This Wikipedia posting lists a few more 6-letter historically neutral countries: Turkey, Norway and Latvia, as well as Mexico since 1939 (with its current position unclear), and, since 1989, Panama.

I agree, and I'm sure Sweden is recognisable enough that another clue could easily be found!

Turkey (then Ottoman Empire) was involved in WW1, Latvia, as an independent nation, didn't exist on either World War, and Norway was forced into WW2 due to German invasion. Sweden had been completely neutral, with no involvement in either war

Turkey did not participate in WWI, it was established in 1923. Yes, Mustafa Kemal fought in the war, as did many Turks, but that doesn't make Turkey the same as the Ottomans.

I disagree heracles4, as the Ottoman empire was led from Turkey and it was Turkey that remained, all their other territories were given to Britain and France. It's no different from saying that Russia wasn't involved in either world war because at the times it was in completely different formats to the Russia we know today.

Well it also depends on you're definition of Russia and Turkey. If you're speaking of the government format that led the wars and declared them, no. Russia(not the Soviet Union just plain Russia) did not fight in the world wars, and Turkey did not fight in WWI. However, if you're speaking of the people and the descendants, the part in my opinion that actually matters (since whatever type of government you have you're still the same people), then yes. Turkey and Russia both fought in those wars. It's not as if the population magically replaced itself. They simply changed their government and lost territory.

But see, the quiz is a little vague. But it seems reasonable to me, as the only particularly neutral countries that pop into my head are Sweden, Switzerland and Spain. Spain isn't even that famous for it's neutrality. So if you consider the variable that most people don't look into records to see who's been neutral for the past century or so, then the quiz works out for everyone 99.9% of the time. However, it did bring up some interesting historical debates, lol. Danke schon.

The most famously neutral countries are Finland, Switzerland and Norway. I didn't even think of Sweden at first, even though I live there :D

Ireland's pretty well-known for neutrality as well, and the first country that jumped to mind was the Vatican. But considering the quiz theme, I'd say the clue works well.

I thought this, as in Switzerland has literally never been involved in any major war, but Sweden definitely was during the Napoleonic era which wasn't that long ago in a way...

IN WW2 - Sweden provided Nazi Germany with iron ore, steel, etc. which assisted Nazi armaments and nullified the UK blockade against Nazi Germany......... not quite neutral.

if you're going off neutral countries selling to warring countries then none in Europe were really neutral, Sweden sold a lot of raw materials to Germany, Ireland sold a lot of food stuffs to Britain, Switzerland bankrolled half the third Reich and the Netherlands tried to be neutral but Germany just didn't get that memo, Sweden was officially neutral though but was just trying to make a quick buck!
