For those of you who haven't heard of this country, we are not fully recognised yet but claim the Hawaiian Islands; all of Saudi Arabia, Oman, Yemen, the UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and Jordan; Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea and Papua New Guinea (particularly the areas of these supposed countries with most Catholics); China (including Taiwan) and both the Democratic Republic and Republic of the Congo; Ireland and a few surrounding islands including Great Britain; the Korean Peninsula; and South Sudan.

it depends on whether you consider 'Guinea-Bissau' a single word or two words. I don't know which of the two is correct
