Macedonia should not be in the quiz. By that logic most nations should be in the quiz, because a lot of them have the words "republic of" or "federation" in their official titles. Also, if you are going to include DRC, might as well include China.

Agree on Micronesia. However, DRC ought to be in here because it is differentiated from Republic of the Congo, making both of these their common English name.

They renamed it to Czechia so you should take that one out now as it's no longer officially called Czech Republic.

You still need to put in Macedonia to get 100% even though you've already put it in... is that meant to be happening, or is it just a mistake because you changed it?
