Country count total exceeds countries in the world

When I search my User table and count the total number of countries, I get 235, but there are only 195 countries in the world. Are territories or other autonomous regions filtered out? Is this a function of our data or of Metabase?

Thanks!

Hi @Sarah_McRae
It would not be possible for anyone to answer, since it requires access to your data to know.
Try listing your countries and look through the list to spot the problem. It could also be caused by different casing or extra characters.
