Not only is it confusing or difficult to navigate, but as i highlighted on a different thread, there are a number of countries which aren't even recognized.

If you use the "where would you like to go?" box to search for:

Eritrea get sent to Ethiopia (and the countries don't like each other)
Georgia gets sent to the US state, not the country. (try to redefine to Tbilisi and it sends you to Russia)
Seychelles gets sent to Somalia (slight difference there)
Yemen gets you sent to Djibouti (not even the same continent)
Oman gets you sent to UAE.
Kuwait gets you sent to KSA.

This is only a half a dozen that i've noticed. I'm sure there are more. For a website who claims:

"We envision a world where everyone can explore and create meaningful connections with the people and places they encounter. Building meaningful connections across cultures enables us to respond to differences with curiosity, appreciation and respect. The appreciation of diversity spreads tolerance and creates a global community."

Yet it chooses not even to recognize some countries is a true travesty. I sent this to HQ and got a "we're working on it" response. It's been like this for ages now. Apparently they're NOT working on it as they don't give a F**K!!

Couple more:

Andorra ges sent to France.
Liechtenstein get sent to Austria.
Kosovo gets sent to Macedonia
Brunei gets sent to Malaysia
East Timor gets sent to Indonesia
Guyana gets sent to Brazil
Chad gets sent to Nigeria
Qatar gets sent to Bahrain
Burundi gets sent to Rwanda
Gabon ges sent to Congo
Benin gets sent to Togo
The Gambia gets sent to Senegal
Liberia gets sent to Mali
Guinea gets sent to Mali


Ok, i'm tired of looking. That's 20 (i'm sure there are more) The UN recognizes 193 countries. That means CS is choosing not to recognize well over 10% of the countries in the world as sovereign and unique.
