Malaysia
Those in Venezuela, Spain, Ethiopia, Peru, Algeria and France drive on the right side of the road, while those in Malaysia drive on the left side.
In addition, the official English name of Malaysia is the only one given (Malaysia) in the list, while only shorter and common unofficial names are given for Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela), Spain (Kingdom of Spain), Ethiopia (Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia), Peru (Republic of Peru), Algeria (People's Democratic Republic of Algeria), and France (French Republic).

Ethiopia
Venezuela, Spain, Peru, Algeria, France and Malaysia each border an ocean or sea while Ethiopia is landlocked.
In addition, the calling code for Venezuela (58), Spain (34), Peru (51), Algeria (213), France (33) and Malaysia (60) are all composite numbers while the calling code for Ethiopia (251) is prime. 

Peru
The general location of the nations of Venezuela, Spain, Ethiopia, Algeria, France and Malaysia and their capital cities are north of the Equator, while, of the nations in the list, Peru and its capital Lima (122.6' S 771.7'W) is the only one located south of the Equator.
