This is a variant on the What is a Word/Phrase™ series started by JLee.


If a letter conforms to a special rule, I call it an Ants Letter™.

Use the following examples below to find the rule.

Ants™ Not-Ants™
K B
T G
U O
A R
P I

The puzzle relies on the series' inbuilt assumption, that each letter can be tested for whether it is an Ants Letter™ without relying on the other letters.

These are (currently) the only examples of Ants Letters™!

An Ants Letter is one which:

begins the name of a country of the world which ends in 'STAN' (an anagram of 'ANTS').

Like so:

K = Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan;
T = Tajikistan, Turkmenistan;
U = Uzbekistan;
A = Afghanistan;
P = Pakistan.

No country of the world begins with B, G, O, R or I and also ends in 'stan'.
