I got it right away — but have no idea why. Never heard of it before. Although now that I think about it, must have simply been a deduction from the dynamic historic period.

I took a guess at France purely because the dates coincided with Napoleon's rise.

I had never heard of this, but I assume it was some type of metric calendar. That's when they converted to metric units of measure. Guess people had no interest in trying to convert dates.

I just looked it up. They even decimalized timed. That worked about as well as a screen door on a submarine.

The years give it away easily, without them I wouldn't have remembered the whole revolutionary/republican calendar.

They wanted to have more productivity and tried to rationalize the calendar. Instead of having 1 day off every 7 days (sunday), it was just 1 every 10 and they got rid of all religious holidays too. Seems that they tried to change too much too quickly so it backfired as with several other revolutionary ideas they had.

Not really. Two hints would be the one given and add "De-facto capital of the EU".

In my opinion, each city is a different clue, because you only have to know one of the three to identify the country.

If you want to italicize your text, write < em>Whatever you want to say< /em>, and remove the spaces, so it should look like this.

Taiwan as a country was not kicked out of the UN. The sole representative for the country China was changed from ROC to PRC. ROC was kicked out as a representative for China.

Although opinion in USA may differ,I don't know many here in the UK that believe Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan or even in 2011!

No, Bin Ladin is still alive; he's sharing Peanut Butter, Jelly, Banana and Bacon sandwiches with Elvis.
