How to map
Add the place=country to a node and name it using name=<Country Name>. Locate the node on a neutral spot (preferably on public land), so as not to draw attention to private properties or to their owners.
Other useful information about the country can also be added, see the examples.
name=België - Belgique - Belgien - Default name for the country, English or main national language recommended.
int_name=Belgium - How the country should appear on international maps, English is recommended.
name:en=Belgium - Name in English, recommended.
official_name:en=Kingdom of Belgium - Full official name of the country
name:cs=Belgie - Name in another language, as many as possible for easy searching.
