It's a constituent of the Netherlands, and not a sovereign state or independent country.

Yes it is, though to work out whether to expect it as an answer here, read on a bit more. Aruba is one of four countries, alongside the country of the Netherlands, CuraƧao and Sint Maarten, that make up the the kingdom of the Netherlands. Some interpret the kingdom as being the country, and the four countries as sorts of provinces; while others interpret the countries to be countries, and the kingdom as a supra-national entity that holds them together in a sort of commonwealth. The approach you take will determine what will appear as answers here.

I think you mean what approach the quiz setter takes (rather than 'you' the quizzee). And the approach here is nearly always Sovereign nations, as appears on the Countries of the World quiz. And when I say "nearly always" I mean that if constituent countries (like England Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland) then the context of the quiz will make that clear. Otherwise, Countries=Sovereign Nations.

Where I live "country" implies it is independent. There is so such thing where I live as a non independent country

I was running the countries through my head and thought of both Lesotho and Niger but somehow they didn't click. Sigh.

That took me forever! I thought I'd breeze through but had to undo timer and them it took forever as one at a time I'd change my thinking somehow and realize those fit.... Wow am I slow! If kids could spend time every day doing things like this maybe their brains would not freeze into preconceived patterns like mine has?

A lot harder than you expect! But fun nonetheless. Is it bad that I thought of "Siam" first for "AM"?

Why not accept just the first part of the country name? For example just accept Luxembou for Luxembourg

no, because most of us are already conditioned to type out the whole country quickly and if just the last two letters are left out then we have to backspace and its just a hindrance when trying to go fast...

That was tricky with ESWANTINI seeing how the country name change just occurred in the last few weeks. I think I mentally imagined every country on ever continent and was stumped. Good one! Loved the quiz Now I have to remember that Macedonia is now North Macedonia.
