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.

The Vatican is not the same as vatican city and people should learn the difference.

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

It isnt. There is a reason why in all the answer sheets it is shown as vatican city and Italy. Those are the common names. Vatican is accepted on this site as a courtesy. I guess because in speed quizes it takes too much time to type, just like saint nevis and kitts, or marshall islands.

ps the is a difference in "The Vatican" and the country vatican city. Maybe that why you have vatican in your head? The vatican is in vatican city.

Vatican City is also known as the Holy See

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.

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.

I disagree. It's mere coincidence that a majority of the countries ending with "y" are in Europe.

Cyprus should really change its name to end in Y, just to emphasize its European credentials.

But oddly, the European countries only end in Y when using their English names...

Italia, Norge, Deutschland, Magyarország, Türkiye, Città del Vaticano

Perhaps we can reintroduce Araby, and Malagasy, to make it less Euro-Centric?

None of them ends In Y either in my language. But I cant think of any that does, but that doesnt say much, cause on this quiz I blanked I could not think of more than hungary uruguay and paraguay (and apparently last time norway aswell)

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.
