Quizmaster works very hard to keep country references very standard here. So is this how you want it?
Story time. Once upon a time, on our Oscar Best Pictures quiz, we used the year the movie was made, not the year of the ceremony. I got so many complaints that I changed it to the year of the ceremony. Did the complaints stop? No, of course not.
What I've learned from this episode is that, when there are multiple possible interpretations of the data, you will always get complaints. The worst thing to do is to twist in the wind, tinkering with the quiz to try to stop the complaints. Because you won't. It's impossible to please everyone.
