Countries Game

A bit like the Cities game but with countries. A bit easier I suppose due to there being fewer countries than cities but lets try it big_smile

Starting at A and ending with Z, post the most obscure country you can think of beginning with that letter. (Whoever gets X gets to post their favourite country but make it clear you had X for the next poster) Then post a fact about the country.

I will start:

Azerbaijan

They won the Eurovision in 2011
