comment Which 11 countries were democratic in 1941?
@hawbsl You need to tell what is the broadcaster's prespective of democracy, prima facie, there seems to be more than 11 democracies even before 1941 based on purely technical considerations.

@ExpatEgghead That is precisely the issue. As Rory points out, there are difficulties in defining democracy and thus it now hinders upon the OP to clear his view of democracy.

@lins314159 Thanks! I am removing their inclusion for now, until I get further clarity. Also, here is the qualification on the link itself The three Baltic states were parliamentary republics after declaring their independence from the Russian Empire in 1918, but were all occupied by the Soviet Union in 1940. After regaining independence by 1991, all three countries resumed to parliamentary democracy.
