Not the country's capital, but a Betty Crocker baking product consisting of flour, shortening, salt, and baking powder.
You could use some to make a tasty dish of manti (dumplings).

Not the country's continent, but Steely Dan's 6th and best-selling studio album, released in 1977.
Using the band Asia just would've been too easy, wouldn't it have?
Not the name of the provinces into which Kyrgyzstan is divided (of which there are 7), but a McCartney-penned Beatles tune about two characters named Desmond and Molly.
Okay, so this one's a bit of a stretch. But hey, this song was featured on the White Album, the same album which brought us 'Back in the U.S.S.R.,' a country to which Kyrgyzstan used to belong! Coincidence? Um... I think so.
