Interesting quiz. Could you consider adding the countries as an acceptable answer, for example I tried Sri Lanka, but it wasn't accepted.

Andorra la Vella means "Andorra the Town". Effectively, it's Andorra City.

Well in catalan, vella means old, town would be vila. I always thought it was "Andorra the Old" (like Andorre-la-Vieille in french)

Interesting..."Andorra la Vella means 'Andorra the Town', to distinguish it from the Principality of Andorra as a whole. Although in Catalan the word vella (like French vieille) is derived from the Latin word vetula which means 'old', the Vella here (like French ville and Catalan vila) is derived from the Latin word villa and means 'town'."

Updated to remove Nur-SulTAN/KazakhsTAN because it is now known as Astana again.
