The official name of the country is not decided at all, and the
temporary method of refering to the country is FYROM. Until the issue
is actually resolved by a decision by the country known to the UN as
FYROM, calling them by whatever name they call themselves
(http://www.finance.gov.mk/gb/index.html) is appropriate.
