Burma

 , Myanmar
 The first is the former official name of the Southest Asian nation and the one now preferred by most publications and other informed users outside Burma. Myanmar was for a time used by many publications, but now its use is mostly confined to the country’s government and institutions under its influence. Some authorities write Burma/Myanmar. The United Nations uses just Myanmar.
