Groot(e) rivier just means big river. So (wouldnt it be) sort of a nick name. Ofcourse over time in some instances the description of something becomes the real name. But since it allready has a name. (It might just be when living near london calling it the big city, cause it is the biggest around)

This Wikipedia posting lists a few more 6-letter historically neutral countries: Turkey, Norway and Latvia, as well as Mexico since 1939 (with its current position unclear), and, since 1989, Panama.

Turkey (then Ottoman Empire) was involved in WW1, Latvia, as an independent nation, didn't exist on either World War, and Norway was forced into WW2 due to German invasion. Sweden had been completely neutral, with no involvement in either war

Turkey did not participate in WWI, it was established in 1923. Yes, Mustafa Kemal fought in the war, as did many Turks, but that doesn't make Turkey the same as the Ottomans.

I disagree heracles4, as the Ottoman empire was led from Turkey and it was Turkey that remained, all their other territories were given to Britain and France. It's no different from saying that Russia wasn't involved in either world war because at the times it was in completely different formats to the Russia we know today.

Sweden's last war to be involved in was the Finnish Civil War (1918). That makes Sweden the third longest running neutral country after Switzerland (1815) and Liechtenstein (1868).

Dear Mustardcustard, Sweden had nothing to do with Finnish Civil War. Last war Sweden had was with Norway 1814. And then it has been involved in some conflicts but as a member of the UN or so. Check the list https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_Sweden

if you're going off neutral countries selling to warring countries then none in Europe were really neutral, Sweden sold a lot of raw materials to Germany, Ireland sold a lot of food stuffs to Britain, Switzerland bankrolled half the third Reich and the Netherlands tried to be neutral but Germany just didn't get that memo, Sweden was officially neutral though but was just trying to make a quick buck!

Every country trades with the U.S. and they're constantly going around some country blowing it up. That doesn't make every country part of the war. Usually the invaded country's U.S.-installed puppet government is trading very favorably to the U.S. Does that mean they are fighting against themselves?
