Have you scrolled through the entire country selection box?

Which countries from that wikipedia list do you think are missing from Advanced Title Search? Here's what we already have on IMDb:
Most Popular Titles With Country of Origin Argentina/Australia/Austria/Belgium/Brazil/Bulgaria/Canada/China/Colombia/Costa Rica/Czech Republic/Denmark/Finland/France/Germany/Greece/Hong Kong/Hungary/Iceland/India/Iran/Ireland/Italy/Japan/Malaysia/Mexico/Netherlands/New Zealand/Pakistan/Poland/Portugal/Romania/Russia/Singapore/South Africa/Spain/Sweden/Switzerland/Thailand/United Kingdom/United States/Afghanistan/Åland Islands/Albania/Algeria/American Samoa/Andorra/Angola/Anguilla/Antarctica/Antigua and Barbuda/Armenia/Aruba/Azerbaijan/Bahamas/Bahrain/Bangladesh/Barbados/Belarus/Belize/Benin/Bermuda/Bhutan/Bolivia/Bonaire/Bosnia and Herzegovina/Botswana/Bouvet Island/British Indian Ocean Territory/British Virgin Islands/Brunei/Burkina Faso/Burma/Burundi/Cambodia/Cameroon/Cape Verde/Cayman Islands/Central African Republic/Chad/Chile/Christmas Island/Cocos Islands/Comoros/Congo/Cook Islands/Côte d'Ivoire/Croatia/Cuba/Cyprus/Czechoslovakia/The Democratic Republic Of Congo/Djibouti/Dominica/Dominican Republic/East Germany/Ecuador/Egypt/El Salvador/Equatorial Guinea/Eritrea/Estonia/Ethiopia/Falkland Islands/Faroe Islands/Federal Republic of Yugoslavia/Micronesia/Fiji/French Guiana/French Polynesia/French Southern Territories/Gabon/Gambia/Georgia/Ghana/Gibraltar/Greenland/Grenada/Guadeloupe/Guam/Guatemala/Guernsey/Guinea/Guinea-Bissau/Guyana/Haiti/Heard Island And McDonald Islands/Holy See (Vatican City State)/Honduras/Indonesia/Iraq/Isle Of Man/Israel/Jamaica/Jersey/Jordan/Kazakhstan/Kenya/Kiribati/Korea/Kosovo/Kuwait/Kyrgyzstan/Laos/Latvia/Lebanon/Lesotho/Liberia/Libya/Liechtenstein/Lithuania/Luxembourg/Macao/Madagascar/Malawi/Maldives/Mali/Malta/Marshall Islands/Martinique/Mauritania/Mauritius/Mayotte/Moldova/Monaco/Mongolia/Montenegro/Montserrat/Morocco/Mozambique/Myanmar/Namibia/Nauru/Nepal/Netherlands Antilles/New Caledonia/Nicaragua/Niger/Nigeria/Niue/Norfolk Island/North Korea/North Vietnam/Northern Mariana Islands/Norway/Oman/Palau/Palestine/Palestine/Panama/Papua New Guinea/Paraguay/Peru/Philippines/Pitcairn/Puerto Rico/Qatar/Republic of Macedonia/Reunion/Rwanda/Saint Barthélemy/Saint Helena/Saint Kitts And Nevis/Saint Lucia/Saint Martin/Saint Pierre And Miquelon/Saint Vincent And The Grenadines/Samoa/San Marino/Sao Tome And Principe/Saudi Arabia/Senegal/Serbia/Serbia and Montenegro/Seychelles/Siam/Sierra Leone/Slovakia/Slovenia/Solomon Islands/Somalia/South Georgia And The South Sandwich Islands/South Korea/Soviet Union/Sri Lanka/Sudan/Suriname/Svalbard And Jan Mayen/Swaziland/Syria/Taiwan/Tajikistan/Tanzania/Timor-Leste/Togo/Tokelau/Tonga/Trinidad and Tobago/Tunisia/Turkey/Turkmenistan/Turks And Caicos Islands/Tuvalu/U.S. Virgin Islands/Uganda/Ukraine/United Arab Emirates/United States Minor Outlying Islands/Uruguay/Uzbekistan/Vanuatu/Venezuela/Vietnam/Wallis And Futuna/West Germany/Western Sahara/Yemen/Yugoslavia/Zaire/Zambia/Zimbabwe

@Alien Knights of chaos,

By doing a Google search, I don't find any alternate names for South Sudan, it is independent of Sudan as of 2011, and I don't find it on IMDb's list above. Here's the CIA World Factbook article.

Donetsk People's Republic is, per this Wikipedia article, a proto-state in the Donetsk Oblast of Ukraine recognized only by the partially recognized South Ossetia."  It is not yet a country listed in the CIA World Factbook; searching there leads to this article on Ukraine.

Ivory Coast is known as Côte d'Ivoire, which is on the list already.
East Timor is known as Timor-Leste, which is on the list already.

Two of the four countries you suggested are already on the IMDb list posted above under their official names.

My statement about South Sudan was in support of your contention that it is not on IMDb's list yet. If you follow the CIA link, they do list South Sudan as a recognized country.

I'm only a fellow user of IMDb. I don't get to decide whether IMDb will add it to Advanced Search or not. I was just trying to research your suggestions, to give a second voice to the IMDb staff who will make such a decision.

"In support of your contention" means I am confirming what you said.

I am, originally, from Donetsk. I would not dwell too much on that subject, but by all means DPR is not a state. Also Donetsk is a city, so calling is that won't be a good idea either.
