hills
of which it takes its name. The area originally belonged to the borough of Sumner. A petition in 1920 by the majority of its residents asked for it to be included as a riding of the Heathcote County. Whilst the mayor of Sumner, John Barr, submitted against the petition, it was granted and took effect on 1 April 1921.[2] As a result of the 1989 local government reforms, Heathcote County was amalgamated with and became part of Christchurch City Council.
