Countries beginning with W or X

How frustrating can the English alphabet be? We have countries for every letter, even Q, O and Y. Why not W or X? Well, there are in fact contenders for these exclusive letters, if you dig deep enough. Perhaps they might be former countries, or even future countries, or maybe they begin with W or X in their own languages.
