France, Metropolitan / France (Includes Monaco)

Hello

In 'Country of Origin' dropdown lists, there's both "France, Metropolitan" and "France (Includes Monaco)". That doesn't make sense. Could they be merged? Or could you make it: "Monaco" (as an independent country) and "France".

I've asked a similar question: why is the "Country of Origin" listed as "United Kingdom" and not separately as "England," "Wales," and "Scotland?"

I've removed the extra france and updated the list. The reason why there is no England etc is because the dropdown is based on the ISO country list:

"United Kingdom" is not appearing. Editing, Country of Origin is not appearing anymore, but the flag of UK on the profile is. The value was "UK", now is "GB", I guess that's why, but still. Here:

And why some countries have the official name now, like "Korea, Republic of" and "Korea, Democratic People's Republic of", instead of "South Korea" and "North Korea", while "Italy" still "Italy" and not "Italian Republic"?

I've fixed the UK problem. I'm just using the country list as it is listed in the wikipedia page above, I guess I could change some of the names to their better known versions though.
