I noticed some of the tests were named "Countries". Is it about the name of the countries in Arabic or dialectal variants of Arabic?

It should be MSA. However, many noticed that there are some words that are not standard and more likely from dialects (Egyptian mostly). This is in addition to the pronunciation of the sentences which is dependent on a text-to-speech machine which really doesn't do a good job for grammar or even pronouncing some of the words correctly.
