Yakkos Nations of the World

A while back, Wakko, one of the Animaniacs, taught us all how to remember the State Capitols. Now, here is his brother(?) Yakko to teach us all the names of all the nations on the Earth:



Slower, so you can memorize it:



But don't stop at just the Earth... Learn your way around the Solar System:



... And the Universe!:



Finally, the ultimate authority on The Meaning of Life, Monty Python:

I wouldn't recommend memorizing the song now that some countries have changed.

Specifically, Yakko refers to the whole FSU as Russia with no mention (either on the map or in the song) of say Latvia or Kazakhstan.

On that note, I wonder if you could date the song based on the use of Russia, say after the USSR dissolved but before the full autonomy of the individual soviets as states?

You trying to judge the correctness of a list of countries sung by someone called, "Yakko"?

Somewhere from 1993-1998
