It's strange to see how most of the nouthernmost countries have different initial letters and thus make it to this list.

That might be in part due to the Arabic language. We have weird guttural sounds that can only be somewhat represented in English by uncommon letters. I'm talking about Oman and Qatar specifically (try googling their Arabic pronunciations!). Or it might just be pure coincidence.

It's sovereign countries only, so England+Scotland+Wales+Northern Ireland all come under "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland".

I am from the UK and I can say that England/Scotland/Wales/Northern Ireland are NOT there own countries, There are nations which make up the country 'The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland' so both gnuandrew and Matthew07 are right.

For 'shinwasha'....... Wales and Northern Ireland are similar to Scotland's situation which is as follows: ....... Scotland is a country which is part of the United Kingdom (UK). The UK is a regionalised unitary state, and since the late 1990s, a system of devolution has emerged in the UK, under which Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have each been granted some measure of self-government within the UK. Scotland entered into a political union with England in 1707, and since then has sent representatives to the Palace of Westminster, which became the British parliament. Currently, 59 Members of Parliament (MPs) represent Scottish constituencies at Westminster, and issues such as the constitution, foreign affairs, defence, social security, pensions, issues of medical ethics, and fiscal, economic and monetary policy are decided at UK-wide level. In 1999, an 129-member Scottish Parliament was established in Edinburgh; it has full power to make law in Scotland, except in reserved matter

It would be more of a challenge if you yellow-boxed it to where people would have to fill in the country matching that specific letter, otherwise most people can just fill in northern countries randomly and get half the answers right away :)
