What are the newest countries in the world?
I knew that many countries were formed from the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s (I remember that happening when I was in college). But I was curious what other nations have come into existence since then? It turns out that there are quite a few, with South Sudan being the newest at 2011.

When will the next countries be born?
