NOTE: Islamic State is internationally recognized as a militant/terrorist organisation, not a country. Our database itself does not distinguish between militant/terrorist organsations and countries, we therefore register powerful militant/terrorist organsations as pseudo countries for reference purposes only. We do not attempt to endorse militant/terrorist organisations and imply their legitimacy in any way.
