Country List

I understand why you reverted the page but wouldn't that same logic apply to Canada? Should we move it? What about the releasable countries list? Before I split the lists, all the "Kingdom of" and "Republic of" countries were together, so I applied that to my previous change on the country list. I'm willing to fix it for consistency if you want. Although, I'd need to know beforehand what to do with the following countries: Co-operative Republic of Guyana, Commonwealth of the Bahamas, Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, Duchy of Schleswig-Holstein, Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg, Independent State of Croatia, and Independent State of Samoa. Federated States of Micronesia is already in its short name I think. AkatsukiEmpire (talk) 21:21, 27 September 2021 (UTC)

Hi, apologies, I've not paid enough attention to that, but I've noticed that 'Kingdom of' nations were alphabetised with that ignored beforehand, so I thought the same applied to other prefixes like 'Republic of'. Making it consistent is indeed good, and I'm thankful you did that, since it's sorted in the order of actual country names, so you can find a country on the list easily without ctrl+F. Alphabetising with the prefixes counted can be done by wiki automatically with the arrows on the array, so it makes sense for the manual alphabetising to differ from that. Either way, thank you for bringing that up. I'd say that it should follow the order with country names that are generally used to refer to the country like 'Micronesia', 'Samoa', or 'Schleswig-Holstein'. The wiki puts the USA or the UK as 'United States' and 'United Kingdom', but if there was a full name, 'United States' or 'United Kingdom' wouldn't be dropped from alphabetising in that case since it's a part of the name generally used to refer to them. --RandomGuy45678 (talk) 10:03, 29 September 2021 (UTC)
