The numbers 95 68 53 20 spell a "country name".

What country am I?

You don't need to separate the numbers

All of the numbers represent two letters, except 53, which is one letter.

I hope you're good at science.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling! (Take the Tour!) You might want to look around a little and see how other folks frame their puzzles. As @n_palum mentioned, vital hints shouldn't be "hints", they're part of the puzzle. Non-vital hints are generally best left until some time has passed with no progress on the puzzle, rather than given right away, as they can give away far too much about the puzzle up front. Thanks for joining the PSE community! $\endgroup$ – Rubio Jun 5 '17 at 17:47

Elementary, my dear Wheatley!

Your "country name", really the common name of a pair of continents, is AMERICA. 95 = Americium, 68 = Erbium, 53 = Iodine, 20 = Calcium

    $\begingroup$ You made it too easy with the "hints", especially where you called out 53 as being one letter. $\endgroup$ – Jeff Zeitlin Jun 5 '17 at 17:23
