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 with at least one "a" 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.
