More Geography-a-Go-Go

Following on the heels of "How many US states can you name in 10 minutes?" is "How many UN Member States can you name in 10 minuites?" Click here.

I got 118 and left 74.

These are the ones I left: Andorra, Angola, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belize, Benin, Bhutan, Botswana, Brunei, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Comoros, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Djibouti, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Fiji, Gabon, Gambia, Georgia, Ghana, Grenada, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Kiribati, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lesotho, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Malta, Mauritania, Mauritius, Micronesia, Moldova, Namibia, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Samoa, San Marino, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Suriname, Tanzania, Togo, Tonga, Tunisia, Tuvalu, Ukraine, Uruguay, Vanuatu, Yemen, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Okay, some of them I have no excuse for forgetting. Some of them I've never heard of (Djibouti?!—I need more time with the Atlas, I guess). I might have gotten a couple more if I had more time, but I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out precise names (just "Netherlands" but "The Bahamas") and trying to remember how in blazes to spell Azerbaijan.
