    Spoiled a nation

     
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Suvadive_Republic
    The Suvadive secession occurred within the context of the struggle of the Maldives' emergence as a modern nation still shackled by feudal and autocratic structures. The alleged causes were the centralistic policies of the Maldivian government and the recent independence of its neighbors India and Ceylon.

    The Suvadives declared independence on January 3, 1959. They capitulated, rejoining the rest of the nation, on September 23, 1963.
