I think the characters (for want of a better name) that ask these silly questions, do so to create the arguing that ensues. In future all intelligent Jetpunkers just ignore these half-brains and with luck they may go away.

Both UEFA and FIFA have Scotland Wales England and Northern Ireland as separate countries. They even have Gibraltar and Faroe Islands as ´countries´. So it is not stupid to think it could be an independent nation.

level 60
Feb 27, 2019
I believe the reason why anyone would ask about Northern Ireland is that the British call it a country even though it's not a sovereign nation. It's just their choice - Just like other countries choose to call their similar areas states.

just to get the discussion going... holland are provences of the country, north and south holland. It has wrongly been used as the name of the country, probably because centuries ago the most influential people came from those two provences ( and perhaps utrecht)

+1
level 60
Sep 20, 2018
With other first letter country quizzes in which Jetpunk accepts a very common variant, I think the quiz should add a free answer for Papua New Guinea, just to save people typing in the answer. The C first letter quiz does that for both Congos and for Ivory Coast. The B quiz does so for Myanmar. The M one does so for Micronesia (although, interestingly, not Myanmar). See also the P quiz and Palestine. [Note: I don't think that it's necessary for the Netherlands even though the issue does arise there too.]
