While Vorpommern and Anhalt are smaller than Mecklenburg and Saxony respective,
Palatinate is about same size as Rhineland,
and Westfalen, Holstein and Württemberg are even bigger than their counterparts.
It's a little bit like letting Papua count when Papua-Neuguinea is meant or letting Alsace get through for Alsace-Lorraine.
But it's nice to see that their original names are accepted.
Didn’t quite get them all... when you get all the former DDR ones straight away but forget some of the biggest West Germany ones ‘cause you haven’t studied them as much #historystudentproblems ;)
Kudos for accepting their German name!
(I'm from Hungary and that is how we learned them in school)
