just a lateral note: there is some inconsistency.

name = France
name:de = Französische Republik

IMHO it should be either name=République française or name:de=Frankreich

You could also go for official_name=République française,
official_name:de=Französische Republik, ...
I'm not sure if this is needed, probably you would do better just use
the wikipedia-interlanguage-links.

cheers,
Martin
