Can you name at least 10 countries in Africa without peeking at a map?

I'm watching the news and they are discussing Africa, in particular Mali and Canada going over to help the Malians.  One of the questions that was asked was can you name 5 countries in Africa. 

I'm curious, without cheating and looking at a map, can you name at least 10 countries in Africa?  There are 54 countries to choose from.

ETA:  Can you name the African country that is smack dab in the middle of another African country?

UPDATE:  Answers on page 4 of the 55 African countries.

 You got 8.  All the ones you listed are right.  There are 2 more well known ones that no has mentioned yet.

United Arab Emirates (formerly Egypt)

Sudan

Nigeria

Ivory Cost

Senegal

Sierra Leone

Morocco

Tunisia
