A true neutral country can not be part of an allience. NATO is an allience.

By that, I ment that it was allready too late

Switzerland is the number 1 one.


They have a small land force and airforce that is slowly being phased down to even smaller numbers. Also as said before they aren't even in the EU.

I have a theory...
What if...They are a race of alliens or maybe decendants of Atlantis and do not want to interfere with our race?

But on a serious side I wouldn't count Vatican as a neutral state...many wars have been fought because of the words of the pope whoever he might have been at that particular time...and if not for that the pope has considerably too much influence(behind the scenes influence) in my opinion for the Vatican to be considered neutral.

The Vatican is pretty neutral in terms of behavior but because they are the capital of Catholicism, they can't be considered neutral. A neutral state must not represent any specific alliance, ethnicity or belief system at the international scale. Switzerland, the mostly Christian (I think) doesn't exhibit this behavior internationally while the Vatican is an obvious advocate for Catholicism.
