It's because there's the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo. Neither of them technically start with a 'C'

If so, technically China is called People's Republic of China. I think Congo should be added to this game!!

It's a pretty gray area. I think it's acceptable to exclude Congo and not others because China (for example) could only refer to the PRC, whereas "Congo" is ambiguous and could refer to either of the two Congos. As for Ivory Coast, the rationale behind using the French spelling, I expect, is because the country, unlike most others, actively discourages the use of the English spelling and considers it incorrect.

It's still going by common name. China is not generally called "Democratic People's Republic of China," just as The Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea are generally simply referred to as "North Korea" and "South Korea." Congo is accepted on other quizzes for DRC (And the full answer will spell out Democratic Republic of Congo, not just Congo), but not on this one because its common name (Democratic Republic of Congo) starts with a D, not a C. Also, in 1986, the government of the "Ivory Coast" declared "Côte d'Ivoire" to be its formal name for diplomatic purposes, and officially refuses to recognize or accept any translation from French to another language.

what you state is true, however on the contrary due to recent legislation, China and Congo are technically the same country. The reason for this is they are both currently ran by the same Government. Check your facts before you comment you peasant.

JetPunk uses the conventional, English names of countries. Most countries have long names that no one uses. For example, Taiwan is "Republic of China" and Mexico is "United Mexican States". If we used the long names, this quiz would be really stupid. So no, China shouldn't be under P.

Netherlands Antilles was dissolved in 2010, creating the new countries of Curaçao, Sint Maarten and Aruba in the process. They all remain in free association with the country of the Netherlands, a bit like Marshall Islands is with the United States. The remaining parts of Netherlands Antilles (Saba, Sint Eustatius and Bonaire) have come within the country of the Netherlands. To make it more confusing, all of these states are all a part of the broader Kingdom of the Netherlands - Netherland's answer to the British Commonwealth, perhaps?

"C" is an infuriating letter. It can sound like "k", "s" or "ch", so unlike the other country by letter quizzes, there is not one specific sound associated with the letter. I always mess up this one. Gah.

1. Cyprus is there. 2. Central African Republic (CAR) starts with a 'C' and that is the official name for it. The official name for Congo is split between two countries: "Republic of Congo" and "Democratic Republic of the Congo". Neither of those two start with the letter 'C'

They are, actually. New Zealanders have to have a passport to enter Cook Islands, and they do not have the right to reside or vote there. The Cooks have their own parliament, prime minister, flag, are members of several UN agencies (though aren't a full member), and even its foreign policy is, despite its free association status with NZ, independent of NZ as well. That places it at clear arms length from NZ, compared with Micronesia and Marshall Islands, which are both more closely tied to the United States.

Cook Islanders are citizens of New Zealand. Cook Islands rely on the New Zealand government for Foregin Affairs policy as well as defense. And the Cook Islands parliament was formerly a hotel. To claim to be an independent nation is just silly.

Re: Cabo Verde and Cote D'Ivoire. Both of these countries have issued official statements declaring that these are the names by which they would like to be called, which is why the convention is to call them by these names. Cabo Verde's was very recent (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/12/131212-maps-cabo-verde-cartography-science-cape-verde-africa/). It might be outside the scope of this conversation to discuss why they feel so strongly about that, but, in any case, the governments of Cabo Verde and Cote D'Ivoire have specifically stated they do not want to be called Cape Verde or Ivory Coast, respectively.
