Even though Czech republic is already filled in, you need to type it to complete the quiz. Please fix this

El Salvador shouldn't be here because (EL) in Spanish means (the) and if that counts then the Netherlands should count aswell

While that does make sense and is true, I'm using the English names of the countries, so I wouldn't take the translated name into mind.

Can you make it so you do not have to type Czech Republic to finish the quiz? I kept wondering what I was missing.

A hyphenated word is one word.

So "third" = 1 word, "party" = 1 word, and "third-party" = 1 word?

"First" = 1 word, "generation" = 1 word, and "first-generation" = 1 word?

Is "AI-generated" 1 word?

A hyphen is a joiner to make clear that one word is associated with another. The only case where a hyphenated word is one word (which is now rarely used) is when a hyphen is used to indicate that the word continues on the next line of text. To tell the difference, ask yourself if the two parts would be words if the hyphen wasn't there. "Des-picable" = 1 word because neither des nor picable are words. "Vendor-owned" is two words because vendor and owned are both words.

Guinea-Bissau always has a hyphen, regardless of where it appears on a page of text. The hyphen isn't being used for word-wrap (which is two words). It's being used to create associations between the words Guinea and Bissau.

This is a bit pedantic, I realize, but I think there should be more clearly established rules about whether the definite article "The" is included as part of the country name.

Supposedly there are countries that include the article as part of their name, like "The Bahamas" and "The Gambia". The article in those names is always capitalized. By contrast, country names like "the Netherlands" and "the United Kingdom" include the article based on whether it's grammatically necessary in context, just like any other normal noun.

That's a good point, I might add them as givens as just text to clear up any confusion.

Hyphenation doesn't turn two words into one. "third-party" for example is not one word. It is two tied together for convenience.
