Congo refers to the region that covers both countries, so yes, Republic of Congo and DRC are two of the few countries that are commonly called by their full names.

It's also commonly just called Congo.

I hear both being called Congo, or The Congo. Saying that Congo is the official name of either wouldn't be right.

Saying that China is the official name of China technically isn't right, either.

But there aren't two Chinas, so China is an acceptable shorthand for the official name. Congo is not an acceptable shorthand as it could refer to either.

The official name of North Korea is the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The official name of South Korea is the Republic of Korea. Both are often referred to simply as "Korea," or by their unofficial names North and South Korea. Guinea is officially the Republic of Guinea. Though there is also the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, Guyana, French Guiana, The Guianas, Papua New Guinea, and Ghana, which all have longer official names as well. The United States of America is commonly called America, even though it is not the only country in America; or the United States, even though there is also the United States of Mexico, the United States of Belgium (until 1790), the United States of Brazil (until 1937), and others.

Short names are not unofficial. All those countries have unique official short names. The Congos do not.

Official short names are not the most relevant, here is the list: http://www.unece.org/cefact/locode/countries.html North and South Korea are not official, Congo (for RoC) is though. Some countries also prefer to stick to the long forms

It's a bit weird because it's sort of in the alphabetical order at least at first and then it isn't.

Jul 14, 2015
Like, a rapsy, wispy voice telling someone to hush?
Or like tap water running down from the faucet?
Maybe you just learned how to say the letter 'p' but weird letters follow?

Jul 14, 2015
It is an acronym, in fact. The first 3 letters come from my first name, and the rest 4 letters come from my faculty and my department in my undergrad study.

Just to clarify something, Togo and Fiji, despite their 4-letter lengths, use only 3 letters as there are repeated letters.

Question to the creator: How did you acquire this list? Are these countries listed somewhere else, or did you write some algorithm to find all of them? Or did you just think long and hard about it?
