Suggestions for Final Countries in Reading Around the World

My last post was about how I am so close to finishing my project now over ten years in the making of reading a book from every country plus as many island/standalone territories that are geographically unique from their parent countries as I can. I got a lot of suggestions and someone suggested I post them somewhere, so here we go.
