Burma

Explanation:

[STC002514] This is not one of those weird geographic quirks where we give countries English versions of their actual, local names (we still aren’t sure why this became a thing). The Southeast Asian nation formerly known as Burma formally changed its name to Myanmar in 1989, at the same time as several of the country’s towns also adopted new names. Some countries — including the U.S. — did not formally recognize the switch, claiming it was done without the approval of citizens. As a result, it is normal practice and generally accepted to use the two interchangeably; nonetheless, Myanmar is the name that is recognized officially.
