The country infobox template is currently used for countries, states, and territories (the {{state}} template redirects to this template). However, it is possible that {{state}} may be an independent template in the future, so {{state}}, not this template, should be used for a state infobox.

The template is not especially complex (but is reasonably so), but includes a large list of optional parameters.

Many of the parameters have two alternative forms, which are explained below in note A.


A: Parameters of the form xxxx-raw are alternatives to the non-raw form. These should be used instead of the non-raw form to (a) provide links where the article name is different to the displayed name, or (b) where a link is not wanted.

For example, if the capital of a country is Washington, but the page name for that capital is Washington D.C., then you would type capital-raw=[[Washington D.C.|Washington]].

If, instead, the page name is simply Washington, then capital=Washington is all that is needed, and will automatically be linked.

If both non-raw and raw forms are supplied, the non-raw form will be ignored.

B: The language field is automatically linked to an article named "<language> language".

C: Both the king and queen parameters display as a Monarch row, but prepend "King" or "Queen" to the name of the monarch. If neither is required, use the monarch-raw parameter.
