Yup. Other popular ccTLD (country code top-level domains) which are used by people from all over are .cc (Cocos/Keeling Islands), .cx (Christmas Island -- both of those belong to Australia and are roughly SSW of Indonesia), .nu (Niue), and to a lesser extent .tv (Tuvalu), .fm (Federated (States of?) Micronesia), and .am (Armenia) for the broadcasting industry. is a good list of what domains there are (and contains links to the registering agency, if known, in case you want to go right ahead and register your Tajikistan domain ;)

I suppose: * Verduria - .vd, since .ve is already Venezuela * Kebri - .kb (.ke is Kenya) * Barakhún - .bk (.ba is Bosnia and Herzegovina; .br is Brazil) * Ismahi - .ii (.is is Iceland, .im is Isle of Man) * Flora - .fl * Érenat - .en (.er is Eritreat) See for a map of the area of most interest for me (and whose languages are most fully described) on Mark Rosenfelder's world Almea.
