Countries Breakdown Puzzle (Red Herring Version)

Solve the short clues on the right and left. Then combine the letters and unscramble to form a country name.
• Each pair of clues contains ONE extra red herring letter that is not part of the country anagram!
• A correctly guessed country will reveal the extra red herring letter in the pink grid.
• These 10 letters (which themselves include an extra red herring letter) will unscramble to make one more bonus country!
Example: Clue 1: Mail a letter....SEND; Clue 2: Not dry....WET; SEND + WET (minus red herring letter T) = SWEDEN

Is it Kama instead of Karma? Nice variation with the 'red herring'!
