Most Obscure Countries Quiz

There's a British game show called Pointless which I've become a fan of. This quiz was inspired by the game show. 40 of the answers from the 'Countries of the World' quiz have been identified by less than 31% of those who have taken that quiz. Your task is to name those 40 countries.

Glad to hear you love it as well! I really want there to be an Australian version of the show (that way I can actually come up with more answers!)
