though I did miss a few by not typing in "the republic of..." etc
and missed loads of obvious ones.
'United States'? OF AMERICA. And add to that People's Republic of China instead of just China? What about Democratic People's Republic of Korea? You bunch of utter twat ends. Taiwan should work.
im quite pleased
what ones were you most gutted at missing?
calling China "Republic of China" when its actually "Peoples Republic of China", I mean if your gonna me pedantic then do it properly.
Also United Kingdom was one country, but Isle of Man, Jersey etc were all seperate. just wrong.
Taiwan is the Republic of China. It's where all the capitalists from China ran to after the revolution or something.

Despite 'Andy' not allowing me to miss the apostrophe from 'People's Republic' but still allowing me other stuff that he shouldn't have allowed. Which I can't remember right now. Because I'm so angry.
But I list off every country instantly... just I'm not so good at spelling them... or typing quickly.
It follows from a year of unemployment and a few dozen maps/atlases
Why most of those are listed is stupid, seeing as most of them, are like, not countries. At least not independent countries - and it doesn't make much sense to do it any other way, as it's an impossibly grey area as to what counts.
but some of the ones I 'missed out' are patently not countries.
Isle Of Man = not a country
Jersey and Guernsey = not countries
Abhkazia = not a country
Nagorno-Karabakh, Pridnestrovie, Akrotiri and Dhelekia = WHERE THE FUCK ARE THESE PLACES?
it's 'Akrotiri and Dhelekia'. One country. NOW WHO'S THE THICKO EY?
Nagorno-Karabakh is a patch of land that Armenia and Azerbaijan have been fighting over for the past 3 millennia. And it's also NOT A FUCKING COUNTRY.
I remembered Chad though, so I'm happy.
im quite proud of this.
I am happy with my effort
Abkhazia and south ossetia.
no one does except those damm russians
This thread marks the first time I've heard of 'Akrotiri and Dhekelia'. Buh?!
And 'Aland'. Fuck off is that an actual place.
its a part of sweden or denmark, i'm not sure it counts as a country though as you may as well have the isle of wight up there as well
I looked it up. It's that little island inbetween Sweden and Finland.
THAT WAS NEVER THERE BEFORE TODAY.
Dun dun duuuuunn...
for about ten minutes
they allow Aland and South Ossetia but don't consider Tibet a country. TIBET, for god's sake.
