Duties of States and the Montevideo Convention on the Right sets down the criteria for statehood in international law in article 1:
“The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications:
(a) a permanent population;
(b) a defined territory;
(c) government;
and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.”

“Patriotism is
supporting your country all the time,
and your government when it deserves it.”

— Mark Twain
