Abkhazia – No Country for Old Men?

Next stop is a country which isn't recognized by the UN, but it does start the list alphabetically.  Abkhazia is a region in Georgia which with the help of russia has claimed autonomy.  But no real countries will recognize their independence.  The biggest problem for the 250k citizens is getting a passport.  But currently most have a neutral one or a russian one.

Fun Fact:

The world's deepest known cave, Krubera (Voronja) Cave ("The Crows' Cave"), is located in Abkhazia's western Caucasus mountains. The latest survey (as of September 2006) has measured the vertical extent of this cave system as 2,158 meters (7,080 ft) between its highest and lowest explored points
