A handful in Asia and the Middle East at most (for example, North Korea), and perhaps one or two in Oceania. It is likely that some cases an independent country (such as Bhutan) may send its report in as part of another country (such as India), as took place in beginning 1978, according to the 1979 Yearbook:

Reports have been received from 205 lands and islands of the sea. The decrease in the total number of countries lies in the fact that reports from several of them are now combined with those of other branches. For example, last year such places as Manus Island, New Britain, New Guinea, New Ireland and the North Solomons were listed separately. This year they are all included in the report from Papua New Guinea since they now form one country. Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharja are shown now as United Arab Emirates. Bequia, Carriacou and Tobago are now part of St. Vincent, Grenada and Trinidad respectively. And Bhutan now reports with India.
