Countries whose Capital is not their Largest City

Name the countries of the world where the largest city by population is not the capital of that country.
I have not counted urban population cities in the same metropolitan area as the capital as it becomes confusing, so only if the cities are obviously separate
Benin is not counted, as Cotonou is seen as the capital alongside Porto-Novo on Jetpunk

Thanks for this quiz ! I would argue for including Israel though, because Jerusalem is the official capital counted in Jetpunk quizzes, although most countries recognize Tel-Aviv as capital.

Also, what about San Marino ?
