I wanted to figure out the ******** of my five friends I recently met online but they didn't want to say it straight forward, so they said it in a cryptic way.

I asked them one by one and these are the answers I was given.

Person 1: Mr yes → (5)

Person 2: You speak → (3)

Person 3: Yes dude → (5)

Person 4: Number road → (6)

Person 5: You going to → (6)


Can you figure out how to interpret these answers?

I think the asterisks here are hiding the word:

LOCATION (or equally, HOMELAND or something similar) - specifically, each friend is concealing the name of their country in some cryptic-esque wordplay...

Person 1: Mr yes → (5)

KENYA = KEN (a man's name) + YA (yes)

or (possibly better in keeping with the 'soundalike' style of the others)

SYRIA = sounds a bit like "Sir yeah" (in particular accents)

Person 2: You speak → (3)

USA = sounds like "You say"

Person 3: Yes dude → (5)

YEMEN = sounds like "Yeah man"

Person 4: Number road → (6)

NORWAY = sounds a bit like what you get when you put together NO. (number) + WAY (road)

Person 5: You going to → (6)

UGANDA = sounds like "You go'n' to"
