This category, and the subcategories contained herein, are for people born in countries which went defunct during their lifetimes. Harry Turtledove has been known to changed the life expectancy of nations in his stories. E.g., in several stories set in the future, several characters are from a recently defunct United States of America. Conversely, the Ottoman Empire, which dissolved in 1923 in OTL, is still a going concern in the 21st century in some Turtledove timelines.
