Whenever I think of the difference between the Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it always reminds me of Monty Python and the Holy Grail when Galahad enters the castle Anthrax. He identifies himself as "Sir Galahad, the Chaste". To which Zoot replies, "Mine is Zoot. Just....Zoot."

What can I say? I'm deep.

Somehow I was expecting your comment to cite Monty Python's Life of Brian and the People's Front of Judea vs The Judean People's Front.

Countries with "Democratic" in their names are not.

IMO you are correct... twice! Because there are two countries named Congo. Anything beyond the five letters is off-line qualification.

I don't see why Congo shouldn't be accepted when every other country on the list has a longer full name; for example "the Gabonese Republic".

Neither Congo claims the entirety of each other, though. They're two separate states, without dispute.

Yeah, but I think the point Eva was making was that you need the descriptor to distinguish between the two. You don't need to say "I'm going to the Argentine Republic" because there is only one Argentina. But if you say "I'm going to Congo," there is no way to know which you mean.

We do that for the same reason we list "Taiwan" instead of "People's Republic of China" Another reason is because the word "Congo" is said in two different country names, "Democratic Republic of the Congo" and "Republic of the Congo" so if Congo were listed as one country it would be false and you couldn't have two answers for one word.

Why Guinea is not acceptable ? It is a common entry in Wikipedia.
