Countries with no letter A

Did you know that the names of most countries have at least one "A"? Try to figure out which ones do not!
One country in Africa appears on this quiz with its French name.
Please inform me kindly if I missed any countries.

Really nice quiz! I like it! Maybe you can do more of these with other letters (e, i, l, s etc.). :)

Thanks! I may perhaps add those, but I'll ensure that the sort of letters for which I'll make a quiz like this are really common in countries, so it won't be a lot to type!

There are a ton of countries without each of those letters. Think and you will know.

Ivory Coast has a "a", at least in English which is generally the lingua franca on this site. (Except of course for rampant use of phrases like "lingua franca.") :>

If Ivory Coast is called Cote D'Ivoire to fit the quiz, why not Timor L'Este for East Timor ?
Level 66
Dec 24, 2022
Because they speak portuguese, so it should be Timor Leste

It's only Cote D'lvoire because the official language of the Ivory Coast is french

This is a really nice idea for a quiz! It might need some changes to be featured though.

It’s a very old quiz, but just in case:

To make it norminated, you need to at least:

- remove Ivory Coast, we don’t use the name in the countries’ languages (otherwise, Czech Republic wouldn’t be in it).

- use jetpunk format (philippines accepts philipines, Liechtenstein accepts Lichtenstein, etc ..)

- sort alphabetically (For America)

- Accept Czechia for Czech Republic, as it is an official name

- maybe separate Oceania and Asia, even if it makes it easier

You can combine "- use jetpunk format" and "- Accept Czechia" into "- use Auto type-ins".

And Quizmaster will likely make these changes if it is featured.

Czech Republic does go by Czechia now, though.

If you're going to use Cote d'Ivoire to get around the A in Ivory Coast, why not also use Timor Leste to get around the A in East Timor?

I notice that Czechia doesn't work for Czech Republic, presumably because it has an A in it?

I think it's because this quiz was last updated in 2012, before the type-in existed.

Mexico and Chile are the wrong way around for the alphabetical order, otherwise a good quiz. Well made.

You should get rid of Czech Republic and Côte-d'Ivoire, because they can be written Czechia and Ivory Coast, which contain As and can make it all wrong.

The JetPunk name of Czech Republic is Czech Republic, so that one is appropriate. The other has a caveat regarding it.
