    $\begingroup$ This is one of the most amusing puzzle questions I've ever Benin. I think I'll pop open a Canada soda I got at the store, Denmark the best answer with an upvote. I'll make sure to show all my France this question. India will be happy to know that I upvoted your question too. $\endgroup$ – Devsman Apr 8 '16 at 13:20

  • $\begingroup$ At first I thought this would be related to the Principle of Explosion, as in this (true) sentence: "If Benin is in Libya, then Benin is in China." $\endgroup$ – r.e.s. Apr 19 '16 at 0:12

The answer is:

United States

Because:

The first three letters are IATA codes of airports:

BENin = Benina International Airport in Benghazi, Libya
CANada = Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in Guangzhou, China
DENmark = Denver International Airport in Denver, United States
FRAnce = Frankfurt Airport in Frankfurt, Germany
INDia = Indianapolis International Airport in Indianapolis, United States

    $\begingroup$ I liked that the puzzle was alphabetical, but I was sad it was missing some letters. Now that there's an answer, we can fill in the blanks! :) ALBANIA is in the United States, ESTONIA is in the United States, GHANA is in Algeria, HUNGARY is in Taiwan... $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Apr 8 '16 at 14:53

Another answer could be

INDIA itself. :)

Based on the explanations for BENIN , CANADA , DENMARK and FRANCE given by Bolo.

INDia :: Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, India

    $\begingroup$ Except that IND is not a generally used abbreviation for that airport (it's DEL according to IATA), as stated in your own link. $\endgroup$ – oerkelens Apr 9 '16 at 11:33
  • $\begingroup$ Never mind "generally used", it's never referred to as IND or (INDIA) by anyone, let alone IATA. Nice try, though, Jonny789 :) $\endgroup$ – Chuck Apr 10 '16 at 17:36
