Why give us Vatican City? It's the name of a country, it should be fair game

I think it's because most people just use "Vatican", but "Vatican City" is more accurate.

Can't reply to Sulps...so here is my reply...this is a quiz to test your knowledge, if you don't know it's called Vatican City, then you deserve to miss it.

IMO Vatican is a valid short name for a country, just like in all other cases, e.g. Italian Republic

Vatican City is also known as the Holy See (I think)

As far as the whole Vatican / Vatican City debate is concerned, think about this. How many people outside the quizzing fraternity would even know that it is a sovereign nation in its own right?

Probably most Catholics, for a start. There's a decent number of them, I think. Certainly many more people are aware of Vatican City as a sovereign state than, for example, San Marino.

Its not the person who created this quiz's fault that a majority of the countries that end in Y are in Europe, though I know what you mean.

I fell far more aggrieved that 16% of South American countries end in y. Yet you have lowly Africa continuing to be disrespected and not getting a single crumb. Come on mythical being that names and determines the spelling of countries you can do better than that. If you believe in equality then gosh darn it a good 9 or 10 need to be immediately renamed to rectify this egregious bias.

Frustrating when that happens, although I do know that this site makes an effort to be fair to everyone in this sort of situation. But the 12 Jan 2015 date-stamp here may not have been the date it was written. It was the date it was last updated, and an update always happens the day it is featured because a photo gets added.
