It's a word chain. The last letter of the word before is the first letter of the word after. Because Tuvalu ends in a U, it must be Ukraine because countries like Russia, Belarus and Poland begin with different letters. If you skip Ukraine, the next country is Ecuador. None of the countries above end with an E either.

A country beginning with N where fjords are found. Almost typed in New Zealand, as that would be a valid answer (but subsequently upsetting the chain) - NZ even has a national park with "fjord" in the name (although spelled fiord) (of course, common sense would kick in once New Zealand was not accepted as the correct answer).

"Where wooden shoes are celebrated" really? I think it is the other countries that do that, coming to the netherlands and buying all kinds of touristsy crap err I mean souvenirs with clogs and tullips.

you make it sound like it is of our present day culture, and we throw clog parties. And have a special day for it etc. I think most people go through life without ever thinking about it once, besides when it is mentioned by foreigners. (Or when you are in amsterdam where there is a souvenir shop every 50meters..)

I guess you cóuld say has become known for. Clogs were used in many countries. And well all countries had different footwear at one point in time, cause obviously there were no sneaker factories yet ;)

I don't get it. Do you want to erase your wood shoe culture? If so, say the word, and I'll do it. I'll replace the question with something about cloudy days, or microgastronomy, or most sex workers per capita or something.

I think wood shoes are neat. Most people think they're neat.

But I guess you want to be a cool, edgy country, like the U.S. or the U.K. I say that you really don't. Treasure your culture. Take pride in the things that make you different. Don't be just another lame clone that copies whatever they are doing in Los Angeles.
