Countries that Officially Speak an Indo-European Language

Really gives you an impression of how widespread these languages are. Enter countries that de jure, officially speak an Indo-European language.
Some countries, such as the USA and the UK, do not have an official language, so do not appear here.
I will not include regional languages or minority languages; it just takes too long to do.
I had to scour the web and use many, many sources. There was a lot of conflicting information. If there is a mistake, just tell me courteously in the comments.

Great quiz! A very good idea, even if it mixes situations which are quite different, i.e. Congo (maybe 10% IE (French)-speakers, colonial language) and Armenia (probably 90% IE (Armenian)-speakers, national language), but I guess your idea is to show how widespread IE languages are in some way or other. A few suggestions: – Could you accept « Gambia » as well instead of « The Gambia », since you place it under G? – I also think you should accept « St Lucia », « St Vincent » etc., not only « Saint Lucia »...

Sorry, my internet has been really spotty lately, and I'm barely able to access google chrome, much less jetpunk sites. I took your suggestions--- although I swear I already made gambia acceptable.

You can't say something in the instructions an just not follow through. Mauritius, Mexico, Ethiopia, Australia, and Eritrea have no official languages. Also I didn't think Turkmen was an Indo-European Language, but I may be wrong on that.

Oops, I did screw Turkmenistan up. I just looped it in with some other major -stan countries, which all have Russian as an official language alongside a native one.

As for the five other countries you mentioned, I had a hard time deciding whether they do or don't have an official language. It's difficult at times because a quick google search says Ethiopia has Amharic as an official language, but some website says it doesn't, but wikipedia says it does... etc. I've removed Mexico, Australia, and Ethiopia, but kept the other two because wikipedia says the have english as an official language.
