One odd thing I noticed... https://sites.google.com/site/rubbersoul1967/afghan-tan only represents 6 of the 7 nations that end in -stan:
A very huge one called "Kazakhstan" is missing. Why is there no Kazakhs-tan?
Also: another name for India is "Hindustan" so that could also be an 8th character.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/-stan#Country_names_in_various_languages also gives interesting lesser-known options for other nations! talk2ty 21:50, September 15, 2019 (UTC)
