Still under construction[change source]

Most countries are not yet covered.

Do NOT substitute this template at this time, it transludes the entire #switch construction instead of just the link you want.

When adding entries within the template, list countries in alphabetical order. Give wikilinked and non-wikilinked names, as well as any possible abbreviations (eg. United States, USA).

Each country contains 2 switch groups: one for acronyms, another for non-acronyms. This second group should always end with the Independent and default options.

Countries Currently Supported[change source]

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Czechia (acronyms without diacritics)
  • Germany
  • The Netherlands
  • USA
