And Ethiopia, not Erthiopia. And the Democratic Republic of the Congo (are we supposed to guess that you not only misspell Democratic, but shorten Republic to Rep.?)

derp derp. You misspelled Kyrgyzstan, and "Erthiopia." Er my GERD!! DRC is impossible to get because in addition to misspelling Democratic you also typed Rep instead of Republic so obviously "Democratic Republic of Congo" doesn't work and you don't accept simply "Congo" like most quizzes on the site or "DRC" like some quizzes. Finally, Palestine isn't a country.

Burma is still referred to as Burma and many people don't recognize the name change to Myanmar as being official. You also haven't amended the errors other commentors pointed out
