Many of those are just abbreviations of the countries

Calling them type-ins are more accurate, but then again this quiz won't make sense since many countries accept several type-ins

e.g. MICRONESIA is accepted for Federated States of Micronesia too

The quiz instruction has much more clear description I suppose. I have put down all the rules in the instructions and caveat, which would probably answer all of your confusion.

Also, it is almost impossible to find a perfect title for the quiz in just a few words.

The “standard name” is according to the Jetpunk quiz and not anything else. Because you know, Quizmaker is the God here apparently
