    you mean in English, of course. I find only 2 for sure:

    1) Afghanistan.
    2) Azerbaijan.

    don't know what the status is of

    3) Ashmore and Cartier Islands.

    You are correct sir. The Azores belong to Portugal and are not a sovereign state.

    Hmmm...maybe the other two are Australiastan, and Argentinastan. I could be wrong though.

    I don't think there are four countries in the world that fit your criteria -
    there are plenty of island groups around like Azores or Andaman
    Islands, but these are all dependencies of countries (Portugal and
    India respectively). The only countries are as said before Afghanistan
    and Azerbaijan, unless a country now refers to itself as African/Aian
    Republic of Somewhere! Who challenged you to find four?
