Countries of the world : biggest difference between most guessed and most populous

Based on scambigol's "Countries of the World: from Most to Least Guessed" quiz. Guess which countries have the biggest difference between their rank in the Countries of the World quiz, and their actual population rank.
For instance, the first country in this quiz is the 173th country by population but the 20th most guessed, which makes a difference of +153 ranks. The last country is the 61th by population but the 174th most guessed, which makes a difference of -113 ranks.
The hint gives the initial of the country'name. If the country's name is made of more than 1 word, the letter is followed by "..."
This is my first quiz so don't hesitate to tell me what I could improve
