Maybe remove alphabetical ordering to make it harder?

I wondered that, too. But the average score is 12/19 so I don't think it needs to be harder.

Why not have to write the names backward in Chinese, that would make it a tad harder?

Sorry, the idea is good, but I don't like the fact that there are no countries in AT and TI (and ten in MA...).

Glad you liked the idea. It was hard to find an 8-letter word that generated countries for each pair of consecutive letters. If you play the sequel, you'll see I managed to do one pair better. But I have yet to find a word where all pairs yield answers.
