what about the arctic?
Jul 01, 2003

The Arctic is the general name for the area around the North Pole. It is not a country.

Great teaser!
Jul 04, 2003

what about Angola, I'm pretty sure there are other countries out there that start with A but end in another letter, and I do realize that it was a trivia teaser so I didn't really expect to be teased but all in all it was a good think!

achillesfeb17 - Surprisingly, Afghanistan and Azerbaijan are the only countries that begin and end in different letters even though there are around 15 countries that start with 'A'! ...

Uh, America is not a country. It is what we commonly name the U.S. of A.

The teaser was enjoyable and a great geography check-up touched what is a sore spot for many people from the United States of America. There is no country, America. The Americas encompass two continents and many vibrant cultures and countries.

Also, you did miss the Azores and American Samoa in your list of possible answers to the question.
Sep 13, 2006

Please ignore American Samoa above. Emotion got in the way of thinking.
Oct 19, 2006

Azores = islands in the Atlantic Ocean belonging to Portugal. Therefore not a country ... just a region of one.

Good trivia.
