Germany is not called "German Republic". Denmark is not called "Danish Republic". Yet the Czech Republic has been in this situation since the dissolution of Czechoslovakia.
Well, no more! It's official: we can now call the country "Czechia".

If only Montenegro could change it's name to "Monte-AfricanAmerican"" then they could join NATO.

It'd be so much easier if they merged again.
