Almost all NOCs represent independent national states but the IOC also acknowledges a number of NOCs from independent territories, protectorates and special geographical areas. An example of this are the former republics of the Soviet Union, which participated under the name of EUN - the Unified Team - in the Barcelona 1992 summer games.
