Re: Falkland Islands - I have decided to use only the English name for the country. It is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom and most of its citizens reject Argentina's claims or request for sovereignty talks. If you want to know the Spanish name? Islas Malvinas.

@JSEVEY - Including 'Republica' on most of the names does seem redundant. However, for the sake of consistency, I used the official government name of each country. Think of it as a way to reinforce your knowledge of the type of governments most South American countries employ. :)

Having republic in front of everything is kind of redundant isn't it?

Great game! But! You should not include Falkland Islands in my opinion, because there are many countries requesting sovereignty over many pieces of the earth, such as Spain over Gibraltar, and then many games on PG are to be worked over...
Don't you agree?

I've decided to include both names. Even though Britain has control of the islands, Argentina still claims them in its constitution and continues to request sovereignty talks. If anything, we'll know the name in two languages and be all the better for it.

I had no idea! Thanks for the heads up. I'll be sure to make it right.

I really don't think the English people of the Falklands have ever called their islands by the Spanish name. That's rather silly to have that in there. A war was fought 25 years ago over whose territory it is and the Brits won. Ridiculous
