Incorrect well not here we call it Irland and Nord Irland true Irland is Republich,
True Ireland is the island. It is not the Republic of Ireland, nor Northern Ireland. Both make up Ireland. What it is called in Denmark or in the Netherlands is irrelevant and mostly reflects ignorance.
When the referendum on autonomy was held, the six counties that make up Northern Ireland voted to remain within the United Kingdom.
do you also call France the Republich of France, The Republich of USA,
Your analogies are incorrect and underline why it will not work.
The 'Republic of Ireland' is exactly what differentiates between the island that is called Ireland and includes the Northern Ireland counties and the state and stamp-issuing entity that does not include them.
Unlike Ireland, the European territory of France is undivided. There is no Republic of France and Northern France that is part of the United Kingdom of Belgium and Northern France. The opposite is true. The stamp issuing territory is France métropolitaine. That is part of the Republic of France. The Republic of France includes stamp-issuing territories like French Guyana, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, French Polynesia, etc.

Oops! You should know better.
I can see the challenge using a letter for a Country and if it has colonies the database do not support sub trees as I can see. USA-Precancelled-N.Y I would still put it under U but there need to be subdirectories so my suggestion was not thought through feel fre to delete the suuggestion.
There is no problem suggesting it. Implementing it becomes more difficult.
I would support adding some code that identifies posts - maybe leaving the blank option for undetermined or trans-national subjects - by the name on the stamps.
But you get into all kinds of trouble as you will fragment some countries and will run into trouble where countries split up.
I still would support the suggestion. Add 'Czechoslovakia' and 'Czech Republic' - hey, there we do it, although Czechia would suffice - and 'Slovakia.' But There is a good chance it will become a mess as collectors of Slovakia may add 'Slovakia' also to Czechoslavak stamps. And German collectors, probably, add 'Germany' to all that is German. I am not even going to guess how many varieties we will see with stamps for Laibach.
Like your example of the 'train' that hinges on the coincidence that the Danish word for train has little but the first letter in common with the English word, USA hinges on the fact that it is an English-speaking state and has 'USA' printed on its stamps.
This will no longer work for many other countries. In English, quite a number of countries do not have the same starting letter as you will find on the stamp.
España - Spain
Deutschland - Germany
Hellas - Greece
Suomi - Finland
Shqipëria - Albania
Also, sub-trees for colonies might complicate it further.
I might undo the Good-Friday Agreement suggesting all Éire stamps up to 1948 should then be listed under the UK.
Many colonies have not changed their names but are no longer colonies. Collecting Suriname: would you want that under 'Netherlands / Nederland' or has that always be 'Suriname?' If the latter: there should be no sub-trees, except maybe for Germany.
