Are all of them numbers in the same language or numerical system? Are they written out numbers (ie, eight vs. 8)? A mix of alpha and numeric numbers? Are they in the language of the country? Are Roman numerals relevant?

Is the country in North America? South America? Asia? Europe? Africa? Oceania? Is it a modern-day country? Is it a fictional country?

Is capitals significant in that some letters resemble numbers? Such as B=8? S=5? Is the name written in the latin alphabet? Cyrillic? Other? Is it written using the English spelling? Native? Are those different?
