Description

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

There are several inconsistencies in how "zones" are described in the game list.

1) The View menu and column header list (where you right click on the header to change which columns are displayed) shows "Regions", while the Right Click -> Properties -> Info tab for individual games says "Country"
2) Japan is referred to as JAP in the View -> Regions menu
3) Europe is referred to as PAL in the View -> Regions menu

Fixing these is simple, but I'm not sure what to change them to. "Country" covers most cases but isn't great for Europe or World. "Region" is generic enough for everything but is ambiguous with region game types (PAL/NTSC/etc.). "Zone" could work but might not be clear enough.

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

Yes, 5.0-12930
