Enjoyed this one. I'm surprised more people don't know South Ossetia... as its a war zone.

I suspect many more people will know about S. Ossetia after the Olympics at nearby Sochi, as it will surely be brought up by the broadcasters. How many people will pay attention (or care enough) though?

Yes another mistake by a Russian leader. The leader who gave Crimea to Ukraine way back when was from Ukraine... Now Russia wants it back. Now South Ossetia is a war zone. All because of Russia.

Not correct. South Ossetia doesn't exist. It's a Georgian region called-Samachablo. No one united north and "south" ossetias. The "southern" one has always been within Georgia. Only after Georgian-Russian war in 2008 it was occupied and called "south ossetia''. It's an autonomous region. Stalin was georgian but he didn't really care about...

@Gyrenaica, Would not surprise me, Stalin also was the person who made the really complicated borders with Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan as a way of making sure they wouldn't want to get independence, but that plan is backfiring as there is a lot of problems in that area because of that.

Recently, Czech Republic changed their name to Czechia. Just thought you should edit the quiz.

Level 82
Jul 18, 2016
Not quite - they adopted Czechia as a short form of Czech Republic, which remains the official name. Though I do wish Czechia were accepted in more quizzes, as it speeds up typing and I'm lazy.
+2
Level 62
Jul 13, 2021
Nope, Mongoose was correct. They changed their official short-form name from Czech Republic to Czechia; it’s the full official name that remains Czech Republic, just like how Russia is officially the Russian Federation.
+2
Level 82
Nov 27, 2021
How is what you said different to what I said? "They adopted Czechia as a short form of Czech Republic". Mongoose implied that they had changed Czech Republic to Czechia, I was pointing out that it was only that Czechia was now accepted as the short form, rather than Czech Republic no longer being the name. I was right. You weren't wrong, but you didn't correct me.
+1

May 2, 2023
The other guy is sorta right here because it's so common to avoid using the longer names of countries. It's semantics but what the everyman would call Czech Republic has changed now to Czechia, but the longer name has been kept on in an official basis only.

You are correct Quizmaster, I am also Dutch. Although two of the twelve provinces are currently called North- and South Holland, Holland is a region which can be subdivided. It is an important historic region too, which had a dominant role in the development of the country and the language. This is why the name Holland came to be used interchangeably with the Netherlands, although this is technically not correct. North Brabant and Limburg are also regions in the south of the country, but historically these were connected with the Belgian regions of Brabant and Limburg. People from Brabant or Limburg often call us people from Holland, "Hollanders". People from the Belgian region of Flanders often call all Dutch people "Hollanders" incorrectly. Also, we would never refer to ourselves as North Hollander or South Hollander. Then again, people from Holland normally identify themselves as being from a city rather than the region (e.g. Amsterdam or Rotterdam instead of Brabant or Limburg).

I thought that North Holland and South Holland are provinces in the Netherlands, but "Holland" is a colloquial term for the country as a whole. Could be wrong though.
