I've never heard of anyone calling Israel or Italy "Yi Guo". Jia Guo, Pu Guo, Liao Guo are extremely literal forms of the name that nobody ever uses.

I'm guessing the quizmaster is Taiwanese or at least lives there, but there are lots of differences in mainland China. Portugal - 葡萄牙 Italy - 意大利 Laos - 老挝 Canada - 加拿大

In Taiwan I never heard of anyone saying "加國","義國" or "葡國", however "寮國" is what we called laos, which is different than the chinese version "老挝".

Do please specify. No one on the mainland has ever called Laos "Liao Guo," it is only "Lao Wo." Also, I've never heard of the Portugal, Italy, and Israel sayings ever. Finally, you are missing a couple: Bangladesh (孟加拉国) The full UAE name (阿拉伯联合酋长国)
