Somaliland is sovereign, as that word is generally understood. The government in Mogadishu has no influence on it, or if one prefers, it has much less influence than the EU has on Greece. That sovereignty just isn't recognized as such by other states.

Yes. Isn't it amusing that "eSwatini" and "North Macedonia" are immediately adopted as the proper country names by Jetpunk yet it refuses to recognize "Cote d'Ivoire" and "Cabo Verde" as the proper names of those countries?
+1
Level 59
Jun 24, 2019
The idea that the names were immediately adopted is false. Jetpunk took 10 months to recognise Eswatini, not exactly sure about North Macedonia but I don't think it was instant either. "Cote d'Ivoire" used to be the name given to the Ivory Coast by Jetpunk, and I think it was changed because it would set a precedent that any other country stating that its name was the same in all languages would have to be followed, regardless of whether anyone used the name when speaking English.
+1
Level 79
Jun 24, 2019
It's a similar situation for both Ivory Coast and Cape Verde - their delegations to the UN have stated that they don't want the name translated into any other languages. Many, apparently including Jetpunk, have been slow to welcome the idea. It's worth noting that Jetpunk has accepted both versions of both names, as valid responses, for as long as I've been using the site.

Again, Swaziland changed its name to Eswatini what, a few months ago? and it is immediately adopted, but poor Cote d'Ivoire is still, years after it was changed from Ivory Coast, being ignored!!!
+2
Level 79
Mar 13, 2019
I think in one case they are changing the official name of the country. In the other case the name has stayed the same, but they are telling everyone that they prefer you start speaking a different language when you say that name. That seems different to me. If we're going to start using Cote d'ivoire for Ivory Coast then we might as well start using Deutschland for Germany.
