Updating country names

Post by CosmicMonkey »

Just a minor bit of pedantry, but over the years a few countries have been officially renamed and the site could be updated to reflect that:

Swaziland ---> Eswatini
Czech Republic ---> Czechia
Macedonia ----> North Macedonia

FWIW, this appears to be an official abbreviation for purposes of international bureaucracy. I believe the recognized complete name is still Czech Republic.

Thanks for the updates! We've made those in the system for North Macedonia and Eswatini, though we've left Czech Republic as-is, since it does seem to be the officially recognized name.
