Nations, Capitals and Number String (Posted on 2016-08-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5
"Indonesia" contains the string "one" in order – which describes a number.

What are the other countries and national capitals that contain at least one string (in order) of spelled out form of a number having more than one letter? (Such words also include known mathematical constants like pi, phi, psi etc. Ordinal numbers like first, second, binary, ternary are also admissible.)

*** Plurals are allowed, but abbreviations, acronyms, slangs, or archaic words are not allowed.

*** The countries corresponding to the above list should exclude non-sovereign states, associated states and entities with disputed sovereignty.
