This is really great. Thank you for taking the time to do this.

I think in general, there's just been some confusion regarding expected inputs/outputs for both parts of the project. Michael's done a great job clarifying this in the forums, but I still think there remains many edge cases. This may be acceptable for somebody writing a program for their own research, but makes it difficult for students to be confident that their code can receive full marks.

A better solution in future may be to simplify what the expected inputs can be. Eg. Country names must be an exact match, otherwise print an error. It is very ambiguous what a country's "well-known" names are. What may be well-known to one person, could be foreign to someone else.
