Hi Michael, Just on the topic of dealing with input sanitation such as the shortening of Viet Nam to Vietnam and United Arab Emirates to Emirates, most of the one liners I can imagine to fix this (e.g. just removing spaces) would cause problems or confusion in some cases, so should we just hardcode these few examples or try to find a solution that would work globally? Cheers

I might not be correct, but I think since the tests are done by humans, the common instinct when refering to i.e Viet Name would be "Vietnam", im doing the same thing where im trying to find a solution to this.
