They border the baltic sea but arent generally called the baltics right (atleast that is what i would say, havent checked to be sure)

You're correct. Am Swedish, we've never considered ourselves Baltic by any means and are culturally not close to the Baltic states. We're Scandinavians.

Germany is also on the Baltic sea, yet I've never heard it called a "Baltic country".

The Orange River is also known as the Gariep River which is also six letters. It should count as well.

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)

That's really no different from the Rio Grande which also means big river. I guess people just really aren't that creative.

IN WW2 - Sweden provided Nazi Germany with iron ore, steel, etc. which assisted Nazi armaments and nullified the UK blockade against Nazi Germany......... not quite neutral.

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!

I like your description of what happened to the Netherlands. Apparently the Germans weren't fluent in Dutch.

Sweden also basically had the choice of being neutral and selling Germany material or ending up like Norway and having the German military come and visit. Most of Germany's neighbors (Poland, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, France) have found out the hard way that the German military are not good visitors.

Bolivia is officially 'The Plurinational State of Bolivia,' the UK is 'The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,' and North Korea is 'the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.'

Except literally no one says "The Bolivia". The Gambia is very common. But then again, so is The Ukraine and no one would balk at Ukraine being labelled as 7 letters.

The Amazon is not second longest because of a recent discovery in Peru Almaty is called nursultan now so you might wanna tweak the clue
+5
Level ∞
Feb 22, 2021
Almaty is still called Almaty.
+9
Level 68
May 19, 2021
Without punctuation, this reads as if Almaty was now called Nursultan because of a recent discovery in Peru, which is just weird.

Level 72

Astana was renamed Nur Sultan. Although Almaty has lost its place as the capital, the name has not changed

"European country neutral in WWII" could be Turkey, which was the only reason I answered the previous question with Turkey as the answer. Now Jetpunk considers all of Turkey to be Asian, but that doesn't eliminate it as an actual possible answer.

Turkey wasn't neutral in WWII. They declared war on the Axis in February, 1945. No Turkish troops saw combat, however.
