Name EVERY Country Type-In

Can you name all possible responses that you can type in for each country?
Any type-in line that has infinite type-ins will accept any of them. In most cases, this means the country with infinite type-ins will only require the country itself and any acronyms it has. An infinity sign symbolizes infinite answers.
For example, Democratic Republic of the Congo accepts anything containing 'Congo' and an acronym, so this quiz will only require anything containing 'Congo' and its acronym.

Types:
Exact: Exact country name; Acronym: Five or less letters used to abbreviate something relating to the country, may include 'the' in front if applicable; Former: Former country name; Section: Part of a country name, usually used with 'and'; Shortening: A proper shortened version of a name that is not an acronym or section; Preferred: The preferred name of a country by some people that is not primarily used on JetPunk, including countries that want 'the' in front; Alternative: Alternative improper name that is not a misspelling nor a former name, including adding 'the' in front if it is not preferred or the country is indifferent; Misspelling: A misspelling of the English name
Thank you RoCce, DommelBommel, and kimad for spotting bugs and special thanks to evilcheeser for your suggestions and bugs spotted in the comments!
A country will light up after only one type-in is named, dots will remain until all type-ins are named
Adding extra letters after a country name doesn't count, but adding 'the' in front does if applicable
Countries are sorted by alphabetical order. Type-ins for the same country are listed in the order Exact, Acronym, Former, Section, Shortening, Preferred, Alternative, Misspelling. Alphabetical order is used as a tiebreaker if needed.

A few small notes:

I have no idea the best way to do this, but it would help if you could have a more clear visual delineation between one country and the next (in the answer boxes). I found myself a few times checking back like, "wait, is the one before the exact name also for this country? It's the one after, isn't it?"

It would also be nice if you could indicate *slightly* more than "Variation" for some of them. Like, differentiate between another name for the place and an accepted misspelling, maybe, or group 'another name for the place' into the same category as "Former", I'm not sure.

I would also suggest that The Gambia not be called a "Variation" name for the country, since they have expressed an official preference for using the article in their name. I don't know if there's an easy way to write "actually more complete than the common name used on the site" in the Type box, but I do feel there must be something a bit better than just using "Variation".

Wow! It looks beautiful! You surpassed my expectations. I do still notice a couple little things you could improve, but it's looking great.

Specifically, your note for "Preferred" is *slightly* off in regards to how you actually implemented it. I would leave the category as-is, and just change the note, though. It's more like "preferred by some people" rather than just "preferred". ("The Ukraine", for example, is now considered an outdated name, and generally not used in an official capacity, pretty much the exact opposite of The Gambia.)

Also the Czech Republic is erroneously separated from one of its type-in names by one of the blue bars.

But these are both quite minor fixes. Thanks for listening to the suggestions and coming up with some improvements of your own to boot! I'm off to my mission to convince QM to allow "Northern Macadamia Nuts".

Thank you for your checking back! I really appreciate feedback and you're doing me a big favor by giving detailed suggestions.

Sorry, I am not very knowledgeable with the politics behind names. Is there a list of the different cases with 'the' anywhere? If I change Preferred to preferred by some group then the former country names will fall in that category. I'd rather place them all correctly. If that's not realistic I can combine that with Alternative and it should be ok.

I'll fix Czech Republic, thanks.

Level 69
Jul 20, 2022
Um, I don't know of a list somewhere, but my understanding is that The Bahamas (which is irrelevant here) and The Gambia are the only countries that officially prefer the article in their (English) names, most of the island groups and Czech Republic/United-somethings are ambivalent on the subject and the Ukraine/possibly* the Yemen (which QM does not accept anyways) are considered non-preferred by their respective countries.

Level 69

*The Yemen is a weird case because most nouns in Arabic are preceded by articles, even proper ones, i.e. Syria is called al-Jumhūrīyah al-ʻArabīyah as-Sūrīyah, ("al-" is "the", something like The Republic (of) the Arabia of Syria word-for-word/ the Syrian Arab Republic by meaning), so their only objection is about why people use it for them and not all the other Arabic countries, not the using of it in the first place. Maybe that's why QM just left it out, I'm not sure.

As with most things, when you get nearly 200 groups using their own systems, no one entirely agrees about anything, so there are always weird edge-cases. You don't really need to steer people to the exact right answer, though, so much as put them in the right general area, at least in this particular quiz, so I wouldn't get too too technical about it. If you feel that way about Preferred, then I suppose that's fair enough and it's your quiz so do it how you want. I'm offering suggestions, not making demands after all.

No, I really appreciate the knowledge, I'd love to break it down and be as accurate as possible. Thanks for the background. I'll make sure to put them in their respective categories but I can't do it right now. Thank you again for your continued suggestions and insight!

Finally got 411/412, but I am sorry to report that the 412th answer is incorrect. Dominiean Republic is not an accepted spelling on CoTW, and it should instead be the matching spelling that is missing, which *is* accepted. I missed so many variants of that particular country that I didn't notice that before.
