Mauritius is also a candidate as around half its population profess to be hindus. Not as high as India and Nepal, but still a potential answer to this question.
Nepal is obviously the answer though.
In August 2018, church president Russell M. Nelson asked members of the church and others to cease using the terms "LDS", "Mormon", and "Mormonism" to refer to the church, its membership, or its belief system, and instead to call the church by its full and official name.
I'm not really big on countries or organizations throwing their weight around in this way. It's a power move.
But if you insist, I have my own demand. You must hereby always refer to our site by its full and proper name: "The Glorious and Perfectly-Accurate Trivia Website JetPunk".
Your analogy appears disingenuous on two counts.
1) You label it as a "demand," suggesting by inference that the movement by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to refer to it by that name is also demanding. Instead, it was termed a request.
2) Your ‘demand’ is to refer to this website by a name that is neither the formal nor the official name of the site, emphasizing the absurdity of the demand. This seems meant to imply that the Church’s request is similarly absurd, when that request instead refers to use of an official and formal name that has been in use for 184 years and the name under which the entity has been legally incorporated for 171 years.
If you actually re-registered the website under the domain name "The Glorious and Perfectly-Accurate Trivia Website JetPunk" or at least put it on the masthead, and if people then refused to use it, then I suppose you could make your analogizing demand. But that's not the case.
It also seems strange to hold that countries or organizations throw weight around through self-identification. Eswatini, North Macedonia, and Czechia have recently done that. Meta and Alphabet Inc. have done that too. And to far less indignation from professional media or quiz-writers, even though they were even CHANGING names.
To the direct point, the issue here is that the name used here in the quiz purports to be the actual name in contrast to a nickname and is in that sense objectively wrong.
It would be like a quiz saying "The film 'Dr. Strangelove or how I learned to Love the Bomb' is better known by what short-form?" Or, "The Lao Democratic Republic is better known by what name?"
People can probably guess that the question refers to Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb., or the Lao People's Democratic Republic. But if the question is going to purport to give the actual name of something, why be willfully and objectively inaccurate?
