No it isn't -- Holland is commonly used to mean all of the Netherlands, while Catalonia is never used to mean all of Spain.

I do agree that it is commonly (mis)used, even by my fellow country people. But it does not change the fact that it is not the official name, or recognized as an alternative.

Its more like typing "England" for the UK. Both England and Holland have almost everything which we think of the UK and the Netherlands respectively and there really are people addresses the UK as England unlike how there are really no one who calls the US Carolina or Spain as Catalonia

I'm Dutch. The idea that "Holland" is wrong for the whole country is a myth that's often repeated by American tourists and foreigners in general as a bit of trivia but Dutch people use it to mean the whole country all the time. I don't live in the Holland region technically, but I still say I'm "from Holland" all the time.

I don't do that and most people I know don't do that. We say we are from the Netherlands.

If there is anything more cringeworthy than tourists saying "Holland", it is Dutch people saying "Holland".

I'm Dutch and frankly, people calling the Netherlands Holland is incredibly annoying and I would almost call it insulting even.

The Netherlands was formed as a unification between all Dutch provinces (including North and South Holland).

And no, comparing it to many people calling the USA America is not the same as America is part of the full name.

They do. Finns carry as much as possible on the ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki but I think they drink most of their savings on the ferry itself. In Tallinn, not only Finns but tourists from Germany, Sweden, etc spend their days drinking on patio bars throughout the old town.

Mildly surprised not to see Iceland, given its population of, like, eight and popularity of drinking. Perhaps they like spirits more.

It's production, not consumption. I don't expect that they grow much barley or hops in Iceland.

Both have populations over 20 million, and the vast majority of Niger's population is Muslim.

Ireland has a small enough population that one might think it would make the per-capita list. They're not exactly light on production OR consumption. :)

I checked the drinksireland website and per the 2022 report here: https://www.ibec.ie/drinksireland/beer. They said there were 8.083M hectoliters produced in 2022 compared to 3.828M hl in 2021. That is 808.3M kg or 153kg per capita if my conversion is correct. While it may have been below 97kg/p in 2021, so not on this quiz, using 2022 data it would be included.
