It's amazing to consider that despite national boundaries that classify it as Spain, Catalonia insists that they are a separate Mediterranean country. Around the world, similar situations ensue as certain ethnic groups push for independence for one reason or another. It is my belief that in the future there will be a much greater number of countries than there are today as this trend continues. For the Catalonians, it will be a difficult struggle for independence but perhaps they will achieve it someday.
