Countries Without An A 2020

Every nation around the world is identified by its unique name. Some names are long, while others are short. Some nations have names made up of two words. And others, like the ones in these lists, are missing a specific letter. In this case, that letter is "a."

There are plenty of countries that have the letter "a" at least once in their names – the United States of America, Canada, and China, for example. There are just 33 nations in the world that don’t contain this letter in their name.

It is important to note that many of the countries on this list do not contain the letter "a" in their names that are commonly used but may have the letter in their official name. For example, Egypt does not contain this letter, but its official name – the Arab Republic of Egypt – does.

Africa has the most countries lacking the letter "a" with a total of 12. These countries include:

In Europe, a total of ten nations lack the letter "a" in their names. Those countries are:
