Country-specific templates

Most countries now have country-specific stub templates and categories, in the form ((CountryName-geo-stub)) and Category:Country Name geography stubs (for example, ((SriLanka-geo-stub)) and Category:Sri Lanka geography stubs). Many of these countries are further broken down by regions. A full list of these categories and templates can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Stub types/Geographical. A list of the exceptions to this naming rule can be found below:

NB: ((Antarctica-geo-stub)) is used for all of the Antarctic covered by the Antarctic Treaty except the subantarctic islands, which use ((Subantarctic-geo-stub))
