If D*N corresponds to catering trolley, there are two synonyms to consider. Dolly starts with a D, so it might fit somehow. Wagon ends with an N, so it might fit. Finding a way of using both, with the interior letters spelling a country, is a challenge that I cannot solve.

I*ES could be insensitivities. I don't know if nsensitiviti would spell a country, though. I suspect not, but it was worth a try.

I see now that these are languages rather than nationalities.

I also see that they are all European languages.
