Country Logic Puzzle by Scambigol #17

There are 24 empty cells; each contains a country. They all start with different letters.
You shouldn't type an answer if you are not 100% sure it goes there, no guessing!!

Read carefully all instructions

A. Rules:

1) initial letters have been placed by making chess knight-moves moving from one to the next one - so for example the country starting with B is one knight-move away from the country starting with A and one knight-move away from the country starting with C
2) cells with an orange border contain the first and the last answers in alphabetical order
3) cells with a blue border contain countries beginning with a unique letter (in the sense that no other country in the world starts with the same letter)
4) no row and no column contains two countries from the same continent
5) there are no multiple word countries
6) all island countries have different name length
7) all landlocked countries have different name length
8) horizontally adjacent countries have different name length
9) no continent has 3 answers with the same name length
Please don't cheat by guess and check!

Solved with a little guess work I confess, but really enjoyed it so tried again working with the stipulations above. It is very hard and to almost reach the end, I've made the assumption that Micronesia is a multiple word country and Russia is considered European. I have reached the point where I have 2 options for Z, 3 for M, and 2 for P and perhaps I'm overlooking something but can't seem to eliminate anything using the rules you set...

Yes Micronesia is multi-word and Russia is European like in the 'Countries of the World' quiz- I should add a note specifying that names and continents are taken from there. For Z look at rule 7; after adding Z you can remove a possible answer of P again and a possible answer of M, again because of rule 7. Consider rule 8 to rule out the other M option. Thanks for your comment!
