no, that seems a bit narcissistic, and unreal.

It also strongly depends on the language, which language should be spoken in AR054?

MSTR, it is an English-speaking country

You mean Ingerish?

Then it should be a name which should make sense in Ingerish. You can look for other Ingerish countries here to get some inspiration or look at neighbors (okay, I'm not sure what they are) or it could be a former Ingerish colony... there are many possibilities, take a few days to think about a good name, it's better to think about it some time instead of changing it several times.

Another Ingerish colony? Oh no...

@DudeMap555: Mstr has great advice here. If you're going to do an Ingerish-speaking place, do consider the surroundings. I'd also encourage you to look at the potential terrain (and maybe even map a bit of it) as a source of inspiration. Also keep in mind that many English-speaking places in our world have names that are derived from words created by the original inhabitants. Here are three very good lists to reflect on: Australia, Canada, United States.

I've looked at the etymology of states in the FSA, and found that most names come from either...

  1. The native peoples,
  2. Something related to the founder, or
  3. The natural features, which in this case was even derived from another OGF language! Perhaps a different Ulethan superpower could have claimed the area first before being overpowered by the Ingerish.
