When will countries and cities realize name changes wipe out all recognition they have on Earth and in historical accounts? The name change is generally to something that makes no sense in English as spelled, nor will it ever come out sounding remotely the same as it does in the native language. Third, if translation is needed for every single other thing being said....translate the place name too.

Name changes are often political, besides, it's not really true that if a nation changes its name all racords of its existence are erased, right? We still know about the USSR, Yugoslavia, Macedonia, etc.

I missed that one, too, but the name was changed last year. The Countries of the World quiz accepts both. And out of curiosity, I checked, and this quiz does too, though it is not quite logical to enter Swaziland as coming right after Estonia alphabetically!

Has Jetpunk always used Eswatini rather than Swaziland as the official answer? It seems to be the more "proper" name but since I always type the other answer I forget about that name (similar to Burma/Myanmar, I guess).
