More seriously…. if you think that’s bad enough, try adding a drop-down selector for UK counties – it’s next to impossible. Scotland and Wales both have two incompatible systems for defining counties/”administrative districts”, and while one may be “official”, try telling that to upset users because you used one and not the other…

And, going back to your original point and my reply, I once had a postcard addressed to me in “…. Wales, England”. The most astonishing thing was that it actually got delivered!
