This is like the Holland debate. People should call this country the UK, not Great Britain.

And now time to move on to South Korea.
Thank you Slasher I always thought since there was Royalty there Kingdom should be in the name, I just didn't know the official name of the country! And now I can also see where the confusion comes in because it is the "United Kingdom" UK of "Great Britain" GBR. This thread is terrific
