No it isn't -- Holland is commonly used to mean all of the Netherlands, while Catalonia is never used to mean all of Spain.

I do agree that it is commonly (mis)used, even by my fellow country people. But it does not change the fact that it is not the official name, or recognized as an alternative.

Its more like typing "England" for the UK. Both England and Holland have almost everything which we think of the UK and the Netherlands respectively and there really are people addresses the UK as England unlike how there are really no one who calls the US Carolina or Spain as Catalonia

I'm Dutch. The idea that "Holland" is wrong for the whole country is a myth that's often repeated by American tourists and foreigners in general as a bit of trivia but Dutch people use it to mean the whole country all the time. I don't live in the Holland region technically, but I still say I'm "from Holland" all the time.

I don't do that and most people I know don't do that. We say we are from the Netherlands.

If there is anything more cringeworthy than tourists saying "Holland", it is Dutch people saying "Holland".

I guess that's what happens when I figure there's no need to read the qualifiers on a simple quiz and don't scroll down to the answers being displayed.

It doesn't seem very good beer region knowing what I do about the environment.

They do. Finns carry as much as possible on the ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki but I think they drink most of their savings on the ferry itself. In Tallinn, not only Finns but tourists from Germany, Sweden, etc spend their days drinking on patio bars throughout the old town.

Mildly surprised not to see Iceland, given its population of, like, eight and popularity of drinking. Perhaps they like spirits more.

It's production, not consumption. I don't expect that they grow much barley or hops in Iceland.

Aussie brands of beer are by far the most consumed brands in the country.
