At the end of Elia's piece, there's one blogger's wonderful proposal "to add meaningful descriptive adjectives" to other countries' names - and some examples:

“Kinda Democratic Republic of Serbia” (KDROS)
“Democratic Federal and Sometimes Confederal Republic of Three Equal Constituent People and Nobody Else of Bosnia and Herzegovina” (DFSCRTECPNEBH)
People with a sense of humor are just so precious.
