Can I throw in a few words to see if any are the right sort of thing: Culture, Economy, Politics, Religion, Science, Nature?

There is something wrong with the Niger, Benin, Togo, Ghana, Burkina Faso borders. Are these relevant to the answer?

That's five! Although Ghana wasn't changed.

They aren't relevant to the answer, they are the answer. I made 11 changes to this map.

And Crimea is still in Ukraine :)
I'm guessing the image I used was initially made before 2014 but after 2011 (whenever South Sudan became independent) so the question of Crimean sovereignty was not one of the intended answers.

Nice idea. So, it's not some anagram where the changed countries spell out the four green ones?
No, but interesting concept! (Let's go short form and a little anachronistic.)

America
Burma
Libya
Mozambique

I sorted them alphabetically thanks to the alphabetizer:

A=5 | B=3 | C=1 | E=2 | I=3 | L=1 | M=4 | O=1 | Q=1 | R=2 | U=2 | Y=1 | Z=1

How are the alphabetizer's numerical values given?

Btw, it's good that it's not a spelling program:

No Falkland islands/South Georgia? The non-connected offshore territories are not changes are they?

Is Puerto Rico missing deliberately? (and also Hawai'i?)
