The Czech Republic wants to be known as "Czechia" to make it easier for companies and sports teams to use it on products and clothing.

Well! - Let's petition the UN to force the former Czech Republic to rename itself only with your unanimously agreed-upon name!!! As my Grandma was fond of saying: "The unmitigated gall" of some people!

How is Germany so close to Italy?! It doesn't appear like (going through the skinniest part of Austria, as the crow flies) this could be possible. Only 45 Km/ 28 Mi ??
