Thanks, I'm going to take the US off and push it to 1900 so that there are very few errors. Actually, I'll completely redo it.

Still missing Yammoussoukro. Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) moved its capital here from Abidjan in 1983

Technically Nur-sultan is the same city as Astana. Just changed its name in 2019
