Ingorant businesses (Eswatini)

Since 2018 former Swaziland is officially called Eswatini.

How ignorant can a business be? Like Amazon, Ebay, Aliexpress and so on - all of them still has Swazilend on their charters. Even RoyalMail, USPS and SwissPost managed to comply, but big online marketplaces are still living in Victorian times.
For how much longer will we have to deal with "Swazilend" as the default option for "sw" input in a country field in each and every online form in English? I am aware of Sweden (Schweden) still being in the way, but that is a separate issue.

And yes, I accidentally ordered some items and a marketplace allowed me to fill in Zurich, Swaziland in a delivery form.
