1/2. Breakaway states have their own borders, money and presidents - but some are also home to terrorists, weapons and armies itching for a fight. Welcome to places that aren't officially recognised by the international community. First on Simon Reeve's tour are Somaliland, Transdneistria in the Black Sea region and Taiwan.
