Well, in that case I'll list the country name from italian point of view =3
England -- Inghilterra
Germany -- Germania
Netherlands-- Olanda
Hungary -- Ungheria
Sweden -- Svezia
Denmark -- Danimarca
Finland -- Finlandia
Iceland -- Islanda
Czec republic-- Repubblica Ceca
United State -- Stati Uniti
America -- America
Japan -- Giappone
China -- Cina
Poland -- Polonia
France -- Francia
Greece -- Grecia
Italy -- Italia
Spain -- Spagna
Austria -- Austria
Switzerland -- Svizzera
Turkey -- Turchia
Russia -- Russia

Plus, just like Suki said, the grammar (and the pronunciation) is different in each language, so the name of the countries had to be "fixed"...
Following Suki's example, United States in italian is "Stati Uniti", because put United before States in italian is gramatically wrong, just like "European Union", that in italian becomes "Unione Europea".

By the way, sorry if there are grammar error, but I don't know very well english...

Am I totally blind this time? When I'm dreaming the dreams that I fear, some call it nightmare and some call it life, what is the sense of existing in here?
And I think of the sadness when I'm dreaming of leaving the pain, I don't get all that madness, and it drives me insane
