Which countries we have in the world, and how they are named is a rather  
volatile property. Countries change name depending on the current rule(r),  
and as not-too-distant European history taught us, countries break up.   
The definition of what is a country varies depending on who you ask, so  
such a form control is hard to accomplish.
