KFC returns to original supplier after chicken shortage fiascoSouth Africa is the only country in the world that has three capital cities, while 12 countries have two. But two countries have no official capital city. Can you guess which ones? Let me first quickly go through the countries with two capitals. Conflict arises when we move to — surprise, surprise — the Middle East. And just to make matters worse, the two countries in questions even claim to have the same capital. I am, of course speaking of — in alphabetical order — Israel and Palestine. Both claim Jerusalem as their capital and many locals from both countries will get visibly upset, sometimes even turn agitated, furious or even violent if you suggest otherwise. Jerusalem is not internationally recognized as the capital of either country, Ramallah functions as the capital for Palestine whereas Tel Aviv more or less does the job for Israel. Let me add that I find both cities surprisingly pleasant when it comes to restaurants, nightlife, coffee culture and hospitality. Unfortunately an official two-state solution that both countries can live with seems to be rather unlikely, or in a distant future. Three capitals in one country South Africa still leads the pack with three capitals, the most famous of which is Pretoria, as the seat of the executive branch of government. Wonderful Cape Town is the legislative capital, whereas Bloemfontein — which I have unfortunately never visited — is the judicial one. Why such a confusing setup? Well, it started with conflict when the union of South Africa was created, and ended with compromise. And perhaps not a bad one, as the solution corresponds well with the balance of powers, or checks and balances. Early leaders in the country agreed that the entire government in one place would give that location too much power and be prone to lobbying and corruption. Some irony then, that the president of South Africa is Jacob Zuma, a name practically synonym to corruption, mismanagement and incompetence. Less than 10, people live on the island virtually on the Equator in the Pacific. Capitalless country number two may come as more of a shock. We are, after all, speaking of the country that defines neutrality more than any other, in part thanks to peace building operations around the world and a home to more international organization than any other. Come on, how about Bern? Your teacher might have told you to memorize that as the Swiss capital city. And some will say he or she was right, but not quite. Federal courts are also placed in other cities.

LIST OF COUNTRIES WITH KFC FRANCHISES
Countries like Cambodia still have yet to gain their own McDonald's franchise, but other American fast food chains, like KFC, have done well here. Recent news out of Vietnam intrigued us here at The Salt. Ho Chi Minh City is set to get its first McDonald's sometime in the next year, according to the company. It seems Vietnam is ready for the iconic American food, and McDonald's is confident that Vietnamese consumers now have enough disposable income to get hooked on shakes, burgers and fries. McDonald's may seem to be everywhere, but there are still countries without the fast food giant, from Ghana to Jamaica to Yemen to Tajikistan. And in six countries, McDonald's once had a presence, but due to economics, and sometimes politics, the franchises closed. Still, Jack Russoa consumer goods policy analyst with the financial services firm Edward Jones, tells The Salt that McDonald's is well-represented overseas. The company has 34, restaurants in countries, including Cuba and France, where it's especially beloved, even by foreigners. You won't find a Big Mac if you visit the Vatican City. And if you are one of the rare foreigners to make it inside North Korea, you won't find one there, either. Miguel Centeno is a sociologist at Princeton University. He was part of a team that created maps to track globalization; one of them is called "The Fries That Bind Us," a colorful look at McDonald's and its reach worldwide. It also sometimes maps onto politics. One of the most recent closures this May was in Macedonia after disputes between a franchisee and the American headquarters. And in the case of Boliviathe government said they'd rather not have fries with that inwhen all McDonald's franchises there were closed. Just listen to Bolivian President Evo Morales talk about his lack of love for fast food, and you might begin to understand. He recently railed against Western fast food chains during a speech in February:. The only goal of such producers is to generate profits. So they standardize food and drinks, turning them into global foods produced on a massive scale with the same formula. They are not interested in the health of human beings, only in their earnings and corporate profits. Here are a few countries out of the in the world where you won't find McDonald's fries or burgers. Most Bolivians, as far as I can tell, love burgers and fries. In the isolated island nation of Icelandtheir McDonald's departure had more to do with economics. Jon Gardar Ogmundsson owned what was one of only three McDonald's restaurants in the country for about six years before he had to shut his doors after 18 months of financial struggle in People stopped buying burgers at his McDonald's franchise. But the financial crisis didn't keep him out of the burger game. Now, he owns a locally sourced "green line" fast food restaurant called Metro. And, Ogmundsson says, with his newfound ability to price his products as he chooses, and offer more health-conscious meals for discerning Icelanders, Metro "is actually doing quite well.
