"Land" Countries

Can you name the 7 countries whose common English name ends in the letters "land"?
Doesn't include countries that end in "lands"
Sovereign nations only, so Scotland and Greenland don't count
As of February 2019, we now use the name "Eswatini" instead of "Swaziland"

Yes it is quite remarkable isn't it that jet punkers simply don't realise that the residents of Scotland voted for it to become an independent nation several years ago and that now it is a member of the UN in its own right.

Holland is Netherlands, I suppose Netherlands should be here but it has "lands" instead of "land", same with the Marshall Islands and the Solomon Islands but they also have "lands" instead of "land". Holland is also the informal name for Netherlands anyway.
