This is the first time I got the nine-letter answer before anything else. The chatter on Jetpunk about the capital's name change, in the four months it took for that new name to be updated into this website, means that everyone knows Kazakhstan's capital now!

Perhaps better to put “prefix for” rather than “prefix with” as I read that to mean a word which could be prefixed with/by Atlantic or continental, eg something meteorological or geology-related.

Nur-sultan was renamed Astana (again) in September 2022.
