It looks like they were removed yesterday from the node which I'm
guessing is perhaps where the name comes from?


Having said that, none of that nodes history matches what was
rendered in your permalink, so I don't know whether there is some
code somewhere that mapped
name = ????? ????? (Oman)
name = )Oman( ????? ????? 

Anyway, the parentheses aren't in the name now so they may well
disappear when the map is next rerendered.
