Just to fire up the years old feud, Taiwan is listed as a country in the other Jet Punk quizzes but is still not recognized. However, I agree that Greenland is part of Denmark. Iceland was part of Denmark for centuries and in 1918 got further autonomy before finally in 1944 getting full independence.

While Greenland enjoys a large degree of autonomy, they don't claim sovereignty and they accept that they are a territory of Denmark as I understand it. Taiwan is very different.

Why is The Gambia here when El Salvador (The Saviour) is in the E quiz? Surely The Gambia should be in the T quiz, no?
+1

Oct 29, 2021
Gambia is just a shortened version and isn't integral to know what your talking about but El Salvador is different because everything is translated. Also might cause confusion with the capital city (San Salvador)

To be honest, I'm more surprised that someone can get Guinea and not Guinea-Bissau. It's one of the pairs you would think that you eiter know both, or none. Like the Congos or Koreas, for example.

It's usually listed as "Gambia" or "Gambia, The" in alphabetical order, and the word "the" would be a prefix. (same thing applies for countries such as the U.K., where it is listed as "United Kingdom, The")

As German, I hate the word "Germany" for Deutschland.

Germany was a roman name for a region in the country called Germany today. The romans are doomed since more than 1,500 years. There has never been a single contiguous folk which could be called "Germanen".

In my opinion:

International it should also be called "Deutschland". It shouldnt be to difficult for English native speekers.

For those who call it "Alemania" as the Spanish speekers: You could call it "Duitslandia" as the Dutches.

EVERY language has exonyms of some sort, they're different languages for a reason. Just like the Ivory Coast/Côte d'Ivoire wasn't able to convince the majority of people to use the French name, it would be nearly impossible for people to accept the name "Deutschland". For example, in German (Deutsch if you will), they call Belarus "Weißrussland" (literally "White Russia", even though Belarus has discouraged use of the name.

The stupid me I am was thinking of what I forgot, so I tried typing in Greenland.

I did get Georgia in time though!

Also, for some reason, my first instict was to type in Guinea and Guinea-Bissau instead of Germany, despite seeing the thumbnail.

I typed in Greece and Gabon next.

Don't worry, I didn't forget Germany.
