I think it would be more fun with another minute or two. I think I was stuck in the 130's, until I made a cheat-sheet, and just casually typed them in.

The race was more fun, but I'd probably still be mad about missing the little stuff that doesn't show up on the map well.

Inspired by TWM03's Optimal Solution (Nov 30,2020; 37 Words || 207 Characters):

Optimal solution by fewest keystrokes AND fewest word count (35 Words || 207 Characters):

USA Guatemala CostaRica Brazil Peru DC!R* SouthAfrica Malawi** Ethiopia Cameroon Togo Guinea Senegal Libya SaudiArabia Syria Iran UK France Spain Italy Austria Denmark*** Sweden^ Romania Serbia FYROM India Laos Indonesia Brunei ROK Russia Tajistan [sic]

* ! signifies using the left arrow key to type R in the middle of D_C to also get DRC as well as DR at once

** Interchangeable with Zambia

*** or Germany

^ or Norway

(Quick note: TWM03 had made the conclusion that an optimal solution using PRC for China didn't exist; I now agree, but would welcome anyone who proves the claim wrong)
