There are currently 142 U.N. members in FIDE. The FIDE rules are that no new members are allowed if they are not U.N. members. Note that its names for Macedonia and the Republic of Korea (South Korea) do not collate in a modern fashion.
Burundi, Côte d'Ivoire, and Ghana have been temporarily suspended from membership in FIDE because of their failure to meet their financial obligations. Their memberships will be permanently revoked at the meeting in Turin, Italy on May 27, 2006 if they have not paid their dues by that time.
