Missing countries

Democratic Republic of the Congo (one of the largest nations in Africa) is missing under the country selection drawdown. Republic of the Congo is a different nation.

Also, French Polynesia is still missing.

It is also missing South Sudan, which gained independence from Sudan in July 2011.

It sucks because I was just planning a trip for next spring to go peakbagging in South Sudan. Now I have to cancel it.

You're right, very strange that DRC is not in the list. Amongst the "new" states, Palestine is also missing along South Sudan.

Why should French Polynesia be listed separately? It is part of France.

Since 2004, it's been granted status of an overseas country rather than a French overseas territory. I think it would be better to list it as a country since it has been granted that status. It would also make searching for mountain pages there easier.

If you annex it or segregate it, they will come!
I haven't checked the list yet, but is Boulder listed? :lol:

Actually Kinyeti in South Sudan is 3187 meters or 10,456 so probably a good time
