1. What do you mean by countries being "specific" or not? 2. I find it remarkable not to see the Seychelles here.

1. I know it's not clear what I mean by "specific" but didn't know how to say it in a better way. What I mean is that the two Congs and Micronesia allow for anything that contains 'CONGO' and 'MICRONESIA' respectively. This means that typing 'THE democratic republic of the congo, 'THE republic of the congo' and 'THE federated states of micronesia' all work, however they're not "specific" if you see what I mean. 2. It's not here because "the seychelles" doesn't work in the quiz -> http://www.jetpunk.com/quizzes/how-many-countries-can-you-name.php

"Cote d'Ivoire" should be on here

Here are its type-ins:

It depends - the way I interpreted it is that the name is "Cote D'Ivoire" and since "TheCoteD'Ivoire" isn't allowed, it doesn't make it into the list
