I’m glad you enjoy the game, furyousd!
1. The game autosaves after each ingame day, at the end of the Night phase. This is meant to discourage savescumming.
2. This was originally a deliberate choice—the names are meant to draw you to countries that resonate with your real-world experience, and we wanted players to not really know what they were getting into (just like real immigrants often do). But feedback has shown that this vagueness keeps some immigrant players from identifying countries that reflect their own heritage. We are considering adding country descriptions in a future patch.
