Regardless of the politics around it, the Republic of Crimea this week was proclaimed as an independent nation for a grand total of 2 days at most (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Crimea_(country)). Are there any other countries (recognised or not) from the history books that can come close to this or even beat it?

The independence of Carpathian Ruthenia was pretty short, having lasted around 24 hours after this former eastern fringe of pre-war Czechoslovakia broke off on March 15, 1939. Depending on the source, it was formally annexed by Hungary on the next day, although complete occupation of the area was not achieved until March 18.
