yes ,but it is commonly used for taiwan to discern between two chinas, I agree that it should be used more commonly seeing as it now goes by Taiwan rather than ROC and there isn't some other name for the two congos.

Didn't even bother to type in Congo because Chile was such an obvious answer for C and it left me completely confused when I got down to just D and R. I'm pretty sure I tried Rwanda at least 10 times.

No you shouldn't, just because it's a territory of something doesn't mean it will count on this qui site, I can understand if you're new, but you're level 62 already and should realize at this point that territories don't count

eSwatini has been an official name change, like Burma to Myanmar, though I agree people still call it Swaziland so it would make sense to highlight it.

If 'Republic' include the country name,

then,'Republic of Chile' is the southernmost country beginning with 'R'.
