Eswatini isn't called Swailand anymore so that doesn't count anymore. Also Scotland is not a recognized country, rather its part of the UK, so it also doesn't count.

Scotland is absolutely part of the United Kingdom. "Country" in the modern context typically is meant to mean "independent state", however the word is also the name of the first level subdivisions of the United Kingdom, which is where some confusion arises. So while Scotland may be a "country", it is not an independent state and has not been in at least 300 years.

I only forgot Serbia, but my brain is literally focused on harder countries like Sao Tome and Principe. Also, THEY LITERALLY CHANGED THE NAME FROM SWAZILAND TO ESTWANITI IN 2019! IT LITERIALLY SAYS IT ON THE TOP AND YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE IT. ALSO, IF YOU DO COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD, IT LITERALLY SAYS STUFF LIKE WALES AND ENGLAND AND SCOTLAND ARE NOT CONSIDERED AS SOVERIGN NATIONS! sorry for the caps by the way
