country_select, how edit the list?

Hi! I have created an abstract submission form for a world wide
congress using Ruby on rails. Every thing works fine except that today
I got an email from some one from Taiwan that didn't like that her
country was a province of China. Apparently Taiwan is listed as
"Taiwan, Province of China" in the country selection list that Rails
provides. So my qeustion is, it there some way that I can alter the
country list so that people from Taiwan don't feel offended?

Thanks in advance
Fredrik

I'd imagine that if you saved the countries in a hash, that would be
the first place to check. Or if its' stored in say a country
database, just pop into the db and update that countries info.

You can change the COUNTRIES constant that is defined in
ActionView::Helpers::FormOptionsHelper module:

ActionView::Helpers::FormOptionsHelper::COUNTRIES[ActionView::Helpers::FormOptionsHelper::COUNTRIES.index("Taiwan,
Province of China")] = "Taiwan"

hope it's help.
