Question Guess the Country

New game. Same as the old "guess the city" game except this time we play with countries.

I'll start.

Name two countries that are named after the primary river system in the country.

Niger and Nigeria?

Or if you wanted different rivers, the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

As far as I know that's not a little arbitrary. You could make a case for at least Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey and if I remember correctly even the Norse culture.
Let's say Germany then.

PS does 'countries' include all formable nations from Europa Universalis?

I would make the case for Turkey, but since you mentioned it, you're up!

This country is 94th out of 188 on the 2015 HD index. Given the state of this country this little fact indicates just how bad things are for the bottom half of the list. It's also known for one of its former leaders having had an all female bodyguard.

Indeed. It was the one I thought of immediately.

Correct. I did wonder whether that was a well known thing. Apparently it is
Kinda hard to think of something that allows unique identification of a country without giving it away straightaway.
Maybe we should include former nations?
