I executed the "select name from planet_osm_point where name like 'Tchad%'  
and place='country';" query and the result look similar to what I was  
getting on my map.

See result here: http://b.imagehost.org/0738/Chad.jpg

I also executed the "show client_encoding;" query and the result I got back  

Could this be my issue?
