From 1809 to 1981 Denmark was at war with Huéscar, but people apparently forgot about it, and not a single bullet was fired.

This situation is easy to understand if you ever played Civilization. You end up in war with some small nation on the other side of the world, usually because of alliances, but it's too much trouble to actually get your armies all over there so you ignore the whole thing.

I have been told that Berwick-Uopn-Tweed is still at war with Germany. Apparently it was specifically included in the declaration of war, but not in the peace treaty.

The weird(est) part of the whole deal. The flag of Huéscar looks identical to the flag of denmark.

It was called "The Forgotten War" by every single other nation.

Same as Montenegro vs. Japan. :D (1904-2006)
Actualy, as Russian-Japanese war started, Montenegro also declared war, and few men joined the Russian forses. Russia lost the war 1905, but Montenegro didn't signed peace threaty, joined Kingdom of SHS (later Yugoslavia) and... forgot to sign it. Until 2006. when Montenegro declared independence.
