How can I get the country name when I put the mouse on the map?

CountryData["World", {"Shape", {"Equirectangular", {0, 180}}}]

Slightly modified from the first example in the "Properties & Relations" section of the CountryData entry:

GeoGraphics[{
  EdgeForm[Gray],
  Tooltip[Polygon[GeoVariant[#, "SimplifiedArea"]], CommonName[#]] & /@
    CountryData["Countries"]
 },
 GeoBackground -> None,
 GeoProjection -> "Equirectangular",
 GeoCenter -> {0, 180}
 ]
