#1 From Wikipedia: "Unlike the secessionist region of Somaliland to its west, Puntland is not trying to obtain international recognition as a separate nation."

Puntland is an interesting place. It seems like they've decided that it's not worth the hassle to declare yourself an independent country when you can simply *be* one de-facto, and put all of the structures in place. Smart.
