What single state (historical or not) can you name that has been independence for the longest? First one that comes to mind is the Republic of Venice that lasted for 1100 years.

San Marino?
England?
Denmark?
Sweden?
Ethiopia?

Ethiopia or Egypt. Maybe the Papal States. Or Rome. Depends on what you count as independence.
>>
Ethiopia seems the most promising answer off the top of my head.
>>
San Marino

I'm pretty sure this thread is already up

Am I wrong, but Venice is a top example because during their entire history system of government barely changed and continuity of government never stopped?
>>
Besides 50 years under a personal union with Castille, Portugal has existed since 1139.
>>
I'm completely ignorant, but weren't the Egyptians around for a fucklong time before there was any group big enough to consider conquering them?
>>
Oman?
>>
Probably something in the middle of nowhere like Hawaii

The Roman Empire

Existing from 25BC to 1453AD

The fall of Esto Novo is a new government

Switzerland

The Roman Empire was independent for almost 1500 years.

>>282643
In what way is the USA the heir of Rome or is this a spicy meme?

Polynesian societies can't really be considered "states" in the sense that we know them. They are small-scale and based on familial and ancestral connections and are pretty much just groups of tribes who are either rivals or friends.
