Hi, when searching for paris on nominatim, the first result is paris in arkansas. This is confusing because for most people in the world, Paris refers to Paris in france.

Would it be possible to have "status" of places impact sorting of the results ? As Paris is capital of its country, it could probably appear first in the result.

Also, google maps gets it right:
