Swaziland changes its name to eSwatini.

The King of Swaziland, Mswati III, has decided to rename the country to eSwatini. The name means: "land of the Swazis". One of the reasons for this move is that the King thinks people confuse his country with Switzerland...

Right. So he changed it to a name which makes people think it's an online country...

It's not yet clear if this means that the banknotes will also get a reprint with the new name on it.
