Some of these accept the full names of countries, but others require that we leave out the letters you've provided in the hints. Please make all of them accept the full common names of the country as an answer.

Seems a bit odd that it doesn't accept 'Saint Vincent AND THE Grenadines' or 'Trinidad AND Tobago' but it does accept 'Sao Tome AND Principe'. Should be accepted with the 'and'/'and the' included when typed as part of the answer.

That's the very last thing the Macedonians would use to describe themselves!

Still, it's the official name for the country, and it's long, so it should be added here. Also please punctuate São Tomé and Príncipe correctly :)

Its official name is Republic of Macedonia, 19 letters. I'd love to tidy up São Tomé and Príncipe - this was one of my earliest quizzes before I'd discovered ã's and so forth - but unfortunately if I were to change them, the quiz editor would consider it a change of answer and reset all the stats. So I'll leave it as it is for now and let you add the diacritics in your mind!

Why else would they call it "FYROM"? Look it up.

That's what Greece calls it, not what its official name is.
