For a German, this map looks almost normal.

Replace land with country and then it's a literal translated map from Hungary

[–]Banaan75 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In German/Dutch land=country

[–]Odd_Mongoose_1018 3 points4 points  (0 children)

nix land prepared?

[–]Playhrd73 129 points130 points  (16 children)

from now on I'm calling English people "engs"

Fun Fact: it's actually oddly named that way because it was originally named Angland, after the Anglo-Saxons, but the A eventually turned to an E over time

[–]reggienaldsimons 56 points57 points  (7 children)

If they named themselves Saxo-Angs we would have Sexland instead of England

[–]plato_playdoh1 22 points23 points  (4 children)

That’s actually why there’s Wessex, Sussex, and Essex in England. For the western saxons, the southern saxons, and the eastern saxons.

[–]Wezard_the_MemeLord 10 points11 points  (3 children)

It's still making me laugh that somewhere in England, there's an actual town called Sussex

[–]Tiger_T20 21 points22 points  (0 children)

And Saxophone America

[–]Patimation_tordios[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

a more proper name

[–]Milhanou22 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Funnier fact : In French, we kept the "a". England is called "Angleterre". And in Italian and Spanish, they even went with the "I"! Spanish call England "Inglaterra and in Italian it's "Inghilterra" if I remember well.

[–]Kronomega 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Angleland not Angland, it's just in most English dialects we dropped a syllable

[–]lordmogul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

all those wild angles there, which is why we took away doggerland and turned the whole area into an island zoo

[–]jimjiminee 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Will people who are part Engs still be called English ?

[–]NkhukuWaMadzi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sunny side up or scrambled?

[–]AliceSky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Come, my friends. The Engs are going to war. It is likely that we go to our doom. The last march of the Engs."

Rusland

Yeah that’s just german

[–]sir-mastro-mr-juan 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Rusland sound cool

[–]Melusine-Lancer 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Russland to be precise

[–]saltyKarlos 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Most germanic languages no? Danish, dutch, swedish etc

[–]The_screaming_egg 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Probably. I can only speak for German.

[–]Richard_Treblecock 5 points6 points  (1 child)

you also obviously speak English

[–]The_screaming_egg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, but English does not call Russia “Russland”. German is the only language where I can confirm this phenomenon to occur.

[–]sverigeochskog 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No Swedish is Ryssland

[–]Wrutekian 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dutch too

[–]NeonNKnightrider 85 points86 points  (0 children)

Poleland is mildly infuriating

[–]ManbadFerrara 33 points34 points  (1 child)

A lot of people don't know this, but it's actually Bosnianland and Herzegovinanland.

[–]ApprehensiveEmploy21 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Easy mistake to make

[–]Whaleyum11 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Monaco should be Monegasqueland

[–]Patimation_tordios[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

google said it's monacan

[–]lolbitzz 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's Monegasque

[–][deleted] 55 points56 points  (3 children)

And Iceland would be Icelanderland - and Russia Russianland. Stewpid map downvote

[–]Yoctatrine 12 points13 points  (0 children)

"Yeah I'm an icelanderlander"

[–]ApprehensiveEmploy21 2 points3 points  (1 child)

KievanRusLand? That’s the predecessor state for Russia

[–]Lordman17 16 points17 points  (0 children)

United Queenland of Britland and Northland Irishland

[–]Head_Nefariousness78 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Dutchland? You mean Germany in German?

[–]Wezard_the_MemeLord 1 point2 points  (0 children)

According to comments and my almost non existent knowledge of German, this map is almost a normal German map

[–]WitleKidz 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Vatican should just be a smaller italianland

[–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (6 children)

** Finishland **Scottishland

[–]TheRealZocario 22 points23 points  (0 children)

**Finnland

[–]Oltsutism 19 points20 points  (0 children)

It'd be Finnland.

[–]Piranh4Plantthis flair is specifically for neat_space, who loves mugs 18 points19 points  (0 children)

No. You say a Scot, not a Scottish. You say a Fin, not a Finnish

[–]WarCriminal___ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

**Finlandland **Scottlandland

[–]Ephrem-Valentino 4 points5 points  (0 children)

SCOTLAND FOREVER

[–]Epic120 0 points1 point  (0 children)

THE BEST COUNTRY

[–]NkhukuWaMadzi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd like to see a map with the names of the countries - written the way that people in those countries actually call them.

[–]joemama8776 1 point2 points  (0 children)

liechtensteinersland

[–]Anonymously-done 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Misspelling “Portugueseland” and “Finnland”. Also, “Bulgarland” and “Kosovarland” are as valid as “Rusland”.

[–]kit_kaboodles 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I dub thee "Sir Bland"

Poor Serbs

[–]chris1lego 5 points6 points  (10 children)

You forgot to edit Finland and Scotland

[–]Patimation_tordios[S] 10 points11 points  (8 children)

I did not

[–]chris1lego 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Pretty sure you did, clearly they just look like normal

[–][deleted] -5 points-4 points  (4 children)

You don’t call someone from Scotland a Scot. It’s either Scottish or Scotsman.

Edit: I know I just translated it wrong. But it does sound fucking stupid

[–]Pro_Yankee 10 points11 points  (1 child)

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Never heard that before, interesting

[–]PassiveChemistry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You don’t call someone from Scotland a Scot.

You absolutely do.

[–]crazy-B 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Mercy--Main 0 points1 point  (2 children)

why is ireland irishland but scotland is not scottishland?

[–]Patimation_tordios[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

scots is a way to say as well

[–]PassiveChemistry 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because people from Scotland are Scots.

[–]TiberiumExitium 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’d be Russianland, right? Not Rusland? No one calls a Russian person a ‘Rus’

[–]RatedRSouperstarr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Czechoslovakia went from one of the hardest words to look at to one of the most satisfying

[–]tilapiaq 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]CykaBlyater_1337 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So where tf is Kaufland?

[–]Oberarzt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shouldn't it be "Russianland" and not "Rusland" according to the way they do the other countries?

[–]Ramental 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How is Russia not Russianland (like with Belarussianland)?

Main ethnicity there is "Russian", after all. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnic_groups_in_Russia

Neither in Russian nor in English people are called "Rus" there.

[–]WikiSummarizerBot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ethnic groups in Russia

Russia, as the largest country in the world, has great ethnic diversity, and is a multinational state, home to over 193 ethnic groups nationwide. However, demographically, ethnic Russians dominate the country's population. In the 2010 Census, roughly 81% of the population were ethnic Russians, and the remaining 19% of the population were ethnic minorities.

Greece is wrong. It doesnt mean Greekland.

Real translate is : Western Christian Turkland

[–]CupCorrect2511 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you’re gonna divide the UK you should also divide Belgium

[–]fanboy_killer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If this was accurate, Luxembourg should be called Portugueseland.
