I like it, a nice brainteaser, but there seem to be quite a few valid answers missing. Jamaica = 18, Myanmar = 14, Denmark = 14, Bahamas = 14, Bolivia = 12, Bahrain = 12.

In fact I believe there are twelve more countries that score 12 or more.

The instructions say the length limit is 7 letters, but you've actually limited them to 6.

Technically a name for the Czech Republic, though most don't consider it when spelling out names used in in English

Yes, but the full and proper name is Czech Republic, meaning it shouldn't qualify for this quiz.

There's no rule that words can only be 7 letters in Scrabble. You can only play 7 letters at a time, but you can use existing letters to make words of up to 15 letters (the size of the board).

I'll say that 9-15 letter words are almost never played in Scrabble (although possible). In professional Scrabble, 8-letter words are very common as a bingo using all 7 tiles and an existing letter on the board. I can see not wanting to add 9-15 letter countries, but I don't know why 8-letter countries are not included.

I think there are still some missing, for example Myanmar, which is 14 points.

Hungary - 14 also is one

I don't know how everyone forgot about Mozambique, assuming there are no multipliers of word or letter score, it would net 34 points.

This is more than 7 letters according to the instructions.

I do believe the max length should be 8 considering you add letters to words that are already on the board. Just a suggestion though.

The full name is not "Czechia", but rather "Czech Republic", meaning that it doesn't count. Please fix this. You should also consider making a caveat about Myanmar, since it can also go by the name of Burma, which doesn't make the list.
